"DJ" Obituary

David Joshua "DJ" Davis, 45, of Push Root Road, Burlington, WV, died Saturday, May 18, 2024 at WVU Medicine Potomac Valley Hospital, Keyser, WV.


Born on October 31, 1978 in Oakland, MD, he was a son of Robin D. (Martin) Davis Edwards Smearman of Friendsville, MD and the late Stanley Lee Davis. He also was preceded in death by a stepfather, Jeff Edwards, his maternal grandparents, Emory and Bunnie Martin; his father-in-law, Dalton Charles "Red" Charlton and his dearly loved canine companion, "Tater."


Mr. Davis was a 1997 graduate of Fort Hill High School and the Allegany County Career Center. DJ had a vast knowledge when it came to automotive repair and worked at various garages during his lifetime. He was a "jack of all trades," or he at least gave it his best until his health declined. For many years as his sons were growing up, he volunteered with both Pack 83 and Troop 83 of the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts in Burlington and also the Klover Krusaders 4-H. He loved coloring pictures, traveling and spending time with his family and he has left behind many friends he met over the years, never meeting a stranger that he didn't make as a friend. The neighborhood kids all called him Dad.


Surviving, in addition to his his mother is his stepfather, David W. Smearman, Sr.; the love of his life, Michelle Charlton Davey; three sons, Korben Bergmann of Verona, Wisconsin, Nelson Dalton Creed Davey and Cash Remington Hyder Davey, both of Burlington; a grandson, Hezekiah Hyder Charles Davey and one "on the way." Also surviving are three sisters, Tammy Kile and husband Roger of Rawlings, MD, Elizabeth Jean Arbogast of Cresaptown, MD and Cathy Jo Lindt and husband Dennis of Cumberland, MD; two stepbrothers, David Smearman, Jr. and wife Jessica of Grantsville, MD and Henry Smearman and wife Elizabeth of Friendsville; his mother-in-law, Cynthia Elaine Charlton of Burlington; and two uncles, Melvin Martin and wife Kim of Lonaconing, MD and Marvin Martin and wife Kim of Barton, MD.


Friends will be received at the Smith Funeral Home, Keyser Chapel, on Wednesday, May 22, 2024 from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m.


A funeral service will be conducted at the Smith Funeral Home, Keyser Chapel, on Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Randy Shoemaker officiating.


Interment will be in the Charlton-Whipp Cemetery, Burlington.


The family would like to thank all of the medical professionals and emergency staff involved in his care over the past years as well as the staff and "his girls" who he loved at Davita Renal Services. The family also requests that memorial contributions be directed to the Smith Funeral Home, 85 S. Main Street Keyser, WV 26726 to assist in defraying funeral expenses.
