Chris Davis Death, Obituary – During this trying time, we would like to offer our deepest condolences to Coach Chris Davis’ family and friends. On Tuesday, January 10, Coach Davis was at South Iredell High School by himself working maintenance on the field when he unexpectedly became ill and required medical assistance. Although members of Iredell County’s emergency medical services responded to the site, they were unable to bring him back to life after he had stopped breathing.
Coach Davis gave his time as a coach at South Iredell High School for a period of more than six years, during which time he assisted both the teaching staff and the students who attended that school. His unwavering commitment to the organization left an impression on each and every person in the structure. Jeff Peck, the head coach of the South Iredell High School baseball team, revealed how upset everyone is by the unexpected departure of their beloved coach, Davis. Davis had been with the club for many years.
One of the players on the team remarked that “his contagious passion for the game of baseball, as well as his consistent modeling on how to do things the correct way, will be sadly missed by all of us in our South Iredell Baseball family.” “South Iredell lost a terrific coach, facilitator of knowledge on and off the field, a very fine guy, and I have lost a lifetime friend,” said Robert Little, the principle of South Iredell High School. “I have lost a lifetime friend.” On Sunday, January 15, a visitation and memorial service will be held for him at the Beulah Baptist Church in Statesville. The ceremony will be held in his honor.
The visitation will get underway at 2:00 p.m., and the funeral service will start right after that. Donations to the South Iredell High School baseball program are being requested in place of flowers from friends and family of the deceased player. Please join South Iredell High School and Iredell-Statesville Schools in praying for the Davis family and asking God to give them the strength and solace they require in order to get through this challenging time.
