Fenel Davis was born on October 8, 1955 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to the late Leola Middleton and Fenel Logan. He passed away at his home in Humphrey, Arkansas on February 9, 2021.
He attended Humphrey Public School and was known as an avid basketball player. After completing high school, Fenel provided several years of service to his country in the United States Navy. He also held a position as a Marine Merchant and served aboard a cargo freighter ship out of San Diego and San Francisco, California. He received a National Defense Service Medal and was discharged from the United States Navy under honorable conditions in 1976.
Fenel was very smart, industrious, and had a huge sense of humor. If you have any memory of “Mickey,” I’m sure the conversation or situation involved a good laugh. He worked various job positions, but had a true gift of using his hands to do just about anything such as laying concrete, plumbing, painting, electrical maintenance, landscaping, gardening, flooring, repairing equipment, free hand drawing, and operating machinery such as large cranes in shipping yards. He loved eating good food, fishing, and the outdoors. Most of all, he enjoyed talking or visiting with family members and friends in the community where we all knew him as “Mickey or Meatloaf.”
He was preceded in death by his sister Markallie “Markie” Davis, grandparents (parents) John and Corean Davis, and aunt Maxine Combs.
Fenel leaves to cherish his memories: daughter Michelle (Doug) Gurley (Humphrey, AR); son Fenel Davis, Jr. (Dallas, TX); three sisters Ronel (Gregory) Duncan (Houston, TX), Mary (Daryl) Jackson (Houston, TX), and Felicia (Blanton) Logan Hill (Oklahoma City, OK); four brothers Terrance Through (Kenosha, WI), Artis Logan (Angola, LA), Steve (Stephanie) Logan (Shreveport, LA), and Gary Logan (Houston, TX); five grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; a special uncle (brother) and aunt John and Mozell Davis; uncle (brother) Charles (Laura) Davis; niece Adrian Peters; nephews Mario and Meko Lewis; cousin Darlene Loudermilk; friend Floyd Howard, and a host of other family members and friends.
