Johnny Ted Davis ” Monk”

Johnny Ted Davis “Monk” 55 of Amarillo, Texas went to his eternal home on July 19, 2022.

We will gather in memory of his life at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, July 30, 2022, at St. John Baptist Church, located at 2301 NW 14th Street in Amarillo, officiating Pastor Anthony Harris. Interment will take place at 3:00 p.m. in Borger at Westlawn Memorial Park Cemetery under the guidance of Lighthouse Funeral and Cremation Services, Amarillo, TX.

The family will receive visitors in the Lighthouse Funeral Home Chapel, Friday July 29, from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

Johnny was born April 8, 1967, in El Paso, Texas.  He was the only child in the family born outside of Borger, so they knew he was going to be special. He was a hardworking man and driven to provide for his children and household. He attended Borger High School where he was a star basketball player.  He was a lover of all sports but being that special kid in the family, he was the only Philadelphia Eagles fan amongst a household of Dallas Cowboy fans.  His love of basketball was passed down to his children, nieces, and nephews as well.  He loved to go watch them play and was their biggest fan no matter if they won or lost.  Johnny really didn’t have friends because he treated his friends like family.  So, to know Johnny was to love Johnny.  

Johnny was raised in the Church of Christ.  When asked recently if he knew Jesus Christ, he quickly let them know that he accepted Jesus in his life when he was young and he has never lost his faith in God.  Outside of God, his love for his children reigned supreme.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Johnny “Ted” Brown & Erma Mae (Bowie) Brown, grandparents, Ollie & Lee Bowie and Jesse Webb, his brother, Stanley Davis, his nephew, Mathew Davis.

Those left to cherish his memory are his children: Damian Davis, Autumn Davis, Miahamm Fernandez, Amy Fernandez, Alana Davis, and JayDee Davis.  His siblings: William Davis (Diane), Rickey Davis, Sylvia Davis, Muriel Tinner (Ronnie), Marva Brown. His grandchildren: Kinzlee, Avery, and Babygirl Davis on her way.  He has 8 nephews and nieces, 3 great nephews and a great niece, a cherished aunt and an abundance of cousins and friends.

    when i was a little girl i was very sensitive and would tend to cry a lot my daddy would end up laughing and making jokes bc i had an ugly cry and told me jokes that would end up making me laugh and forget why i was even crying and even if the jokes won’t work he would end up pulling out his big speaker and playing baby don’t cry by Tupac and after that song i wouldn’t cry i would just listen to my dad singing the song and think i have the best dad in the world and end up start jamming out to his r&b songs every since then every time i cry i play that song in my head and think of my daddy bc no matter what and no matter who he would be that shoulder to cry on

    We only pass thru this life one time so I must say this. I met Johnny when he was 19 , I was 21. And we are in our 50’s now. I was impressed by his strength and character. At such a young age he showed so much maturity. Quickly we became close. Not one day passed that he didn’t call or come spend time me in all the years we knew each other. He was kind, compassionate, funny. He was a leader. He lead his life with passion and strength. We shared years of laughter and even in times of trouble he would come to me to seek refuge.I will never forget all he has done for me and my daughter and all the things we talked about. Time spent and shared! Smartest, strongest kind, gentle soul. I will never forget. Johnny left a profound expression on my life. My love and will be with you always. I love you Johnny.

    My Roll dawg, my father/uncle. Can’t even describe the amount of love you’ve always given the family. You always made sure we were taken care of. You couldn’t tell who your kids are because you treated all your nieces and nephews like kids, and for that I thank you. Gonna miss you Unc, I’ll root for your Eagles ? but only when they play anyone but Dallas. We will never forget you and hope as life goes on we make you proud ❤️ Fly high my guy, Heaven just received a legend
