Obituary of Robert Davis, Jr.
Robert “Bob” Davis Jr passed away in his home on the morning of August 29, 2021, at the age of 68. He will be greatly missed for his unique sense of humor, strong work ethic, and immense care for his family, friends, and coworkers. He will be remembered as a great, father, grandfather, husband, friend, and mentor. His heart was bigger than he would ever admit.
Bob’s wastewater treatment career began at the age of 19 working at a pilot plant for the International Paper Company in Tuxedo, NY. After working as an environmental field technician, traveling to various paper mills across the country, he settled in South Carolina. He landed an opening at the lab for Georgetown, SC. He rose from lab technician to supervisor. In 2002, Bob graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from Coastal Carolina University. Bob worked for International Paper for 37 years. Following retirement from International Paper, he started working for Georgetown County Water and Sewer Distinct. In April 2016, he began working as a recycled water supervisor for the Hilton Head Public Sewer District.
Bob is survived by his wife, Susan; his children, Kyle and Kaitlyn; his daughter-in-law, Amanda; his grandchildren, Johnavan, Bailey, Kaidon, and Aubrea. Bob was a private person and never liked being the center of attention. Per his wishes, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, his family requests that those who are able, please donate blood in his memory.
