An account has been opened at Evolve Bank & Trust to help the family of Shelby County Public Works employee Pierre Davis, who was killed this past Monday (August 4th) while cutting grass along a right-of-way near Raleigh.
“Mr. Davis had been married only a couple of months. The tragedy has been especially difficult for his wife, Ashley, and their two young children, Pierre, six-years-old, and Andre, three-years-old,” said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell Jr.
Luttrell asked that flags be lowered to half-mast at Shelby County facilities through Saturday, the day of Davis’ funeral.
Davis, 29, an eight-year employee with Shelby County Government, was honored in 2011 as one of the County’s “Top Performers.” He worked with his fellow employees at the Shelby County Roads and Bridges Department.
“Mr. Davis had a dedicated spirit to serve the public and was very kind to his fellow employees at the Shelby County Public Works Division. Those he worked closely with asked for the fund to be established to help his family,” said Tom Needham, director of Shelby County Public Works.
Contributions can be made to the family of Pierre Davis at Evolve Bank & Trust, 6070 Poplar Avenue, Suite 100, Memphis, Tennessee, 38119. Checks should specifically be made out to Ashley Harris Davis.
Family visitation for Davis will be held on Friday (August 8th) from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at M. J. Edwards Funeral Home, 4445 Stage Road. The funeral will be Saturday at 10 a.m. at the funeral home, with burial in Calvary Cemetery at 1663 Elvis Presley Boulevard.
