Visitation will be on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Gorman Funeral Home, 1108 9th Street in Wheatland.
The Celebration of Life for Geno will be at his most loved place, “Open Air” on Friday, September 14, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM. The address is 198 Washington Street in Wheatland.
Geno was born in Wheatland to Harris and Gladys (Preuit) Davis on February 3, 1945. He was raised and educated in Wheatland, graduated from Wheatland High School. He was happily married to Carol Lawson for 24 years (total time together an astounding 44 years). He graduated from Eastern Wyoming College and was a successful business owner for 40 years as a milk distributer and refrigerator and air-conditionimg repairman. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War while serving in the United States Navy.
Geno is preceded in death by his parents, Harris and Gladys; and step-mother, Betty Davis; and his siblings: Mike Davis, Gary Davis, Topper Hollenbeck, Lila Shaw, Harriette West, Karla Davis, and Kathleen Tittle.

The family of Geno wishes to extend our sincere thanks to all of his "extended family" in Platte County and Douglas. Anyone Geno met was family. There are too many to note but please understand he thought highly of so many people and the list is long. We want to specifically note a thank you to Platte County Memorial Hospital for trying to save him, MD Anderson Cancer Center for being successful in making our husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather cancer free, and Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center for making having cancer bearable.
We thank everyone involved for us getting 14 more months with him.
The Gorman Funeral Homes – Platte Chapel of Wheatland are in charge of the arrangements.

I just heard about Geno. My sister, Sylvia, sent me the obituary today. I remember talking with him and hearing about his accident and visiting with you. It was amazing to me that he was doing so well. Then two days later, after Gary and Jenifer's Memorial, you lost him. So sorry. I hope your memories are giving you comfort, along with all your family and friends.

I went to school with Gene and visited with him at Old Grads. Always enjoyed the Davis family. May your memories be a comfort in the days ahead.
