Obituary

On April 15, 1943, a precious baby boy was born in Santa Rosa County, (Milton, Florida) His parents, Bolden, Sr. and Eva named him “Bolden Davis, Jr”.
Although “Junior” was somewhat quiet, he was often surrounded by friends because of the funny things he had to say. He was a kind, mischievous boy who grew up to be a charismatic, loving, and often comedic man.
“Bolden Jr.” graduated from T. R. Jackson High School where he was on the football team.
In February of 1967, Bolden Jr. married the love of his life, Mary Lee Jackson of Baker, Florida. Both were 22years old at the time.
It was a love that lasted just shy of 53 years, until Thursday, January 9, 2020 ── the day he rejoined his parents, Bolden and Eva; sister, Nellie Allen, brother; Tommie Lee Gooden.
Shortly after they married, Bolden Jr. was drafted into the U.S. Army and spent a tour in Vietnam. He returned home and eventually began work at Monsanto (Now called Ascend) in Pensacola, Florida, where he later retired.
His first priority was family!
Bolden and Mary were blessed with three daughters, each of whom he loved dearly from the moment they were born, Erica (Eddie) Andrews, Keyna Davis Parker and Lori Davis.
Then came the absolute “Sunshine of His Life” his grandchildren, Shaylin Parker of Tampa, Florida,Pehton Parker, Darius Andrews and Kaiden Tookes of Milton, Florida.
He was an avid lover of music of all kinds, but especially the Blues. He loved sharing new music discoveries with others. He also loved gardening, often experimenting by attempting to grow odd varieties of plants. But what people may not have known is, Bolden Jr. was an “Inventor”! His wife Mary and daughters have shared the greatest smiles when they see some of his make-shift gadgets!
“Junior” was always the source of joy and smiles to his sisters, Janet Gooden, Margie Davis, Phyllis (James) Palmer, Patricia (David) Riley of Milton, Florida and Bettye (Robert) Sutton of Lompoc, California. They always loved and took care of each other as much as possible.
“Bolden Jr.” touched so many people. He will be missed by his brother-in-laws and sister in-laws: Maxie (Tonya) Jackson, Margaret (Charlie) Bell, Early Jackson, Silvia Hendrix, Roosevelt Jackson, all of Crestview, Florida; Katherine (Luie) Crawford of Milton and Leonard (Carol) Jackson of Windsor, North Carolina.
His nieces and nephews loved when “Uncle Junior” was around. The simple mention of his name brought smiles to their faces because they knew they would soon be laughing.
He was loved by his many cousins, his special friends, Douglas Reid, Gerald Thomas, David Hannah, Solomon Green, Raymack Jackson, and Leon White, and his Godchildren, Eva Poppe and James “Jimmy” Poppe and “Bonus Children” LaTarsha Ukazim, Latoya Mitchell and Jessica Culver.
“Bolden, Bolden, Jr., Uncle Jr., Mr. Junior, Mr. Davis” will be missed by so many, but his kindness, his stories, his tales, his jokes, his laugh, and most of all, his love will live on in our hearts!

Love you Uncle Jr. You are the reason I love wrestling & continue to watch with my family. Can still hear you saying "Hey Sport" when you would see me. May you rest in paradise. Forever in my heart.
