He attended Adamson High School where he met the love of his life, patsy Jo Frank. They were married soon after meeting and remained happily married for 53 years until her death in 2000. He always said the day he met her was the luckiest day of his life.
Billy Don was an avid fisherman and Port Aransas was his favorite place in the world. He would drive 400 miles just to fish for one day. Billy Don could fix anything mechanical, so he was a natural fit for his job as field engineer for Hussman Refrigeration. He remained there until his retirement. He was a loving husband, wonderful father, doting grandfather and loyal friend. He always looked for the best in people, and his family and friends were the lucky ones to have had this man in their lives.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Patsy.
He is survived by his son, Billy Don Davidson, Jr.; daughter, Donna Broughton; sister, Evadna Dunn; 5 grandchildren, Stephanie LeMaster, Steven Broughton, Breona Watson, Lindsey Medlock, and Billy Davidson; 11 great-grandchildren, Taylor, Camryn, Riley, Preston, Bailey, Ashton, Brooklynn, Kyleigh, Milla, Reese, and Blake.
