Pastor Harold Davidson

Pastor Harold Davidson, 91, of Cody, died at Spirit Mountain  Hospice House on Aug. 13, 2019. 

Harold was born in Bowling Green, Ohio on Oct. 20, 1927 to Earl and Dorothy Davidson. He served in the Navy during the end of World War II and then moved to the Cody area to begin ranching in 1950. 

Shortly after moving to Cody, he met Winnifred, whom he married, and they adopted two children, Virginia (Gina) Buhrow and Norman Davidson. The family made their home in Cody. 

In 1977, Harold married Edith Nelson, and they were heavily involved in church work, discipling others, and hospitably sharing the love of Jesus with those they met. In 2013, Harold and Edith, in conjunction with Bible Baptist Theological Seminary of Cromwell, Conn., started Bible Baptist Church of Cody in their home.

Harold’s greatest joy was the Word of God, and he was constantly looking for chances to teach and share with others the Truths that God had showed him in the Bible.

Harold was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Clifford (Chip) Davidson and his wife Winnifred. 

He is survived by his precious wife Edith; his brother Ed Davidson; his children Virginia (Scott) Buhrow and Norman (Judy) Davidson; stepchildren Eugene (Anne) Nelson, Byron (Angie) Nelson, Char (Duane) Anderson, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

Funeral services were held at Ballard Funeral Home on Monday, Aug. 19, 2019, with visitation held the hour prior.
