Percival James Davies
Percival James Davies – 95, South Branch,
Colchester County, passed away Tuesday, December 22, 2020, at
Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Halifax, he was a
son of the late Frederick and Mary Jane (Daly) Davies.
Percival was an electrician by trade. He was determined,
independent and possessed the patience to attempt almost any challenge
and see it through to a successful conclusion. Dubbed « the quiet
one » by his late brother, Fred, Perc enjoyed his own company,
kept his own counsel and was always ready to lend a hand. He retired
with Hazel to acreage once owned by his father-in-law, Reuben (Mary
Etta) Cox in South Branch.
Percy is survived by his sister-in-law, Betty (Laurie)
Davies; son, Robert (Patricia); granddaughters, Heather and Megan
(Scott) Mackey; grandsons, Ryan and Ian LaRusic; great grandchildren,
Onyx, Liam, Ava; numerous nieces and nephews. Along with his parents,
he was predeceased by his wife, Hazel Mae (Cox); daughter, Jo-Ann
Marie Davies-LaRusic; brothers, Albert, Joseph, William, John,
Frederick, Laurie; sister, Nora.
Thanks to the nursing staff and doctors of E2, Colchester

appreciation is extended to neighbours, Marg and Sam Vezeau for their
