Earle Lee “Bud” Davis died suddenly on Thursday, July 2, 2020, at home. He was born on August 4, 1959, in White Sulphur Springs, Montana, to Eva and Earl Davis. He grew up in Great Falls, Montana, with his siblings Kandi, Mike and Liz. He attended CMR High School and finished in Missoula at Sentinel High School.

He was proficient at anything he set his mind to, from being a Golden Glove boxer to a renowned platform artist for several hair care companies, to owning and operating several Hair salons, as well as various artistic endeavors. But his family life and his cherished friendships were the most important to him.

He lived a larger-than-life existence and made people laugh wherever he went. He was a character that was meant to be on stage, and was several times. All of the lives he touched will never, ever forget Bud Davis. He was the epitome of the phrase “Be the reason someone feels welcomed, seen, heard, valued, loved and supported.”

His greatest treasures in life were his kids, Amber, Lee, Crystal, Sean and Cole, and his grandkids, MaKayla, Earle T, Liberty, Zevan, Zoe, Ziya, Mersadies, Raine, Kamiah and Naomi. We will always remember his large, boisterous laugh and voice, and his colorful, funny stories, and just how important he made each and every one of us feel.

He was preceded in death by his brother Mike Davis, his grandmother Helen Taskilla and his father-in-law and mentor Elvis Gene Smith.

He is survived by his parents Eva and Earl Davis; sisters Kandi Danzer and Liz House; mother-in-law Geraldine Smith; ex-wife Julie Christopher; life commitment partner Cindy Basolo; daughter Amber Nolan; son Lee Davis and his wife Jenny; daughter Crystal Walker and her husband Ashley; son Sean Davis; son Earle Cole Davis and his wife Shantelle; grandchildren MaKayla Davis, Earle T. Davis, Liberty Hobbick, Zevan Walker, Zoe Davis, Ziya Walker, Mersadies Davis, Raine Nolan, Kamiah Davis, and Naomi Davis; and several nieces and nephews Aria Weissmuller, Aris Davis, Alexa Mortimer, Emmy Lund, Tony Smith, Chad Hutton, Ryan Hutton, Shannon Prager, Darren Prager, Michael and Allison Cook, and Madison Gondeiro.

His wishes were to be cremated and for his friends and family to have a joyful party to celebrate his life.
