Robert J. Davies Jr., 69, of Northumberland, passed away peacefully Sept. 6, 2020, at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
He was born July 23, 1951, a son of the late Dorothy (Boden) and Robert Davies Sr.
Robert was a 1969 graduate of Nether Providence High School. He retired after many years of service as a boilermaker with Philadelphia Local 13. He was a member of St. Pius X Catholic Church in Selinsgrove.
Bob “Rooster” enjoyed running in his younger years and continued daily long walks in more recent years. He also enjoyed reading and feeding the local wildlife, especially the squirrels. His favorite time was spent with family and friends, especially his children and grandchildren. He was a giving person and always willing to lend a helping hand. His tremendous sense of humor will be greatly missed.

He is also survived by one brother and two sisters, Michael Davies of Sunbury, Susan Davies and Janice Davies, both of Milton.
In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by one sister, Deborah Schaffner.
A visitation will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at St. Pius X Catholic Church, Selinsgrove, immediately followed by a Mass of Christian Burial, with Father Tukura Pius Michael O.P. as a celebrant.
