It is with sadness the family of Roy Davis announce his passing on Monday, February 20, 2023. Roy was lovingly remembered as “Big Louie”. Louie was the #1 Winnipeg Blue Bombers fan. If you ever wanted a friend, Louie was the nicest guy you’d every want to meet. Big Louie was a social butterfly. In his younger years he sang karaoke at the Park Hotel and always sang “Peggy Sue”. He met with his old teammates at the Old Firehall; he met with friends at 6:00AM at McDonald’s for coffee; he met with Don and Frank at Starbucks midmorning; met with Greg at the Casino and so many other people wherever he went. Close friend Yogi was always there to lend a helping hand. When Big Louie moved from the Old Firehall to Providence Place he met with his buddy Freddy for popcorn or ice cream downstairs. He chatted with many, especially his homecare staff who he said were fantastic. Many thanks to Lynn for running errands for him. Roy worked for Westcan Bulk transport as a tire specialist.
Roy is predeceased by his parents William and Lois. He will be sadly missed by his brother Gary (Linda) Davis; nieces Myrna (Ray), Alanna (Peter); great nephews Bailey, Xander, Logan, Kaden. There will be no services at Roy’s request. He will be laid to rest at Rosedale Cemetery to be close to his parents.
In living memory of Roy, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.jonesparkview.com (Obituaries). Dayna Chamberlain- Funeral Director/Cerys Doan-Funeral Director Intern
