TULSA — Monday afternoon, I attended Steve Davis’ funeral at the First Baptist Church in Tulsa.
The funeral was beautiful and each speaker was fantastic; none, though, touched Bo Davis’ moving tribute to his father.
I’ve transcribed Bo’s entire tribute here:
On behalf of the family I’d like to say thank you. Your prayers, love and support have been instrumental in getting us through this extremely difficult time.
I’ve read too many news articles to count over the last week that talk about and celebrate the life of my father. And you don’t have to search for very long before you stumble across the word “legend.” And I agree with that label. He probably hates it, but I agree with it.
However, the context in which “legend” was used is not how I would apply the term when discussing my dad. Because, most often the term “legend” was used in conjunction with his heroics on the football field. But I never saw him play a down. Or with his 18-year broadcasting career, I can’t remember a single game he called. Or perhaps the term “legend” was applied to his uncanny ability to lead people to Christ, with his undeniable gifts as a Baptist preacher. And yet, I never saw him perform a single sermon.
