Alfonso Davis transitioned from this earthly life on July 7, 2023, at his home in Clinton Maryland. Affectionally known as “Al”, Alfonso was born on February 16, 1938, to Alvis P. Davis and Viola Massenburg Davis in Louisburg, North Carolina, where he lived his early years with his siblings.
He joined the Walnut Grove Baptist Church at an early age and remained a member until his death. Alfonso began his education at the Walnut Grove Elementary School and attended the school until the family moved to Franklinton, North Carolina where he lived with the family and attended the BF Person High School. Al held a keen curiosity and eagerness for adventure, fun and intrigue. Hence, he soon left the Franklinton community and embarked on an exploration and journey across these United States. Traveling to Washington DC, he resided several years with family and eventually moved to Chicago Illinois and on to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Al created fun happiness and good times wherever he traveled, but always returned to celebrate with his family, replenish and to upgrade his mother’s flower garden whenever he could. He met and married Ardella Marie Giles in Chicago, where the family established their home. To this union three children were born, Pamela Ann, Michael Earl and Delisiah Michelle. Ardella transitioned this life on August 9, 2009, and is laid to rest with her family in the state of Arkansas. Alfonso established a home repair business known as Good Cents in which he renovated homes in Minnesota, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Al was especially gifted as an artist and created many paintings and creative works. He was well known for his hearty laugh, pranks and preference for luxury cars and great cocktails.
Alfonso is survived by his three children, daughter Pamela Ann, her children LaShonda Regina, Tremaine, and James, Son, Michael and daughter, Delisiah Michelle, her children, Demetrius M, Jannah M. and Ibrahim.
