Donald Cloyce McDavid

Funeral service for Donald Cloyce McDavid will be 2 p.m., Monday, January 4, 2021, at Holly Springs Baptist Church with interment in the church cemetery. Visitation is from Noon until the time of service.

Mr. McDavid, 58, of Brookhaven, passed from this life December 31, 2020, at his residence. He was born in Brookhaven February 10, 1962, to Lafayette Whitney McDavid and Betty Lou Williamson McDavid. After high school he went on to complete his Bachelor of Arts from William Carey and pursued a career in Law Enforcement with the Jackson Police Department, then worked as a Security Officer for the Federal Government and later trained to work with HVAC. Donald was an outdoor enthusiast spending many hours walking in the woods or just watching the beautiful night sky. He also enjoyed the opposite end of the spectrum through car racing and Alabama Crimson Tide football. His passion was reading, ending each day with the riches from God’s Word. His greatest joy recently has been his great niece, Blakley. Donald will be missed by all those who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his brother, Tony Lafayette McDavid.

Those who remain to cherish every memory are his parents; half-brother, Mike McDavid (Becky); sister, Tammy Knight (Mike) and half-sister, Sandra McDavid; nephew, Hunter Lafayette Knight (Theresa); niece, Whitney Alice Knight and great-niece, Blakley Alene Knight. He also leaves behind a very special best friend, Bettye McAllister (Gerald); as well as other loving family members and friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Gideon’s International, P.O. Box 1106, Brookhaven, MS 39602, or Holly Springs Baptist Church.
