Taimar J.R. Davis

September 17, 1985 ~ May 13, 2020 (age 34)


Taimar Jarreau Richard Davis of Browns Mills, New Jersey departed this earthly life and gained his heavenly wings on May 13, 2020. He was born September 17, 1985 to James and Ivy Davis in Voorhees, New Jersey. He attended Pemberton High School and received his high school diploma from Camden County Community College. Taimar was a hard worker and had various employment. Growing up he was a big support to his community: delivering gifts during the holidays, lawn services and teaching children how to care for and ride horses with his father. 

Taimar affectionately known as “Tai” or “Mack” was a fun, loving person with a charismatic smile and a great sense of humor. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, making everyone laugh and reading poetry by his favorite Author, Langston Hughes. No matter what he did in the streets he always came back to his roots. He had a special love for children and would always tell them to strive for better and to not make the same mistakes he had made. He knew regardless of his mistakes he was loved by his family. His Mom always said, “It doesn’t matter if you’re a good child or bad child, you’re still my child and I’ll always love you”, and he understood what that meant. He was a great Son, Brother, Grandson, Uncle and friend and he will live on in our hearts forever.

He is preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Rinzo Jenkins and his brother Braden “Harlem” Smith of The Musketeers.
