Our Sweet Davis

Our dear, sweet son and brother left us on October 20th. Our hearts are grieving at this tremendous loss for our family. We have included his obituary. We have been overwhelmed with love, support and quiet acts of kindness by so many dear friends and neighbors. For this we will be forever grateful.

Davis Manning Firth, born April 19, 1990 in Redmond, WA, is the son of Mark and Leisa; brother of Brady (Danielle), Janell (Ben Craghead), Lindsey (Jake) Christensen, Camber, and Emily; grandson of Ronald and Marie Firth, Neil and Joan Flinders; uncle, nephew and cousin to many; and friend to all. Throughout his adventurous life he effortlessly mastered countless talents. As a skilled musician, he played bass and guitar with many groups and across many genres, composing songs that could both make you rock and bring you to tears. He found joy in skiing Utah powder and one-upping pros on his skateboard. Davis had a heart of kindness and a contagious smile that brought light and warmth to all who knew him. He found peace on Sunday October 20, 2013, after fighting a vigorous battle against things in life that were difficult and taxing. We are proud of his valiant determination in all of the trials he overcame and the challenges he conquered. Our hearts will continue to feel his generous friendship, courage, and love of nature and mankind as the music of his life plays on. Those same hearts will grieve that he didn’t hike the Pacific Coast Trail, that his mischievous smile won’t be seen, that too few heard his song, and that we can’t tell him again how we have admired his courage through the immense challenges he faced. He will be so deeply missed and loved.
As his family, we thank his friends for their part in his life and thus in ours. We hope they will find peace in knowing that he loves them and that their influence is felt by him and us. We thank friends and family for their love and support. In lieu of flowers, we ask that contributions be made to the Davis Firth Donation account at Zion’s Bank, which will be used for a music scholarship. We will receive friends and family Oct 25, 6-8PM and Oct 26, 9-10:30AM; with funeral service to follow Oct 26, 11AM at the chapel on 325 Lauralin Dr, Logan UT. His burial will take place at the Mendon Cemetery following the service. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at
