Memories Timeline


  1. CandleImageI’m saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I knew him for many years in Venture Out. We frequently walked to the jetties or enjoyed a cocktail while watching the sunsets. He would always stop by to say hello to my parents. I think about him still on my jetti walks and my coctails at sunset. He was such a nice friend. Soar with the Angels Jim.????????⚓????????❤

  2. CandleImageDavis Family…I love all of you so much! My sincerest and deepest condolences for your loss. I loved James and enjoyed spending time with him in Panama City, FL. I loved the weekends he would let me come visit, and we always would eat fresh caught fish and grill them up. James was quite the gardener and loved to grow tomatoes. I am sure he is in a much better place, now, without pain and in heaven with my Aunt Gloria and with my mom, “Trisha” and all of his family previously passed. He will be missed! God bless our family and friends to mourn his passing. Love…Chris & Sandi Castellaw.

  3. Our sympathies to James family. James was always to pleasant to talk to and enjoyed my cooking. I lived next door to James at Venture Out, he always had a smile. He will be missed.

  4. CandleImageUncle James, I will always cherish my memories of you, and all the great times we had together, from me as a little child, you always had me laughing, and you was always so good to me, you would bring me pecan twirls, which I love, and that time I came to visit you in Panama city, we had a blast!! I love you Uncle James, you will forever be in my heart, R.I.P!!!!

  5. CandleImageWhere do I begin…… I had just moved here from Massachusetts, was sitting on the beach wondering if I had made a mistake. All of a sudden, this friendly older gentleman said “hey sug ,what’s a pretty girl doing sitting here all alone ? I’m James R Davis. Take my number & come join me for a drink sometime.” That was the beginning of our friendship, which lasted right up till Jim went HOME. ???????? I have missed him since he left PCB & moved to Georgia with his daughter , but still continued to call him all the time. Prayers for comfort to the family & friends who loved him ❤️ Fly HIGH Jim, till I see you on the other side! Love you my dear friend ❤️????????❤️????????❤️????????❤️????????

  6. I do not know Jim Davis, but I need to thank him for my favorite sweet snack, Pecan Twirls. My children thank you, and my grandchildren thank you.
