James Davall

Obituary of James Glenn Davall

James Glenn "Big Jim" Davall, passed away on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 just days away from his 76th birthday.

He was born January 15, 1946 in Nicholson, PA. Originally from South Gibson, PA, James moved to California with his family in 1964 where his father pursued agriculture. He graduated from Palm Springs High School in 1967 where he made plenty of lifelong friends. He worked alongside his father and brother on their family farm until he met the love of his life in the summer of 1972. It took only two months for the lovebirds to get married in Cathedral City, California.

He moved his family back to Pennsylvania in 1995 when his own father passed. Throughout the years he worked many odd jobs, but his lifelong passion was always agriculture. There wasn't a moment where he wasn't keeping track of time and tinkering with his tractors. Old antique watches and farm animals were something that filled his heart with joy when he wasn't haying the fields for that season. James will be remembered for how closely he kept his friends and family.

James is survived by his wife of 49 years, Sharon Ann Davall; his children: Angela Rose Davall and companion, Dean A. Pratt, Dawn Marie Mankins and husband, Berry, James Kenneth Davall and companion, Gail Faux, Evelyn Patricia Davall and companion, John Richardson, Joy Elaine Davall, Kenneth John Davall and wife, Christy and William Joseph Davall; eleven grandchildren; siblings: Everett Kenneth Davall, Sandra Joyce Agnew, Delores Joanne Davall, Jewel Evelyn Davall, Cynthia Lee Ackley and Mabel Kay Davall; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents: Kenneth John Davall and Helen Ruth Shaw Davall; and his brother: Robert Fred Davall.
