James "Jim" Davidson, 85

Mr. James "Jim" Davidson, 85, a native of Hendersonville, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, at 6:46 p.m.

Jim was born to the late Jesse and Gertie Davidson on Aug. 2, 1928. He was the youngest and last remaining sibling of seven brothers and sisters. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and served during the Korean War. He enjoyed the outdoors, reading and most of all, riding his tractor. He will be truly missed. Jim was preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Mary.

Jim is survived by two children: Mike Davidson, Kathy Rhodes and husband, Michael; two grandchildren: Bradley Rhodes and wife, Ernesta, Justin Davidson and wife, Melissa; and two great-grandchildren: Caselyhn and Braeden Rhodes.

The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for him during the past three months. We express special appreciation to the caregivers at Elizabeth House for not only taking good care of him, but also good care of our family.

A graveside funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013, at Pleasant Hill Cemetery. The family will receive friends before and after the services in Jim's home.
