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.
