Mr. Wayne Davis, age 62, following a brief illness unexpectedly made that wonderful cross over into Heaven at 2:51 p.m. on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at Iredell Health System in Statesville, North Carolina. Born in Thomasville, North Carolina on March 31, 1959, he was the son of the late Carol and Ruth Black Davis.
