Dateline: Mansfield, MA
Lewis W. Davison, Jr., age 77, a lifelong resident of Mansfield, passed unexpectedly, yet peacefully, at his home on Friday, August 20th, 2021. Following the best summer of his life!
Born in Brockton, MA on June 28, 1944, he was a loving son of the late Lewis W. Davison, Sr. and the late Virginia (Rollins) Davison.
Lewie was a 1962 graduate of Mansfield High School and attended Wentworth Institute in Boston. Where he was majoring in Civil and Highway Engineering. He also served his country as a member of the United States Army Reserve.
A well-known and respected member of the Mansfield Community, Lewie was an incredibly talented and skilled professional framer and operated his own business under the name of Davison Builders in Mansfield for the past fifty-five years. He loved and greatly appreciated his job, his partners, associates and his crew. Regardless of the job, perfection was the number one priority.
Lewie's family and friends were truly the focal point of his life. He was an avid golfer, a member and past president for many years of the Willowdale Golf Course in Mansfield. The time with his golf league was some of his favorite days. And, the food! He was so quick to tell you the story of his two hole-in-ones that occurred during his league days!!
Lewie's most enjoyable moments included dancing with family and friends to his favorite songs and creating memories during his annual Cape Cod Fourth of July vacations. He will always be remembered for his strong work ethic, his remarkable sense of humor, his love for comic strips, the weather, Reader’s Digest, reading, story/joke telling,”rapping,” and the beep and a wave outside of his truck window to all that knew him.
He is survived by his devoted daughters: Kristen Lee Davison and her fiancé John Josey, Jr. of North Attleboro, Jennifer Paine Davison Dowd and her husband John Dowd of Atlanta, Georgia and Mary Katherine Eastwood and her longtime significant other Brian Feeney of Mansfield. He was the loving grandfather of Jordan Lee Sharpe, Stephen Michael Sharpe and Emmaline Lee Dowd. He was the beloved fiancé of Diane Marvelle of Walpole. He was the brother of Diane Davison Rasar of Anchorage, Alaska, Larry M. Matson of Brockton and the late Gail Matson Ferreira. He is also survived by his former wife and friend Virginia L. Fallon of Florida, as well as the members of the Brugliera family. Lewie also leaves behind his fur-grandson James Lewis and the memory of his sheep dog, Nana.
