Carroll Lee Davis

Pendleton, Oregon

December 19, 1932 – November 12, 2016

Carroll Lee Davis, a longtime resident of Pendleton, Oregon passed away Saturday, November 12, 2016, at his home. Carroll had been battling Lewy body dementia for more than eight years.

Carroll was born to parents Lillian and Jesse Davis in Salt Lake City, Utah. He grew up in Pocatello, Idaho until his freshman year of high school, whereupon his family moved to Boise, Idaho.

Carroll graduated from Boise High School in 1952, and attended Boise Junior College. In 1953, Carroll was drafted into the United States Army and served in Korea.

On April 18, 1960, Carroll married Eulah Munns in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The couple lived for a short time in Boise, Idaho before moving to Pasco, Washington for ten years, and finally settling in Pendleton, Oregon in 1973, where Carroll lived the remainder of his life.

Carroll worked in the small loan and finance industry for many years. In 1973, he began working as a credit manager for Woodpecker Truck & Equipment, until his retirement in 1995.

Carroll had many interests, and in retirement had more time to experience traveling with his wife, Eulah, friends, and other family. He traveled to several places both foreign and domestic, including Wales, where ancestors on both sides of his family originated. Carroll often times explained that he was a “double Davis,” as his mother’s maiden name was also “Davis.”

Carroll developed a passion for oriental rugs and items from antiquity.

Until his illness became pronounced, Carroll enjoyed several activities such as golfing, skiing, and walking for exercise.

Carroll was a 33rd degree Scottish Right Free Mason, and maintained membership in the Idaho Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons.

He is survived by his wife, Eulah Davis, Pendleton, OR; children Jesse Davis and his partner Carlos Carrada-Ortiz, Portland, OR, Paul Davis and his wife Maria, Pendleton, OR, Ninetta Munns and her husband Ron, Walla Walla, WA, and Owen Davis, Pendleton, OR; grandchildren Emily Davis, Bailey Davis, Mackenzie Davis, Zachary Armstrong, and Preston Armstrong.

Carroll was preceded in death by his parents, Jesse and Lillian Davis, brother Robert “Bob” Davis, and sister Dorothy D’Amico.
