William B. Davenport, Jr.

January 14, 1925 - November 18, 2017

The angels rejoiced as our dad entered the gates of heaven on November 18, 2017.  He was born in 1925 to William B. Davenport. Jr. and Grace Hodges Davenport.  Kind-hearted, humble and a man of God, we couldn’t have asked for a better dad.  He met the love of his life, Eleanor, after retiring.

He leaves behind three daughters, Becky Williamson (Kenny), Renee Mixner (Frank) and Caroline Rodriguez. Upon his marriage to Eleanor, he was blessed with three more children, Bob Branch (Anne), Frances Clark (Major), and Terry Branch (Sharon ).  All his kids, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a devoted family friend, Jack Abell will treasure his memory. Dad was preceded in death by Eleanor and his son, William B. Davenport III (Ann).

A life celebration service will be held on Tuesday at 11:00 am at Altmeyer Funeral Home, Southside Chapel.  We wish to thank his sweet caregivers at the Gardens and the staff from Interim HomeCare & Hospice for their compassion and tender loving care.  We love you guys! In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favorite faith based organization.  Express condolences to the family at www.altmeyer.com.
