Donald Cloyce McDavid

A funeral service for Donald Cloyce McDavid was held Jan. 4, 2021, at Holly Springs Baptist Church, with interment in the church cemetery. Riverwood Family handled the arrangements.
Mr. McDavid, 58, of Brookhaven, passed from this life Dec. 31, 2020, at his residence. He was born in Brookhaven on Feb. 10, 1962, to Lafayette Whitney McDavid and Betty Lou Williamson McDavid. After high school, he went on to complete his Bachelor of Arts from William Carey and pursued a career in law enforcement with the Jackson Police Department, then worked as a security officer for the Federal Government and later trained to work with HVAC. Donald was an outdoor enthusiast, spending many hours walking in the woods or just watching the beautiful night sky. He also enjoyed the opposite end of the spectrum through car racing and Alabama Crimson Tide football. His passion was reading, ending each day with the riches from God’s Word. His greatest joy recently has been his great-niece, Blakley. Donald will be missed by all those who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Tony Lafayette McDavid.
Those who remain to cherish every memory are his parents; half-brother, Mike McDavid (Becky); sister, Tammy Knight (Mike); half-sister, Sandra McDavid; nephew, Hunter Lafayette Knight (Theresa); niece, Whitney Alice Knight; and great niece, Blakley Alene Knight. He also leaves behind a very special best friend, Bettye McAllister (Gerald), as well as other loving family members and friends.
