Bishop Davies was consecrated for the Diocese of Dallas in 1970.
In 1983 he chose to become Bishop of the Diocese of Fort Worth
when the new diocese was formed. After his official retirement he
was appointed Bishop of the Convocation of American Churches
in Europe. While in that position, he met several times with
Pope John Paul II. Carpentry was his favorite passtime; two
pieces of furniture he crafted are in use at the Diocesan Center.
He made the gavel used at each of our diocesan Conventions. He
was laid to rest with military honors in the cemetery at Church of
the Good Shepherd in Granbury on Oct. 21, 2011.

A service of remembrance and thanksgiving was held Monday
at the Bishop Davies Nursing Center in Hurst.

Read Bishop Iker’s Homily for Bishop Davies.
