Cummings and Rubert F. Davis, graduated from IUPUI with a degree in Environmental Science and worked as Director, Wastewater Treatment Division for Gurtler Industries, Inc.
Survived by his mother, his spouse of 26 years, Phyllis (Futch) Davis, his children Lindsee (Will) Stewart and Sarah (Javier) Sanchez, siblings Patty (Gerard) Thibault, Robert (Ashley) Davis, and Noah Davis, in-laws Ernest, Yvonne, and Mary Futch as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He is pre-deceased by his father, brother John Davis, and brother-in-law Larry Futch.
On October 12, 1991 he married Phyllis, Executive Director of the Amelia Island Museum of History whom he met on a blind date. They were best friends and looked forward to a life time together which was cut way too short.
His daughters, Lindsee, born December 10, 1988 and Sarah, born February 13, 1990, were his pride and joy as were his two grandsons, Jude and Max.
Stuart was a devoted father and loving husband. He was a complex man who loved his family deeply and was a stalwart, passionate, loyal defender of those he loved. He was the type of man who wore his heart on his sleeve and you were never in doubt of where he stood on any topic. He enjoyed many hobbies that involved building and creation such as model building, restoring radios, woodworking, and gardening. He also deeply enjoyed games of all types and was a cinema addict. One of his favorite past times was walking on the beach alone or with family. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family and devoted dogs, Luis, Yoda, and all who knew him.
Services will be at 11:00 am on Friday, May 18, 2018 in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard.
