Sponsored obituary: Robin Gary Davidson

Robin Gary Davidson was born in Merced, CA on April 22nd, 1960. He died on February 1st, 2006 at his home in White Cloud, AZ.

He was the last of 5 children born to Robert Horace Davidson and Lona Louise Davidson. In 1966 Robert moved his family to San Jose where Rob spent his childhood. Rob attended Pioneer High School. In 1977 Rob moved to the Yosemite Valley to work. In 1980 Rob moved again to Grass Valley, CA. While there Rob developed a talent for chainsaw carving. Some of his carvings can be seen scattered around the north state, from the ‘Mountain Man’ in Weott, to the ‘Miner’ in Rough & Ready and many others. While in the Midwest, Rob had a daughter, Abigail 20. In 1990 Rob married his sweetheart, Teri. Shortly thereafter they had a son, Nicolas, 16. Soon after, they moved to Garberville where Rob used his carving skills while working at ‘The Legend of Bigfoot’ near Richardson Grove to support his family. Rob then moved back to Grass Valley where he helped raise his son. Unable to find steady work, Rob moved to Benson, AZ, where he spent his last few years relishing the company of his brothers Ronald Bernard and Michael Ross, playing the harmonica and working his magic on the wood. Rob also has another brother Richard Glenn in Meridian ID, a sister Valerie Marlene in Vallecito, CA, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rob was a fine man, with a big heart, a good friend to many, and loved by all. He will be missed.
