Warren F. Davis was born to the late James Henry Davis and Dora Ellen Davis on Saturday, June 17, 1961 at Johns Hopkins Hospital. A humble servant of God, Warren returned to his heavenly home on Sunday, May 30, 2021. Warren was baptized at a very young age at Southern Baptist Church under the direction of Pastor Nathaniel Higgs. He served on the Junior Usher Board and the choir. His mother describes him as being “devilish in a fun and loving way” during his youth. He loved to dance and go to the playground. Warren enjoyed playing basketball and was known as a ball hog. He was welcoming and friendly and had many life-long friendships. One of his friends, Little Tony, recalls how close they were and the pack they made to be brothers. Warren was often found singing by the corner store with Kenny, Tony, and James. Warren was educated in the Baltimore City Public School System and was a graduating member of the last all male class of Baltimore City College in May of 1979. During his time at City, Warren was an active student. He participated in the Yearbook Club, the Future Business Leaders of America, and the City Choir. Warren was a motivator for his fellow classmates and inspired them to work thoroughly to do their best. Warren was also the life of the party and could often be found at O’dells dancing the night away. Warren even charmed the security guards to get his cousins into the disco clubs with him. After graduating, Warren began working at Montebello State Hospital in the maintenance department. He was a true handy man and could fix any almost anything. His career took him to the Metropolitan of Baltimore Apartments where he spent seven years. Warren was adored by all his residents, but had a special bond with two residents who considered him a son. Following his time at the Metropolitan, Warren became the Assistant Manager of Maintenance at Morningside Apartments and Townhomes. True to his character and demeanor, he was also loved by his residents and coworkers. He loved his job and worked long hours to ensure all necessary work was completed. Warren was a great mentor to his employees and taught them the tricks of the trade to improve their skills. Warren was dedicated and even received calls after hours to assist his coworkers. On October 16, 1985, Warren was blessed to become the father of Dominic Warren Davis, his first-born son. He met the love of his life, Charlene Caldwell in 1988. Her sister, Jean Morgan, set them up on a blind date and the two became inseparable. Warren caught Charlene’s eyes with his fashionable style and gold tooth. From that on, Warren welcomed Charlene and her son, Darryl into his life. They became a family and Warren became a father to Darryl. Charlene and Warren got married on July 22, 1989. They enjoyed over 32 years of love, happiness, and blessings. Warren and Charlene were devoted to each other as much as their devotion to seafood. Warren and Charlene would travel to the ends of the earth for the heaviest crabs in Baltimore. Warren would do anything to see Charlene smile. He was committed to making Charlene’s dreams come true. Last year, he told her to take the year off to complete her Nursing degree. Charlene graduated in December of 2020 and Warren adopted the new phrase, “Real Men Marry Nurses”. Warren and Darryl had a loving relationship and special bond. Warren accepted Darryl as his own and they adopted each other as father and son. Warren taught Darryl how to play all sports, how to drive a car, and become the man that he is today. Darryl was low key Warren’s favorite barber as he spoke proudly of the businessman he son grew to be. Their baby girl, Charnae, was born in October of 1991 and his world forever changed. Warren was officially a “Girl Dad” and made sure his baby girl wanted for nothing. Warren used to hold and guard Charnae like a China doll. Warren and Charnae shared many dances together, but one of their favorite things they loved to do was sing together. Often, they would find themselves singing and harmonizing around the house. Warren was always protective of his baby girl. He always made sure that she was not too far out of his sight─ even in her adult years. Warren pushed Charnae to fulfill her wildest dreams and greatest desires. Their bond was extraordinary and Charnae will forever be Daddy’s little girl. Life took the Davis family on an unforgettable journey. They enjoyed many vacations, celebrations, and most importantly─ cookouts. Warren loved cookouts and cooking on the grill. He loved to be the host of family celebrations and made sure everyone left with a full stomach and great memories. Warren was a servant of God and a dedicated member of Southern Baptist Church. He loved to sing and worship and would to travel to all three locations under the leadership of Bishop Donte L. Hickman. Warren would wait in anticipation for music to be sent out for Sunday services. He would practice and rehearse all week from the time he woke up until the time he fell asleep. Often time while singing, Warren would be nervous but he knew his calling and gift was to sing praises to God. Outside of singing on the choir, Warren would assist in any capacity that he was needed to support his church ministry. He often carpooled members to different locations to ensure they were able to serve as well. Warren made sure his whole family was active in church. On Sunday mornings, he would wake up the household and say, “If you sleeping in my house, you going to church!” Warren was always proud to serve under Bishop Hickman. It would always bring him joy to hear the Bishop’s sermons. Warren often talked about his ministry outside of church. He would speak about God to anybody, anyplace, and anytime. Warren would even sing loudly while shopping the market, shopping in the mall, or simply pumping his gas. If it’s one thing that we know, Warren loved to serve God and ensured his lived his life with purpose. Family was of utmost importance to Warren and the love that he showed can never be measured. Warren’s heart expanded on July 23, 2005 when his first-born grandson, JR was born. JR was the apple of his Pop Pop’s eyes. The two shared an unbreakable bond and JR could do no wrong. Pop and Pop and Ma-Ma’s house became his saving grace. Just when he thought his heart couldn’t expand anymore, he was blessed to have two granddaughters, Raven and Dominique. On August 13, 2010, his beloved granddaughter, Madison was born. Pop Pop and Madison had a unique and entertaining relationship. They would crack jokes on each other, eat snacks, and watch TV all day long. She brought sassy spunk to Warren’s life. Warren become a Pop Pop again on October 7, 2014 to Laila whose energy pushed and motivated him to build all the dollhouses, kitchen sets, and whatever else she needed and wanted. London soon joined the Davis family on October 1, 2016 and just like her middle name, London became the star of Warren’s world. London would often FaceTime her Pop Pop and melt his heart. Right before Christmas of 2020, Warren was blessed to know that his lucky number seven would be born in August of 2021. Warren was thrilled that his baby girl was having a baby boy, Ezra Christopher.
