    There isn’t much more that can be said about what great guy Kenny was to his friends and family. I think the bio says it best. All I can say is I have never had a friend that I could count on more or cared about more than Kenny Ray Davidson. This loss is going to be felt by the family and West Nashville for a long time. We’ll never see the likes of a man like Kenny Ray again. He was truly a one of a kind and one off the best men I’ve had the privilege of knowing. Connie and I will feel this loss forever.

    Papa,

    You brought your own special light into each room as you entered. We got to care for you the last year of your life and it was nothing short of eventful. We have so many memories, so many smiles, and now that you are gone so many tears. You were truly a fun loving and quick witted man. You will be missed.

    It is sad that Kenny is gone, God broke the mold, there will never be another. I’ll always associate Kenny with Connie. his beloved Angie and my short time with James. God blessed us with Kenny, he was legend in West Nashville with his quick wit and great personality. My sincere condolences.
