David, Atticus Finn (Benton)

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Atticus Finn Davis was born on August 29, 2017 in typical Davis fashion, insanely early, with 12 perfect fingers and ten perfect toes.  He redefined “perfection” for anyone he met.  He fought a losing battle from his first breath, but fought harder than anyone else could have.  He passed away on December 5, 2017 at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.

He is survived by his Mommy and Daddy, Rusty and Dannette Davis; brothers and sisters, Carter Reibeling, Sadie Davis, Gavin Reibeling, Lily Davis and Kai Davis; grandparents, Jackie and Mitch Lindner, Reed and Libby Davis. 

He was preceded in death by his uncle, Jeff Hicks.

A Memorial Service will be conducted at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10 in the chapel of Higgins Funeral Home. 

His family will receive friends from 5-7 p.m. at the funeral home prior to the service.

We invite you to send a message of condolence and view the Davis family guest book at www.higginsfuneral.com.
