Bobby Allen Davis, 57, of Henrico County died November 5, 2021 surrounded by loved ones. Allen, as he was known, was born January 20, 1964 in Richmond, VA.
“We’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time!” Allen Davis was an original with a larger than life personality who lived by that mantra. An entertainer at heart, Allen was quick with a one-liner or carefully crafted story that got funnier each time he told it. After a career that began with helping others as a volunteer firefighter in Hanover, Allen spent the better part of his adult life as a successful restauranteur. He created comfortable spaces where everyone felt welcome. He knew what he liked – good food, great music and icy cold drinks. He passionately shared those things – first at the Dugout, then Shenanigans Eatery and Pub and finally at Eat 33.
A loving husband, Allen leaves behind his wife of 25 years, Joan. He is also survived by a son, Garrett Davis; sister Nina Rowe (husband Bryan); and countless friends especially those he shared office space with at Buddy’s.
A memorial gathering will be held from 5 to 8 pm Thursday, November 18 at Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Pkwy, Richmond, VA 23294. The family will receive friends from 1 to 2 pm Friday, November 19 with a memorial service to follow at 2 pm at St. Michaels Catholic Church in Glen Allen followed by a reception.
