James Walter Davey (Jamie), 81, of Plympton, who proudly served his country in the Navy as a Seabee in the 1950’s, and a proud retiree of Carpenters Union Local #624, passed away on May 4, 2018. Born in Avon son of the late Albert and Mary (Murray) Davey. Brother to the late George Davey of Abington. He leaves his wife Tina (DeLorenzo) Davey, her son Peter DeLorenzo and his wife Sherri of Rehoboth, his nephew George Davey and his wife Thuy of Middleboro, many nieces, and nephews, and his lifelong childhood friend Charles (Hoppy) Hopkins of W. Bridgewater.
Jamie loved being in the woods, and working with wood. He designed and built his home starting with many hours cutting trees, had them trucked to the local mill, gave them a material list, and then trucked the lumber to the site using his 66 Ford F250. He then commenced to building. Jamie, along with Peter, Tina, and some close friends were able to complete the family home and enjoy many years of comfort.
Jamie jumped at the chance to help people and was always willing to share his knowledge with others. He would not hesitate to draw up a set of plans for your shed, garage, or an addition, and offer his assistance.
Jamie was a colorful character with a quick wit and quick with a joke. He used to say he was dragged up in a bilingual household speaking English and profanity, and mastered both.
He was incredibly devoted to his wife Tina and her son Peter.
