The son of Squire and Julia (nee Baker) Davidson was born on October 27, 1938, in Oneida, Kentucky. He married Eileen Wilson and they raised three children.
Ray enjoyed being a truck driver for the Batesville Casket Company through the years until he retired. He attended the Batesville Church on Fire. Those who knew Ray knew he was an avid UK fan and a tolerated IU fan.
He enjoyed spending time outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, golfing or sitting out on his front porch. Ray loved being around his family and friends. His grandkids meant everything to him and he was really excited about becoming a great-grandpa. He liked being an uncle as well, always lovingly harassing his nephews and nieces. Ray will be missed dearly by all.
He is survived by his daughters, Julia Schmidt (Rob) and Jamie Hertel (Matt) of Batesville; son Alvin Davidson (Richelle) of Batesville; grandchildren Austin Davidson (Maranda Ruggles), Jaylon Hilshorst (Sarah Johann) and Katraca Davidson; new great-grandson Bennett Davidson; along with his sister, Nola Dwenger of Hamburg; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by his brother, Squire Davidson Jr.; and sister Beatrice Hensley.
