Christopher D. Davies, age 63, of Leopolis passed away Saturday evening, June 13, 2015 at St. Vincent Hospital, Green Bay.
Christopher David Davies was born on January 24, 1952 in Wareham, England to Thomas and Marjorie (Cobb) Davies. Chris was raised and attended school in England where he completed his college degree in Automobile Technology. Chris worked as a British Bobby police officer and was very proud of his duty protecting the Queen. He volunteered with the Sea and Cliff Rescue Team while in England as well. Chris entered the British Army serving for 10 ½ years and then spent two years with the Multinational Force and Observers in the Sinai Desert, Egypt. Next he worked with the Peace Keeping Forces in Israel for the United Nations. In the mid 1980s he became a pen pal with Brenda K. Luther and with each letter their relationship blossomed. In 1993 Chris moved to the United States and they were united in marriage on May 12, 1994 in Green Bay. The couple owned and operated the Fremont Café for three years. They settled in rural Leopolis in 2000 and started The Mad Englishman’s Pub & Grill located at the Riverside Golf Course, Clintonville. After a couple of years of good service and his excellent fish and chips, the couple closed the restaurant. Then he worked for some time as the service manager at Mills Fleet Farm and then for several years at O’Reilly Auto Parts, both in Clintonville. Currently, he was employed as a semi-mechanic for Quick Transport in De Pere. Chris enjoyed all kinds of music and liked to DJ for events. His other interests included spending time outdoors fishing, boating, and even sail boating in his early years. Chris loved spending time with his grandkids and working in his vegetable and flower garden.
Survivors include his dear wife, Brenda, and four children: Nir Ben-David of New Jersey, Brandon (Lisa) Barr of Appleton, Shawn (Kelly) Davies of Pulaski, and Christpher (Anita) Barr of Keshena. There are five grandchildren: Brianna, Laura, Savannah, Kaylissa, and Brandon Jr. There are three sisters, Christine (Richard) Holland of Wareham, England; Carolyn (Kenneth) Singleton of Swanage, England, and Cheryl (Colin) Marks of Swanage, England.
