Steve Davis was known for his excellence as an Oklahoma quarterback. Football was important to the Tulsa resident.
But Davis’ faith was his pinnacle.
“He was in class (Sunday) and we were talking about something and Steve just shared how important it was for him to be a Christian,” said Jean Barrett, Davis’ Sunday School teacher at Tulsa’s First Baptist Church. “It meant the world to him.”
Davis died in a plane crash on Sunday, his brother Joe Davis confirmed to the Tulsa World on Monday morning. Steve Davis was onboard a Beechcraft Premier I twin-jet that departed Jones Riverside Airport and crashed in a residential area near South Bend (Ind.) Regional Airport.
