Obituary

Mr. Bernard Lewis Davidson, 70, of Statesville, North Carolina departed this life on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at Iredell Memorial Hospital. He was the son of the late Claude and Nannetta Lonon Davidson.

Bernard was a 1969 graduate of Statesville High School. During his years of high school, he was a member of the drama club, basketball team, and the Statesville High School Grenadier Marching Band. North Carolina chose the Grenadier marching band to be in the 1969 Presidential Inauguration Parade in which Bernard participated. Bernard retired from Wm. T. Burnett & Co. after 28 years of service. He was a lifetime member of Scotts Chapel UMC where he served as Chairperson of the Trustees, President of United Methodist Men, Sunday School Superintendent, and a member of the choir. He was instrumental in leading the renovation of Scotts Chapel United Methodist Church. He was loved dearly by his church family and community. Bernard’s favorite hobby was cruising in his 1966 Chevy Truck which he named "Ol' Blue".

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Claude and Sally Davidson; maternal grandparents Willie and Nannetta Lonon.

Bernard is survived by his loving wife, Barbara of 35 years; five children, Vincent Davidson (Amy), Coleman Davidson (Jamie), Robin Witherspoon, Derrick Parrott and Tina Tolbert. Bernard and Barbara have fourteen grandchildren; Vincent Andrew, Matthew, Ashley, Akasia, Haley, Rasheed, J’Kyla, Elizabeth, Jada, Saniah, Cameron, Raven, Damien, Tierra and eight great-grandchildren; Caleb, Calaya, Jaidence, Ryan, Cassie, Ryland, AJ, and Angel.

Four brothers: Willie Davidson (Selina); Michael Davidson (Tuwana); Glenwood Davidson (Zoine) all of Statesville, North Carolina and James Davidson (Thwanda) of Seneca, South Carolina. Two sisters: Claudia Tatum (Jerry), Greenville, South Carolina and Gloria Wilson of Troutman, North Carolina; an aunt Mary Davidson; a God Sister Joyce McCall; special friends Cecil Horne and Vermel Moore; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, church family, other relatives and friends.
