CAMDEN — On Friday, June 10, 2022, Frederick Miles Davis of Camden journeyed from his life on earth to his life in heaven. Born in Camden April 4, 1935, he was the son of Harold Stanley and Mildred (Leach) Davis, attended Camden schools and graduated from Camden High School in the Class of 1953. He then completed his education at Husson College, graduating in 1957 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.

On August 3, 1956, Fred married his lifelong love, Arlene Rose Magee, also of Camden. This August would have marked their 66th wedding anniversary, but they counted their days together from when they first met in kindergarten, 82 years ago.

Mr. Davis proudly began his working life at a young age with a newspaper route. Following his college graduation, Mr. Davis was employed in succession by the Bangor Roofing Company, the Knox Woolen Mill in Camden for 24 years, and Manset Marine in Rockland for 15 years. He retired in 2000. He served the people of Camden for over 30 years as Trustee of the Job Montgomery Fund. Davis was well-known and will be long-remembered for this dedication to family, his faithfulness to duty, his sharp mind, his love of numbers, his quiet sense of humor, and his slow, batter-baffling curve ball.

His love and faithfulness extended also to God and to the church, attending for many years the Cornerstone Baptist Church in Camden, where he served as a Deacon and Treasurer.

Fred loved traveling with his family, eating lobster rolls, playing Parcheesi, and cheering for the Boston Red Sox. Following retirement, he developed a passion for painting and his work graces the walls of family and friends.

Mr. Davis is surviving by his loving wife, Arlene; four children, Lynne (Ted) Chaffee, Terri (Matt) Wolf, John (Debbie) and Tedd; two brothers, Robert of Maryland, and Paul (Elaine) of Kentucky; three nieces and one nephew. Fred was particularly proud of his 12 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren, soon to be 15.

A small private graveside service was held on June 15 at Oak Hill Cemetery in Camden. Memorial gifts may be made to The Sussman House, 40 Anchor Drive, Rockport, ME 04856.
