Stan L. Davis
Stan L. Davis, 73, of Sour Lake passed peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, March 21, 2021. He was born on December 18, 1947 in Des Moines, Iowa to Coleen Shoemaker and Dale E. Brady. Most of his early years were spent in Sioux City, Iowa where his parents Bill and Coleen Davis raised him. Stan was a proud graduate of Sioux City Central High School, class of 1966. He inherited a love and talent for music from his mother Coleen. In the 8th grade he started his first band, The Moon Dawgs, where he was the lead guitarist. Stan also had a passion for sports, specifically, basketball. He attended Briar Cliff College where he played on their first ever men’s basketball team in 1966. While in college, he continued his music career with The Skeeters.
It was during this time, that he met his bride to be, Jeanette Owen. They were married on June 12, 1971 in Rockwell City, Iowa. Stan and Jeanette moved to Orange, Texas shortly after. There, he followed in his father’s footsteps by beginning work at a car dealership, Wickersham Ford. The move to Orange proved to solidify their love for Texas and they knew this is where they would spend their lives. During his time in Orange, he developed a love for tennis and would eventually become the Orange City Tennis Champion. A career opportunity and his love for tennis would ultimately lead he and his family to the Pinewood community in 1980. They have resided there since. His time in Pinewood rekindled his love for golf. Stan spent many early Saturday mornings on the course with “the cronies”.
Stan’s successes in car sales lead him to a career change. He became a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch in 1983 and remained in that profession. He became fully invested in the Hardin-Jefferson community through involvement with little dribblers, his wife and children’s academic and athletic endeavors. That involvement would continue as his grandchildren attended and participated at Hardin-Jefferson as well. He was also proud to have served on the Hospice Board of Southeast Texas.
Stan is survived by his wife of fifty years, Jeanette Owen Davis; children, Clay Davis and his wife, Staci and Kelly Lietzke and her husband, Rob, all of Sour Lake and Chris Davis and his wife, Kristin, of Beaumont; sister, Connie Holles, of Lafayette, Louisiana; grandchildren, Colin Robert Lietzke, Jaystan William Davis, Clayton Owen Davis, Palmer Kate Davis, Ryan Ellington Davis, Mary Crawford Davis, and Driver Harrison Davis; and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Coleen and Bill Davis; and biological father, Dale Brady.
The family would like to thank Dr. Tommy Hinton, Jennifer Bryant, N.P., and Dr. Stephan Rosenfeld for their selfless and compassionate care throughout Stan’s illness. Thank you to Meagan Roebuck and The Team at Kindred Hospice for their loving care. We have the deepest appreciation for Father Martin Nelson as he guided us spiritually.

You and your family are in my prayers and I thank God for the opportunity to have known Stan a true jazz lover and fine person.

Huge prayers for your wonderful family. So very sorry to hear about your loss.
I was heart broken to hear of Stans passing. I can't imagine your pain. I was so touched that Stan sent an email a few months ago. He was full of family news, and it was so easy to tell how much he loved his family. He is free of pain now. Blessings to all of you in your pain of loss.
We will all miss Stan. Jeanette, I pray that God will give you, Clay and his family, Kelly and her family,, and Chris and his family comfort in the days to come.. I always think of Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid.... for the Lord your God,, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” There is so much comfort in that verse along with the hope that we have. Stan was a shining example of a saying by Maya Angelou. She said “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” To me Stan always made me feel better when I was around him. I will always cherish his friendship. Stay strong Davis family , and hold tight to the memories you have of Stan and cherish the time God gave you with him.
Jeanette, Clay, Kelly, Chris and families, my heart breaks for your loss. I didn’t know Stan that well but I know he raised three wonderful children along with you Jeanette. I know he was a great husband, father and grandfather and I know his memory will live on through you. May God hold you near and comfort you in the difficult days ahead.
I will always think of Stan as a very giving person. He gave of himself to the Hardin-Jefferson schools, the Pinewood Community and his family. My prayers will be with his wonderful children and sweet wife in the days ahead .
Jeanette , I am so sorry to hear of Stan’s passing. You and your family are in my prayers. Kathy

Jeannette and family, so sorry for your loss, I got to know Stan thru my sister Jessie and Jimmy Lowell they thought a lot of Stan as I do, he did a lot for Luke and me with our business dealings. I remember at a sports banquet you and I were bidding on the same quilt you got the quilt Stan ask me if I wanted it and I declined, don't know if he told you that or not, but Amy made me one just like it as a surprise. Love you and your family.
