James R. Davis, AKA “Boomer”, 74, of Wingdale, New York passed away on June 4, 2022, at home.  He was the son of Robert H. Davis and Vincenta “Alice” (Markowitz) Davis, and was born in Beacon, New York on March 2, 1948.

Boomer graduated from Arlington High School in 1966.  After graduation, he continued to work on the family dairy farm in Poughquag until 1973.  After the herd dispersal, he was employed by Clint Bruggeman building homes.  He also `enjoyed working on cars in his shop at the farm, playing spoons for friends. He most enjoyed hunting, especially with the many dogs he raised over the years.

He is survived by his daughter, Kristen D. O’Dell, Newburgh, NY; sister Nancy Beaudoin, Rhinebeck, NY; Nieces Tonna O’dell (Lee); Shannon O’Hearn (Jim); Jay Slocum (Katherine); Brandon Beaudoin (Kim); Alicia Beaudoin and Steven Beaudoin.  Also surviving are seven great-nieces and nephews and two great-great nephews. He will be missed by his long-time friend Jerome Dennis Cureton, otherwise known as “Bub”.

He is also survived by his beloved canine companion Danni.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his longtime companion Jeannette Passino and his partner in “mischief” Raymond Beaudoin.

There will be no calling hours.  Internment will be at the convenience of family.

Thank you to John and Debbie Thomes for their kind help during this time.
