Troy Blaine Davis, 65, returned to his Heavenly Father on July 12, 2014 in Idaho Falls, Idaho; he passed away at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. He was sent on life flight when he was placed on life support.
Blaine was born October 26, 1948 in Pocatello, Idaho to Truma Teton Davis and Stanford Davis. He was a special person all his life; he lived his entire life in Fort Hall, Idaho. He loved his family, especially his beloved mom, who cared and took care of him for the last 65 years. He loved his sisters, Andrea, Pam and Renae, and his numerous nieces and nephews, including Tat Davis and Cody Davis. He loved all his relatives. He worked at Dawn Enterprises in Blackfoot, Idaho for over 40 years, earning the respect and love of his closest friends and co-workers. He loved going there every work day and meeting his friends. He had many friends in the Blackfoot community and was cherished by them. His mom taught him to do beadwork and his favorite store was Kesler’s in Blackfoot, Idaho.
At Christmas time, he would make sure that everyone in his immediate family would receive a special Christmas present from him; he would go on his annual shopping adventure with a sister and afterwards would go out to eat. His favorite stores were the dollar stores and Walmart. His gifts were practical and useful. Those who received his gifts were very appreciative of receiving something that they needed from Blaine. He was a great shopper. Some of his gifts were calendars, clothes, finger nail polish for the girls, laundry soap, coloring books, shoe polish, shoe laces and hair bows for his nieces.
He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Finally, his greatest legacy of his life was his life of kindness and gratitude, often after he did something nice for someone, he would alway tell us, “Don’t tell anyone.” Those special moments were his timeless trademarks; his smiles would always greet you when you would come to visit. These were the special moments of his life. He loved his family deeply.
