Davis was known throughout the community as a proud veteran of the Marine Corps and for his giving spirit.

He opened Kentucky Knows, which specialized in crafting a variety of coffee flavors aged in Buffalo Trace Distillery barrels, at 337 W. Broadway in late 2016 and became a fixture in the downtown Frankfort community.

A gathering of family and friends for Daviswill be from 1-2 p.m. today at Clark Legacy Center in Nicholasville, 601 E. Brannon Road, followed by a service at 2 p.m. The service can be viewed live on Clark Legacy Center’s facebook page www.facebook.com/ClarkLegacyCenter.
