Mark Norman Davis was called home by our heavenly father on December 22, 2022 in Fort Stockton, Texas. Mark was born April 9, 1951, to Norman and Hilda “Jean” Davis in New York City, New York. Mark was a cowboy; he spent many years working on ranches. He loved to hunt and break horses, but most of all he had a passion to help those in need. Mark attended Sul Ross University in Alpine, Texas, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in range animal science. Mark also worked for MHMR in Alpine for some time. While working for the MHMR, Mark attended the law enforcement academy and later became the mental health deputy for the Brewster County Sheriff’s Office for many years.
