Roger Lynn Davis

08/14/1958 – 02/16/2021

Roger Lynn Davis, 62, passed away on Tuesday, February 16, 2021. He was born on August 14, 1958, in Beaumont, TX.  He was raised in Dickinson, Tx, by parents Johnnie O'Edith Davis and Thomas A Davis. He resided in Galveston County for the majority of his life. After graduating High School at Dickinson, he went to the Fire Academy then on to a 30+ year career as a public servant. 

Roger was an EMT and then a Firefighter with the Houston Fire Department. A disabling injury forced him out of the Fire Dept and into a career as a Peace Officer. During this time, he was a single father raising 3 children. Roger started with the Friendswood Police Department, later moved to the Jamaica Beach Police Dept, and ended his law enforcement career with the Galveston County Sheriff's Office. He retired and moved to Jasper, Tx in 2014. Here Roger spent most of his time doing what he really loved…cooking and spending time with his family, which included his 3 beloved dogs, Gus, Pete, and Maggie.  Roger was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in January of 2020. He fought a long hard battle with his illness and passed away surrounded by his family and loved ones.

Roger is survived by his wife of 10 years, Leslie A Davis, his 3 children: Brittney K Mouton, Maegan L Canalito, and Roger T Davis, his 3 siblings: Edie Davis, Lisa Reynolds, and John Davis, his 4 grandchildren: Kennison Mouton, Karrigan Mouton, Andrew Canalito, and Alaina Canalito, and many cousins, nieces and nephews on both the Davis and Lout sides of his family.  

Friends are cordially invited to attend a visitation with the family at 10:00 A.M., with the service to begin at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at Jeter Memorial Funeral Home, 311 N. Friendswood Dr., Friendswood, Texas 77546, (281) 992-7200, with Rev. Darryl Patterson officiating.  Interment will follow at Confederate Cemetery in Alvin, Texas. 

Roger loved helping the homeless and feeding people.  In lieu of flowers, please donate in his name to the Galveston County Food Bank, 624 4th Ave N, Texas City, TX 77590

  1. I am so saddened and heartbroken by Rogers passing. To Brittney, Meagon, and Roger. Remember your daddy will always be with you wherever you go. He will be the wind on your face. He will be the warmth on your face from the sun. Your dad loved his life to raise y'all and he loved y'all beyond all measure. I love you three and will forever be here for y'all. My condolences, Janice

  2. The sadness overwhelms me, sitting here knowing I'll never get to sit down with you on your patio and visit, talking about Fire stories, about which gun is the best, how much we love and appreciate our wives and what a blessing our 4 legged "children" are! You were the only friend I had in Jasper and you'll be missed more than you will ever know! Just know what a privilege it was to have gotten to know you, my brother! Know that Leslie will be taken care of with anything she needs! We weren't blood related but were brothers in a way that few will ever understand..the brotherhood of Firefighters! Rest easy, brother, and I'll see you again someday!! Love ya, my friend!!

  3. I am so saddened to hear of Roger leaving us. He was such an upbeat, kind person. I was Roger's Realtor long ago, and financed a home for him. Later, we met in Friendswood where he was a police officer at the time.. We talked old times. My, how the years fly! I pray God will be with his loved ones. Blessings. Winnie Stearns
