Toney Lee Davis the son of William Luther Davis and Mary Jeanell (Davidson) Rice was born May 10, 1954 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and departed this life on January 8, 2019 in Mayes County, Oklahoma at the age of 64 years, 7 months and 29 days.
Toney loved life and enjoyed being outdoors whether he was hunting, fishing or just riding his motorcycle. He was an avid hunter and loved being out in the woods. He enjoyed being on the water and fishing every chance he got. Toney loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them. He touched many lives over the years and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and his stepdad Lloyd Leon Rice.
He is survived by a loving family which includes his longtime girlfriend Edna (Ellie) Mae Huynh of the home; his children Toney Davis Jr and wife Shawna of Peggs, Dustin Davis and wife Emily of Park Hill and Casey Lynn Salkowski and husband Raymond of Muskogee; his sisters Janet Hance and husband Neil of Tahlequah and Robin Young and husband Nick of Tulsa; his brother Tommy Davis and wife Charlotte of Salina; and six grandchildren Blake, Caden, Matthew, Maverick, Wesson and Julie. Several nieces, nephews, friends and other relatives also survive him.
So sorry for your loss we are praying for the family.

Tony was a friend and customer. He was a customer first but through the years had become a very close friend. You can't help but like Tony because he was a just that kind of person that was always there when you needed a friend. He just introduced me to deer hunting a few weeks ago. We spent several hours in the woods in a most peaceful and quiet surrounding and we had the most in depth conversation about life. I can't believe he is gone. Thank you Tony for all our hours of conversation and your friendship. I will deeply miss you and of course we never found that elusive deer last month. He said "there will always be next year" but I guess I will be on my own. Thanks again Tony for being my friend.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Toney’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can’t change anything and can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort calm your hearts and help you heal. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow. For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief and death please visit JW.org.
