Isadore Jacob Davis
Izzy, I.J. or “Bey”, to those who knew Dad from his
childhood days, passed away on December 25, 2017 at Parkland Shannex,
Saint John, N.B. at the age of 96. A life-long proud resident of Saint
John, he was the youngest son of Harry and Ida Davis, hardworking
Dad was predeceased by his parents, sister Rose, and brothers
Abraham, Sam, and Eli and by his devoted wife Ruth Davis (Gauvin), in
2002 after 56 years of marriage. Dad’s unwavering love and
devotion for Mom was evident each and every day.
Dad is survived by his loving family, Richard (Toronto),
Glenn (Vancouver), Sally (Vancouver), Fred (Toronto) and Dan (Halifax)
who kept in touch with Dad by phone everyday when not in Saint John.
Dad also leaves nine beautiful grandchildren and three great
grandchildren. Dad was so proud of each and
every one of us and it showed.
Dad attended public school in Saint John, graduating from
Saint John High School in 1940. Dad volunteered for the Armed Forces
during WWII and later continued to support those who served at the
Jewish War Veterans, Atlantic Division, working alongside his dear
friend, Garfield Meltzer. A successful business
man, Dad rose to film distribution manager for the Atlantic Region
