Lyman Vincent Davis of Madison went to be with the Lord on December 1, 2012 while at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg. He was born on October 12, 1947 in Monroe, WI to Lyman Austin Davis and Georgie Cristel Vincent. He grew up in Monroe and attended Monroe High School. He was a student at UW Madison, studying criminology from 1971 - 1973. He enjoyed volunteering in the community and was employed in various governmental agencies in social services. He is survived by his daughter, Elisa (Gregory) West of Stoughton; sister, Lana Davis of Monroe; grandchildren, Ashley (Albert Gandy) Pauley, Hunter Pauley, Austin West, and Elijah West; also various nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Karen Brown. We ask that any memorials be donated to Agrace HospiceCare, Inc.

A poem for you as written by Ashley Pauley.
In the skies above
In the clouds of white
Stands you shadow
With gleaming light
As you watch over us
We feel your love
Day and night
You shine above
Goodbye for now
We shall see you soon
Where the angels fly
Above the moon.

Fond memories of Bub.
I guess the first of many is when I witnessed him breaking up a bunch of 5 bullies who were picking on one kid.
I didn't know what to do but he sure did.
He said "I don't think I like the odds here!"
That was the end of that problem.
And then there were the euchre games that lasted until 4:00 am.
Can't remember how many times I heard "Never send a boy" as he overtrumped me.
Marathon frisbee at the A&P parking lot on 13th ave. Monroe.
Many more...

I knew Bub a long time ago. We used to all hang out together and have so much fun. Yes his laughter and gentleness and kindness. May your loved one come to you all in your dreams to help fill that void you now feel so deeply. Please accept my sympathy.

Ashley on Dec 4, 2012

You're forever in my heart Grandpa Bub. You shall be dearly missed.

R. David Wolfe on Dec 4, 2012

He is Healed...

Dave & Mary Wolfe on Dec 4, 2012

Dearest Lana, Elisa, Ashley, Hunter, Austin and Elijah,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you
walk through this time. May God comfort you
with happy memories of Bub, his laughter,
passion and love - as Bub now dwells in perfect
peace and joy.

John 11:25-26
"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;
and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.'"

With deepest sympathy, Dave & Mary Wolfe

Linda, Frank & Lenice on Dec 4, 2012

We'll miss your smile, your hearty laughter and your passionate nature. You are in a better place.

Fred Rosa on Dec 3, 2012

To Bub's family,

I remember Bub from High School, and my cousins are your cousins, the Davises from Ohio, Rick, Scott, Jay and Marty. I haven't seen Bub since school, but it looks like he has had a full life. My condolences...
