KIA May 21, 2007
Memorial Page Established by- Taryn Davis
In Honor Of Cpl. Michael W. Davis
“Love is stronger than death even though it can't
stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't
separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the
end, life is stronger than death.”
This memorial website was created to remember my goregous, loving
husband Michael W. Davis. Michael was a San Marcos High School graduate who
later went on to attend Texas State University. Two years into college,
after the events of 9/11, Michael decided to join the United States
Army. He chose to specialize in becoming a Combat Engineer at Fort
Leonard Wood, Mo.
During his graduation there, he excelled in all aspects of training
leading him to receive the Commanding General's Award for Military
Excellence - an award that is set aside for only the most outstanding soldier.
He then went on to Fort Benning, Ga. for training in becoming an
Airborne Sapper. He received his wings and moved to Fort Richardson, Alaska.
In December 2005, Michael came home to marry his love, Taryn. They
resided in Alaska until October 2006 when Michael received his orders to
serve in Baghdad, Iraq. Before leaving, he received the Army Achievement
Medal for his excellence during pre-deployment training.
Michael had a passion for life and he put that forward into his work.
He never left any project unfinished and he always did it to the best of
The honored, who were able to have met Michael, would tell you his
smile lit up a room. His love for his wife was one which very few will ever
experience and she paid it back double-fold.
On May 21, 2007, Michael, who's mission in Iraq was road clearance
operations, had his vehicle hit multiple times by IEDs. He was looked up to
in his unit as a leader, someone all could trust, someone all his
fellow soldiers miss tremendously. He received the Bronze Star Medal, the
Purple heart, the Combat Action Badge and the Army Good Conduct Medal
during his duty for our country.
The love, compassion, and stamina he had is one, that to this day, will
surpass most men. He put everyone first and would want his fellow
soldiers to lead on. He was planning on finishing his degree in engineering
after his time of service was over. He and his wife had plans of
traveling the world together, swimming with sharks and starting a gorgeous
He also leaves behind his mother Sonya Davis Kennedy; father Myron
Warner Davis; sisters Natalie Davis and Jessica Bell; brother-in-law
Freeman Bell and beloved nephew Grayson "lil Mikey" Bell.
I will miss his laughter, smile, and selfless compassion, and the
world should know what a loss they are at with the passing of this
courageous, wonderful and loving soul.

I know I may have not got the honor of knowing you. Hearing your wifes story about you brought me to tears.
How you can tell someone you love them and then hours later find out that you would never get the chance to
see them again. I can only imagine the pain your wife may have endure. But you will always be in our hearts
and will always be remembered as a hero in our eyes. You sacraficed your life for our country and all that we
stand for and for that you widowed your wife and sacraficed much. On this very special day I would like to
honor you Michael W. Davis for all that you have done for our nation you will forever be remembered not just
on memorial day but everyday. And to you taryn I to know what its like to lose the one you love to war. Just
know that he's smiling down watching over you and god bless you and your family.

I can still remember Mikey as a little lanky boy who had the biggest smile of anyone I knew. I was proud to
work with his Dad, know his Mom and sisters, and I can't tell you how proud I am of him serving our country
and believing in what he was doing. God Bless you Mikey and you will always be my hero. Kaye Sass
