Tommy Clark Davis
Tommy Clark Davis was born June 1, 1940 in Nocona, Texas to Travis and Tommie Davis. He graduated high school in 1958. After high school he attended on semester of college for his mother. After leaving college, he worked a few odd jobs before entering the oil field as a rough neck. He met the love of his life, Betty, in 1959 and they were married Saturday, March 4, 1961 in Spearman, Texas. To this union, two sons, Terry and David were born.
Tommy’s job transferred him to Beaver in 1966. After 38 years he retired from Valero to work full time at his spraying business. During his 52 years in Beaver, he was a very active member of the community where he served on the Beaver Library Board for many years. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Beaver. He was a deacon, Sunday School teacher, Sunday School Director and he spent a lot of his time with the youth group at the light house. He really enjoyed taking the R.A. Boys to camp every year. When he wasn’t working or serving his community, he was always tinkering in his shop. He loved working on cars or small engines, but his greatest passion in life was his family. He really enjoyed taking family vacation every year. He loved spending as much time with his five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
The Lord called Tommy home on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 in Beaver, Oklahoma. He is preceded in death by his father, Travis, mother Tommie, an brother Bobby. He is survived by his wife, Betty of Beaver, Oklahoma, son Terry and wife Sarah of Atchison, Kansas, son David and wife Tonya of Beaver, Oklahoma, brother, Arthur Keith Davis of Borger, Texas, sister Karron Gregory of Garland, Texas, sister Betty Lou Haiduk of Panhandle, Texas, his five grandchildren, Hannah, Drew, Lauren, Anthony and Blake, his three great grandchildren, Madison, Alex and Adan and a host of nieces and nephews and friends.
Just saw that Tommy has passed. This just breaks my heart. Weldon also. He loved visiting with Tomorrow at the bank parties and over the El Camino. We drove by the shop about a couple weeks ago. Weldon was wondering if it was setting out side or if Tommy was there working on it. My heart breaks for you and your family. Tommy was so sweet and a joy to talk to. God bless you all.

I first met Tommy when I came to visit Aunt Ruby in Spearman. I thought he was the coolest guy I had ever met. He was married to one of my favorite cousins! Tommy became as close as a brother to me in my mind. Tommy helped me work on my car, teaching me a lot of things that I used all my life. Tommy was a Christian, I wanted what he had. When I became a Christian he helped me there too. Tommy was just an all around good guy. I loved him with all my heart. I know he is in Heaven with our Lord right now. No more sorrow, no more pain. I know our entire family misses Tommy, but no one misses him more than Betty and the boys. My heart and prayers are with them. Love you all.

I was sad to get the news of Tommy's passing, but not very surprised, as he had been ill with heart trouble and diabetes for quite some time. Tommy was a friend and brother in Christ, and Ramona and I extend our sympathy to Betty and the family. Tommy always had a friendly word to us - and I suspect everybody who came through the doors at First Baptist Church. We know that we all will see him again at the marriage supper of the Lamb. Speaking of supper, Tommy told me that he ran a cafe before our time in Beaver. His sweet and sour pork was beyond compare!

Betty and family ~
I am just saddened to read of Tommy's death but happy he is safely in the arms of our Lord. He was so dedicated to his businesses, church, home and family. I was always thrilled to see him at the shop as I would go around the curve leaving or returning from my home in Double J so I could stop to chat a few minutes with him and, of course at the door with Bob of the foyer to greet me at church. Always a pleasant experience indeed. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. My advise at the time of great-void in your lives is to travel the pathway ahead clinging tightly to our Lord's unfailing and unchanging hands. He is always there when the days and nights seem to be alone. I wish I could be there to give each of you hugs but the present-situation and health say "you are in an extended-timeout" so know my thoughts, concerns and prayers are going right straight from Stillwater, Oklahoma. God bless all as-well-as your church-family.

I first met Tommy when I was a part of his Sunday School Group. The passion he had for us kids couldn't be compared to anything. Tom always had our best interests in mind. When we would go to the camp, he'd always be the one to help the new and/or scared kids. I specifically remember one time at camp, we were sanding down a knife together. He was talking about his old truck, his family, and God. The smile on his face is a happiness I strive for everyday. After I joined the youth, I'd always see Tommy at the door greeting everybody and once again he'd have that big grin on his face. We'd talk about whats going on with our lives and how they were going. Tommy was such a rare, caring soul. Because of that, celebrate his life, all he has accomplished, and the fact that he's now home. My prayers are with your family.

I will so miss you Tommy! Your were so much a part of my high school years in Beaver. From the back pack trip my second summer in town (who knew campfire food could be so very good!) to sponsoring prom and other school events, you had a major impact on my life. Your walk with God and willingness to listen and give direction made such a difference in my life. You accepted me for who I was and loved me through adulthood. I consider you among my extended parents. I always looked forward to your smile and hug when we visited church. I looked forward to seeing your eyes light up when I came through the door. The last time I saw you I don't think you remembered me but the warmth and love in your eyes said you knew I was someone important to you. I look forward to long talks and laughter when we meet again. You left an amazing legacy and I am so thankful to have had a small spot in your heart. Love you so so much, see you soon!
