Pastor Blaine Davis was called home on March 6, 2023. Affectionately loved by many, Blaine was born the fourth of eight children on August 11, 1961, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Evangelist Lennett Davis and the late William “Billy” Davis. Blaine was educated in the Philadelphia Public School System, graduating from Thomas Edison High School in 1979.
From an early age, Blaine developed a love for the Lord which blossomed into a lifelong relationship. He would often joke about how much time they spent at his childhood church Rehoboth Temple C.O.G.I.C. It was there where he began serving the Lord through playing the drums, ushering, being the Adjutant to Bishop George A. Williams, and was eventually ordained as a Deacon. At Rehoboth is where he met his love, Sandra Kay Hannah. The couple was married on June 16, 1984. To this union was born three beautiful daughters, Joy Marlena, Christina LaToy, and La Kaya Breóna.
Pastor Davis loved to serve God and people which continued when he joined Canaan Church of Pentecost under the late Bishop James Mobley, renamed as Faith and Love Center Pentecostal Church (FLCC) under Bishop Harry W. Pendleton, Sr. Under Bishop Mobley, Blaine was ordained as an Elder. Later under Bishop Pendleton, he was installed as Assistant Pastor of FLCC.
Pastor Davis was very instrumental in ministry. Throughout his tenure, he served as a dedicated van driver, Overseeing Pastor of the Greeters’, Transportation, and Media Ministries. He was a teacher of Vacation Bible and Sunday School. Under the United Churches Fellowship, he was there from the inception. He assisted and facilitated with many tasks.
Although Blaine wore many hats, he mostly enjoyed being supportive to his wife and three daughters in all their endeavors. He touched many people with his infectious personality, caring heart, and genuine love. He often quoted the words of his favorite scripture, John 13:35 KJV, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
Blaine will be greatly missed by many. He was preceded in death by his father, two grandchildren: Blaine Allen and Zoey Kay, and niece, Anitra “Neet Neet” Thomas. He leaves behind his wife of almost 39 years, “Sandy”, his daughters: Joy Edwards (Michael), Christina Muir (Patrick), La Kaya, one adorable grandson, Patrick “PJ” Muir, Jr., two bonus grandchildren: Michael Fidel and Autumn Paige, three godchildren: Myrtice, Allen Michael, and Candace. Also remaining to cherish his memory is his mother-in-law Shirley Hannah, his mother Lennett Davis and siblings: Bernard Davis, Stephanie Thomas, Lennette Davis, Brian Davis, Benita Davis, Sabrina Davis-Miller (Gary), Damon Davis (Bernadette), brother-in-law, Stephen Hannah, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
