Thaddeus Charles Davis departed this life peacefully when God called him home on October 6, 2020 at the age of 87. He was born December 31, 1932 in Sumter, South Carolina to the late Luther and Sophia Davis. The Davis family moved to Pittsburgh where he graduated from Westinghouse High School in 1950. He met and married the love of his life, Cassandra, in 1957 and had three daughters, Pamela, Christine and Michelle.
Thaddeus was lovingly known as “Tiny” to friends and family. He served in the Army during the Korean War and was honorably discharged in 1955. He was a hard worker who held various positions but the one that he loved and excelled in was his 30-year career as a United States Postal Worker. He garnered many accolades and was described as “easy-going always with a smile and a joke” in the Mt. Washington Tribune article detailing his retirement in 1992. Although he took pride in his work, he cherished his family above all and shared his love of plants and home improvement. He taught his daughters the art of many sports including bocci, badminton and bumper pool. He was never above sledding down a hill or playing a game of hopscotch with his girls and he always enjoyed a good cigar.
Thaddeus joined his wife Cassandra in heaven and leaves cherished memories to his daughters, Pamela Jenkins (Darrell), Christine Sales and Michelle Evins. He was the last surviving sibling of 3 brothers Luther Davis (deceased), Clarence Davis (deceased), Ernest Davis (deceased); and two sisters Lila Mott (deceased) and Gloria Hopkins (deceased). He is remembered by grandchildren Brandie Jenkins, Denise Jenkins, Cassandra Evins (deceased), Thaddeus Evins, Stephen Sales, Jr., Jessica Sales, and great grandchildren T’Naysha, Thaddeus Charles, Tobias, Mia, Maya, Macie and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
