Joe Davis was full of life, kind, loving, and had a smile that melted your heart. He loved nature, a hard day trades work, and the joy each moment of life could bring. Most of all, he loved his family and friends and would do anything for them. He was a devoted son, brother, and friend.
Joe passed away too early at age 28 from a disease that he battled from his youth—addiction. Recovery from addiction is a process and, unfortunately, it is a disease that cannot be cured. Joe managed his disease successfully for eighteen months before it took his life October 4th, 2009, when Joe lost his battle to an accidental drug overdose.
Addiction is a disease suffered by many. It often goes untreated because of its stigma. Many battle it alone, unaware of resources available to them. As much as he was loved by his family and friends, their support and encouragement were not enough to overcome his disease and its associated problems.
