Jeff Davis passes away
Down East Boys alumnus Jeff Davis passed away yesterday after an eleven-year-long battle with brain cancer. He was a member in the early ’90s, right around the time the Down East Boys picked up their Horizon Group of the Year honor in the 1990 Singing News Fan Awards.
Greg Bentley, who served alongside Davis in that Down East Boys lineup, posted the following tribute on his Facebook page yesterday morning:
Sitting here running sound for Jubilee preaching this morning at TBC [Trinity Baptist Church, Asheville, NC]. Wonderful encouraging words. Then I get the news that one of my former singing partners with The Down East Boys, Jeff Davis lost his battle with a brain tumor last night. Evangelist Tom Gilliam is preaching right now about running the race and keeping the faith. I can rejoice to know that Jeff has finished his race and has now crossed the Victory Line! May God comfort Cindy and the rest of the family!
