Jack Davia

August 8, 1958 — February 1, 2023


Jack VerWayne (Paps) Davia, Jr., 64, of Jewett, passed in his home with his wife of 33 years by his side on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. He was born August 8, 1958 in Wheeling, West Virginia son of the late Jack V. and A. Jean Ankrom Davia, Sr..

Jack was a 1976 graduate of Cadiz High School and retired from Aleris in 2020. Jack enjoyed mowing for Kimble Companies, camping with his wife and his three spoiled dogs and face timing with his grandbabies.

Jack will be remembered for his witty comebacks and off-kilter jokes. In true fashion, he passed after fulfilling a promise to his daughter.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Robert Snyder.

Jack leaves behind his wife Janet Snyder Davia, daughter Jaclyn Davia-Burns, son-in-law Colin Burns, and two grandchildren: Lylah (1) and Liam (1 month), two brothers: Jody (Sheryl) Davia and Jamie (Laurie) Davia, mother-in-law: Shirley Snyder, three brothers-in-law: Mike (Cindy) Snyder, Mark (Dawn) Snyder, and Brian (Kelly) Snyder, seven sisters-in-law: Barbara (Russ) Ossman, Robin (John) Miles, Sarah Snyder, Abbie (Scott) English, Ruth (Dave) Wickliff, Patty (Scott) Birney, and Kathy (Keith) Kimble, aunt, uncle and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, a college scholarship fund is being established for his grandchildren. Send donations to: Jaclyn Davia-Burns, 2291 Myron Avenue, Newton Falls, Ohio 44444.
