Billy Allen's Story
Billy Allen "Bubba" Davis Jr. passed away tragically Tuesday, June 6, 2017, in Okeene.
He was born Jan. 4, 1997, in Dumas, Texas, to Kelly Hodges and Billy Allen Davis Sr. He lived most of his young life in Stinnett, Texas.
In 2013, he moved to Elk City for his sophomore year of high school. In 2015, Billy moved to Hennessey. He was a proud Hennessey High School Eagle graduate.
Billy loved to fish and hunt. He loved the outdoors; camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, fishing, hunting, fishing, and hunting! (lol)
He had one life goal: to buy and restore a 1983 Chevy pickup. While that dream never came to fruition, his mom has promised to get it done for him, as his life was cut short way too soon.
At 16, he went to work at Wolf Creek Lobo, where he met a lot of his friends. He worked there for the following summer as well. On his 18th birthday, he applied at Mustang Heavy Haul and got his first "real" job as a man.
He was employed with the company as a swamper. His co-workers nicknamed him "Icepick" because of his size and "Politician" because he knew and talked to EVERYONE!
He never stopped talking about the people he met or the job he was doing. He was extremely mature for such a young man. Billy financed his first vehicle, a 2017 Red Dodge pickup truck, at 20 years of age.
Billy developed long lasting friendships and ties and will be greatly missed by family and friends. He knew no strangers! He may have been small in stature, but he was all heart. He would help anyone.
The pain felt by his sudden loss cannot be described in words. The void it has left will never be filled. He has made his family very proud.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Darrell Hodges; great-grandfather, Bobby Phelan; great-grandparents, Jesse and Evelyn Hodges; and great-great-grandmother, Edna Phelan.
