URBANA, IL - Glenn J. Davis, 35, recently of Urbana, Illinois and previously of Mokena, Illinois died suddenly on November 1, 2020 in St. Louis, Missouri. He was surrounded by his parents and his brother Lee as he passed and made the ultimate gift of life when he chose to be an organ donor upon his death.
Glenn was born April 2, 1985 to Melanie and James Williamson in Seminole County, Florida. As an infant, he and his two brothers came to live with his maternal aunt, Margaret (Peg) Davis and her husband Joe, and spent his entire life as their son. He is survived by his parents, Joe and Peg Davis (nee Reasor), his siblings Cheryl O’Leary, Jeff (Jodi), Jana, Carrie (Deepak) Chandwani, Lee (Serenity), and Zach, his maternal aunts, as well as many nieces and nephews and extended family members.
He attended Lincoln-Way East High School where he earned his degree in 2003. As a child, he would flash a wide toothy grin as he got into mischief, often with Lee and Zach in tow, and leave a trail of cheese or cheesy fingerprints along his path. Usually sporting a baseball cap and a hooded sweatshirt, he was fiercely loyal to his friends and loved hanging out, listening to music, or going on road trips, to the ocean preferably. He was a talented artist, a gifted writer, and he loved animals.
A private memorial to honor his life will be held by his family. Condolences may be left on this website or mailed in care of Adams Funeral Chapel at 2330 Shawnee Drive, Charleston, IL 61920.
Glenn was so grateful for the help he received when it was needed. To honor his memory, he would want us all to do that for others – hug someone, buy their groceries, give them an opportunity. If you’d like to make a donation in his honor, contact Mid-America Transplant of St Louis at midamericatransplant.org or to any charity of your choice.
