The sentiments were pretty much the same: LeRoy Davis was quick-witted, brazen, a unique character, a good person and loved his church.
"We were tight; we did so much together. You couldn't help but love him," said Dora Chambers, recounting fond memories of her brother at a memorial service for him on Saturday (Feb. 1) at Dave Wells Community Center in North Memphis.
Davis died the afternoon of Jan. 24 in the home at 1051 Morehead St., which he shared with his mother, Katherine Tatum. Dense smoke and flames trapped him inside. Davis was the oldest of Tatum's eight children. He was 62.
