Keith Bartlett Davison passed away at the home he shared with his wife Patricia Motta on May 1, 2020. He was born on September 16, 1964 to Gerald and Harriet Davison (both deceased). He is survived by Patricia, his sisters Lynn Babcock and Julie Davison, as well as his brother-in-law Steve Babcock and his nephews Nathan and Keith Babcock.
Keith spent his youth in Silver Spring, MD and was an active soccer player. He loved his family time and home at Bethany Beach, MD. He graduated from Springbrook High School in 1982.
He attended Principia College in Elsah, IL and graduated in June 1986 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. He received the Department’s Henry Merit Paulson award as the most outstanding biology student his senior year. While at Principia, Keith ran Cross Country and enjoyed intramural soccer representing the men of Rackham Court East. He went on to receive another diploma in computer programming from Computer Learning Center, Springfield, VA.
Immediately following college, Keith began his career working as a project manager at Ecology and Environment, Inc. With a success in investing, Keith resigned from E&E job to become an SEC registered financial advisor. For a period, he published his own newsletter, The Davison Investment Outlook. In addition, he ran his own dog walking business for more than 20 years. He remained an avid runner, including completing a Marine Corp Marathon. But he was most devoted to his daily study and practice of Christian Science. He was known for his calm, quiet and loving nature, with a quick wit and passion for dogs.
He began dating his wife Patricia more than 16 years ago. They enjoyed a long courtship and were married on February 14, 2019 by the Justice of the Peace in the Arlington Courthouse, and had a formal ceremony on January 4, 2020.
