Obituary

Axel Davis passed away on April 7th, 2019, just after finishing his last beer with his best friends. He was born in Iowa and had great friends that he grew up with. Many of them have been able to share time with him while visiting in Arizona.
He was a kind and generous man who always wanted to help others. He was known for his talents with tools and motors. He would get joy out of fixing whatever his friends needed. He loved his work as a Building Maintenance Mechanic, and was proud to be a Building Engineer in his latest position.
Having diabetes gave him serious challenges throughout his life and he was always tired of the needles, but accepted it. He got enjoyment from his family, friends, playing dominoes and cribbage, and of course his beer and scratcher tickets out on the patio.
He met his wife Nancy in Manhattan Beach, California, while being apartment neighbors. They married in 1981 and moved to Arizona in 1985, with their daughter Jessica. In 1987, their son Kyle was born. He was a fantastic dad, doing childcare and diaper changes like it was second nature. He was always so proud of his children’s many accomplishments.
He is loved and will be greatly missed, and our memories will keep him in our hearts. We would like to thank Hospice of the Valley for their compassionate care in his final days, and his friends who were here to share in some fun and love with him.

Sorry to hear of your loss Nancy, Jessica and Kyle. I met Axel at Jeff’s, he quickly became a part of our gang. Such a kind man, would do anything for a friend. Wonderful sense of humor and a terrific smile! We had a lot of good times at the bar and in Rocky Point, I will cherish the memories.. He’s probably already making friends and fixing things up above! I hope y’all are are doing ok in this time of grief. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” Take care. Terri Miller I

Axel ,I can't believe you are gone. You said 25 years ago you were surprised that you were still alive ,so glad you hung around. You & Nancy raised a couple of great kids who you were very proud of. Thanks for sharing your family,friends & tools & knowledge with me. We always had fun working ,traveling or just hanging out. Your smile & good attitude were contagious, you were always a great friend & made this world a better place... Tonio Jenness

I'm both proud and privileged to have know Axel as a neighbor and a friend. I was Nancy's roommate and Axel's neighbor. Who would have thought the two of them would have been together almost 40 years. I remember him as quiet and kind. I know he is at peace and with friends and family in Heaven.

My Brother-in-law was the most gentle giant of a man I ever knew! Although living so far away from Arizona I thought of him of often especially over the last few years with his declining health. I know Nancy, Jessica & Kyle will miss him dearly & it's even sadder that his grandchildren will never get to know the truly special man he was! Rest in Peace, Axel! Rita Lang

Axel was my dad, Roger Wickland's first cousin, but since we were only 3 years apart, he seemed more like my first cousin. I do remember in March of 1972 when Axel made his way into the Hotel Savory in Des Moines, Iowa to visit me. We were playing in the Girl's State Tournament. Security quickly stopped him on his way up to our floor, called my coach.....and after much explaining, he was allowed to come up for a fun visit. He always had a smile, gentle voice and was an all around great guy. He will be missed! I know my parents were waiting to greet him in heaven. Vanessa Wickland Branson
