My Life Journey On May 26, 1944, a beautiful baby boy was born to Ms. Katherine Davis and Mr. Booker T. Russell (who both preceded him in death) in Austin, Texas, whom they named Marlon O'Neal Davis. He was the 3rd child of nine children.

He attended Blackshear Elementary, Kealing Jr. High, and Anderson High School. He joined the Army when he was 18 years of age. He worked for Austin I.S.D. for four years. Marlon was always a carpenter by trade, but drove cabs for a living. While driving cabs, he developed a lifetime loving friendship/brother relationship with Mr. Kenny (Popcorn) & Shirley Clark.

He attended Rising Star Baptist Church and formed his own Gospel group in the 1970's called The Davis Gospel Singers. He loved singing gospel and his favorite song he would always perform was "You Got to Move." Marlon had two beautiful baby boys, O'Neal Edmonson and Donald Ray Edmonson with Betty Edmonson (who preceded him in death). He later met his first wife Jewely B. Davis (who preceded him in death) and she gave him a beautiful baby girl, Cecelia Davis-Woods and a beautiful baby boy, Marlon O'Neal Davis, Jr. (who preceded him in death). He later had another daughter, Amy Arreola.

He accepted Christ at an early age and his favorite scripture was Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

He enjoyed his life, living it to the fullest enjoying cooking, dominoes and having BBQ's.

He leaves behind four children, O'Neal & Donald Ray Edmonson, Cecelia Davis-Woods, and Amy Arreola; seventeen grandchildren; five great grandchildren; eight brothers and sisters, Roy, Robert lee, Donald Ray (Barbara), Charles, Samuel, Freddie, Alice Faye (Donald Ray) and Barbara Lynn; one uncle, Arthur and Lena Davis; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, etc. etc. . . .
