CANFIELD - Dr. Thomas G. Davison, 63, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015.

He was born March 10, 1952, in Youngstown, the son of the late Robert O. and Ruth Brown Davison.

Tom was a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School Class of 1970 and earned his bachelors degree from Youngstown State University. He then attended dental school at The Ohio State University and returned to the Youngstown area to set up his private dental practice in Boardman in 1980 until his retirement this year.

He also served as the dental director at Copeland Oaks Crandall Medical Center in Sebring for the last 9 years.

Dr. Tom was an active member of the Boardman Rotary, serving as their president from 2000-01, and serving for many years on the Youth Exchange committee.

Tom had many passions, but especially for traveling, snow skiing, scuba diving, stained glass art, the Canfield Fair, and his beloved Ohio State Buckeyes football team.

He is survived by his wife, Jennifer Keich Davison, whom he married Dec. 18, 1992; four beautiful children, daughter Dr. Laura Davison of Palo Alto, Calif., and sons Zack, Sam and Alex, all at home; his sister, Janet (Gerry) Rich, of Westerville; nephews, Patrick Cullenen of Denver, Colo., and Kevin Cullenen of Columbus; many close cousins, former staff members and many longtime patients.

Tom also had several very special lifelong friends who were more like brothers, Dr. Nick Agnesi, Dr. Jeffery Cohen, Dr. Ted Cubbison, Michael Palagano, Esq. and Bob Moore -- all WWHS Class of 1970 -- and Joe Sullivan, Youngstown State University.

Besides his parents, Tom was preceded in death by a brother, James R. Davison.
