James "Jim" Davidson Obituary

James “Jim” Davidson, of Salem, WV, born June 19th, 1942 to loving parents Virgil & Brenice Helmick Davidson of Kanawha Head, WV departed his earthly home on Saturday, December 2, 2023.

Jim was no stranger to hard work. He worked as a butcher for 30 years at Garden Fresh & Wines Meats of Weston, WV. For the last 36 years- he was the sole owner of Jim’s RV Appliance Repair. His customers & members of his beloved community would describe him as a man of honesty & integrity. Jim had a gift of making people feel valued and strived to continuously give back to those in need. He enjoyed the outdoors, caring for his pets, sharing laughs with his family & fiercely loved his people.

Rejoicing & partaking in his heavenly celebration- he’s preceded in death by his wife, Patricia Nicholson Davidson, whom he tirelessly devoted his heart for 54 years. He also reunites with siblings- Leona Gray Pugh, Louise Hull, Helen Samples, Edward Davidson & Betty Pitcock; as well as one son, James Harold Davidson Jr.

Continuing to live in his legacy of kindness & celebrate his life- surviving him are two siblings, Gerald Davidson of Thornton, CO, and Opal Cunningham of Bridgeport, WV. A daughter, Teresa Webb of Salem, WV, a granddaughter, Cheyenne Rodeheaver & husband, Bradley of Friendsville, MD. He was also blessed with extended grandchildren in Kathleen Williams, Laura Webb, Jennifer Simpson, Sherri Hughes and Karl Webb, as well as three great- grandchildren.

As he will be sorely missed by his family & community, his family asks that you celebrate his life by giving genuine kindness & living his legacy of selflessness. We ask that in lieu of flowers that you consider a donation to the local humane society- as Jim adored his pets & caring for those special ones in need.  The family would like to thank Jim’s caregiver, Kim Fittro and also WVU Medicine Hospice for all the love and support.
