Oscar Leon Davis

The Rev. Oscar Leon Davis Sr, 76, of Ridgeville, SC, was summoned by God to enter Eternity on the evening of Thursday, June 2nd. On Saturday, June 23, 1945, he was born to Clifford Davis and Sally Hawkins Davis in Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee, and blessed to be raised by Elizabeth Davis.

He pastored for over 20 years at Rosemount Baptist Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

In addition to his parents, Oscar was preceded in death by brothers Elehue Davis and Randall (Mary) Davis, sisters Gertude (Shellie) Colbert, and Addie Mae (Stockard) Webster.
