Early in his life, Reggie started working with his paternal grandfather and father providing lawn services and other projects.  He was very skilled with his hands and could assemble most anything.  Reggie was often with his grandfather working in and around the church. Not only was Reggie intelligent, but he was very articulate and an avid reader.

Reggie was a caring individual who would give you his last if you asked. He was very grateful for whatever was given to him or done for him no matter how small or large.

Survivors include his mother, Kenisha Clark of Greenville; father, Reginald D. Davis of Vicksburg; two sisters, Tyla Vega of Vicksburg and Keyuna Seals of Jackson; a brother, Ryan Campbell Davis of Vicksburg; paternal grandparents, Fred D. and Mary Davis of Vicksburg; maternal grandparents, Susan McFarland of Kansas City, Missouri, and Roy James of Vicksburg; an aunt/big sister, Sabrina (Richard) Griffith of Houston, Texas; and an uncle, Marcus McFarland of San Bernardino, California.
