2 Didn't have to walk too far, in between scenes, while doing Dallas (1978), prior to suffering his own health problems, but was determined to keep working, until he was unable to. He had to leave the show, when the cast (and himself) knew that he was dying in 1981 (though he almost appeared in every episode of the 1980-81 season).
3 For many years, Davis suffered a series of migraine headaches, which led to his terminal brain cancer that eventually claimed his life.
4 He was the son of Lucian Davis (1878-1954) and Ethyl Offutt Davis (1890-1984). They are buried in Camden Point Cemetery, Camden Point, Platte County, Missouri.
