Christopher Davidson

On August 12, 2011 we all lost a great friend.

37-year-old Christopher Davidson was killed Friday morning August 12, 2011 when a driver struck him with their vehicle and kept going. After being hit, Chris rode his bike to his girlfriend's house and died in her arms.

He was an avid outdoorsman, loved skateboarding, cycling and snowboarding. He was a true fan of the Indianapolis Colts and the Memphis Grizzlies. He leaves his girlfriend, Carri Dodge; daughter, Devyn Edwards; parents, Don and Thelma Davidson of Memphis; grandmother, Gladys Fry of Henderson, TN; brothers, Donald Davidson Jr., Thomas Davidson, Steven Davidson, Bob Schaffer, all of Memphis; numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

Chris' viewing was held Tuesday, August 16 at Memorial Park Funeral Home. His funeral service was conducted Wednesday, August 17 at Memorial Park Cemetery where Chris was laid to rest. We will miss him dearly.
