Thomas Mitchell “Tom” Davis, 89, of Fleming Island, passed peacefully from this life at his home on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Tom resided in Palatka for 33 years. After retiring, Tom lived in Crescent Beach, then Fernandina Beach and was currently residing at Allegro Independent Living in Fleming Island. Tom served 4 years in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War and retired from the Navy Reserves following 20 years of service. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in 1959 from the University of Florida, Tom married the love of his life, Donna. They moved from Jacksonville to Palatka where he began his career with First Union Bank (formerly Atlantic National Bank) retiring in 1993 as a vice president. While in Palatka, Tom was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Palatka where he served as an elder and as treasurer. He was also a member of the Azalea City Kiwanis Club where he served as President in 1971. In his leisure time, Tom was an avid golfer, Gator football fan as well as a University of Kentucky basketball fan. He was likewise a Civil War and WW II history buff.
Tom and Donna enjoyed their retirement while at Crescent Beach. They were able to spend many summers in England and Scotland visiting their condo friends, in addition to several river cruises on the Rhine and Danube. Most of all, they enjoyed spending time with their family and friends at the beach.

To Donald & Lee....Words can't express the sorrow I share with the passing of your dad. He was a great man and like a 2nd father to me as well. He was a very proud & independent father who cherished his time with family & friends. He raised (2) wonderful children and was a devoted husband to your mom during their 55 years together. I will always remember our times on the Palatka golf course and many stays at the Coquina, while growing up under the watchful eye of Tom & Donna (Mams) Davis...I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to know your parents and to have become a better person because of it. I share in your sorr0w, yet I know he goes to a better place and will now be able to reunite with your mom and perhaps tee it up with my Dad who died 29 years to the day earlier at that golf course up above. Please accept my deepest sympathies in your time of sorrow...
