Eileen Davidson: I’m Here with a Very Heavy Heart

Eileen shares some painful news and has a request for those who read her blog.

I’m here with a very heavy heart to share the news of another beloved family member passing away. Sadly, my eldest brother, John “Jack” Davidson, left us suddenly last week at the age of 69.

My big brother was a brilliant man. He graduated Cum Laude with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics from St. Mary’s College. A proud Vietnam veteran, he served our country as an air traffic controller during his deployment. He loved old cars and considered himself a “muscle car aficionado.” He was heavily involved in all kinds of athletics, especially martial arts. At the age of 56, he received his black belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate. John had a wicked sense of humor and a great love for his family.

He was the father of two amazing people, my nephew Johnny and my niece Danielle. He had seven grandchildren, Justin, Brendan, Emma, Adara, Kaitlyn, Noah, and Adam. He was lucky enough to meet his great grandchild, Aellyn, last year. He also leaves behind a loving extended family, a network of friends, and members of his community, who all share in the grief of losing him.

I’ll be back next week to blog. In the mean time, in honor of my brother, I ask whoever reads this to take a minute to remind someone important to you that you love them.
