George E. Davey, 87 years of age, passed away on April 3, 2021 after several months of declining health. Beloved husband of Ruth (Hoeg) Davey, son of the late Frank & Lillian Davey of Dedham, MA. Father of Jonathan Davey & wife Beth Billings of Arlington MA., Russell Davey & his partner Karolina Reed of Attleboro, MA. and the late Carl Eric Davey of Holbrook, much loved grandfather of William (Billy) Davey & Catherine (Cat) Davey of Arlington, MA. Also leaves behind his Bunny, Peanut, who he loved dearly & was able to visit with him on April 2., Every morning would share his daily banana with her. Also survived by his sister Gail Bickel & husband Ron & their sons Wayne, Douglas & Scott of Michigan, all of Michigan. Brother of the late Arthur Davey of South Carolina and uncle to his children Glenn Davey of NJ and Cindy Taylor of GA. Dear brother-in-law of Natalie & Arthur Lively of NH, Linda & Harold Samways of FL, the late Susan & Floyd Samways of MA. Uncle to many nieces & nephews.

Proud U.S. Army Veteran serving with the Atomic Energy Commission. George was a self-employed Master Electrician who took care of the electrical needs of many Holbrook residents. He was also the Wiring Inspector for Holbrook and alternate inspector for Randolph & Avon.

He was the Past President of the Holbrook Rotary Club, member of the Winthrop Congregational Church, Holbrook and was in variety shows the church put on. He participated with the Troop 13 Cub Scout & Boys Scouts. He took them on several Boy Scout jamborees in an old school bus he purchased.

George loved traveling and cruising with his wife Ruth. His last trip was to South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore with Jonathan, Beth, Billy & Cat.

Every evening he would go to Highland Plaza to buy a lottery ticket – never won much, and he would travel around the building scolding the kids hanging out back. They called him the Security Man. He loved gardening & in his declining years took to putting the plants in giant black pots & told people he was a “pot” farmer – some people asked to buy his “pot”.
George was proud that his ancestors came over on the Mayflower 400 yrs ago.

He was a great husband, father & grandfather & will be greatly missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Due to the Covid crisis the funeral will be private and burial will be at a later date. Visiting hours will be Sunday, April 18th from 1-3pm at Hurley Funeral Home, 127 South Franklin St. (Rt. 37), Holbrook, MA. Masks must be worn.
In lieu of flowers, gift cards of not more than $45 can be sent to Lt. John Holland, Holbrook Fire Department, South Franklin St., Holbrook, MA 02343 to show our appreciation for the loving & gentle care they gave us both during our many times of need of their services.
