Stuart Ian Davis, widower of Mary M. Davis, passed away from health complications, on October 31, 2019, at his home in Meredith at the age of 80.

Stuart, or Ian, to some, was born February 12, 1939 in the Davis Family farmhouse in Center Harbor, NH, son of Madeline Jenness Davis and Donald Davis.

Stuart spent his childhood years growing up in Lakeport where he graduated from Laconia High School in 1958.

After graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving from 1958 to 1962 and being honorably discharged as a 3rd Class Petty Officer. Stuart continued to serve in the reserves and the National Guard for 6 more years.

Upon completing his enlistment as active duty in the Navy he enrolled at the NH Vocational Technical Institute in Manchester, NH where he received his Associates Degree. Upon completion of his schooling Stuart joined the NH Sheetmetal Union, Local #279 and spent 25 years working union construction projects across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

In 1966, he married Mary Louise McDonald, previously of South Paris, Maine. While residing in Laconia they had two children and moved to Meredith in 1978. Shortly after retiring early, he began working for the City of Laconia and retired completely in 2003, when he became a snowbird, at his wife’s urging, wintering in New Smyrna Beach Florida and summering in Meredith. They were married 47 years until she passed in 2013.

Stuart enjoyed many hobbies and crafts and was involved in the Laconia Lodge of the Elks, Chocorua Lodge of Masons, and the Winnipesaukee Shrine Club as past president. Stuart enjoyed hunting, fishing and snowmobiling in his younger years and lately enjoyed bird watching, riding in his Ford Thunderbird and being driven in his restored Model A.

Stuart was predeceased by his parents, wife, and several brothers and sisters and is survived by his children, Jeffrey Davis and wife Karen, of Sanbornton, NH, Jennifer Davis and husband Jeff LeBlanc, of Hill, NH, his grandchildren Nicholas Davis, of New Hampton, NH, and Rachael Davis of Sanbornton NH, his sister Mary “Mimi” Walker of Laconia, NH, bother Richard Davis and wife Carol of Meredith, NH, and many nieces and nephews. He will be missed by his beloved kitty, Mrs. G!

Calling hours will be held from 10 AM to 11:30 with a Celebration of Stuart’s Life starting at 11:30 on Saturday, November 16 at the Mayhew Funeral Home, 204 D.W. Highway, Meredith, NH with a private burial to occur at a future date. Memorial donations in his memory may be made to the NH Humane Society.

Dear Jen and Jeff,
I’m heartbroken to hear of your fathers passing. He was such a gentle giant of a man and I’m thankful for the friendship we shared in Florida. My love and condolences to all of you and family.
