Davy Lee Thacker, Sr.

Davy Lee Thacker, Sr. age 80 of Afton died Saturday April 9, 2022  at the Waynesboro Manor in Waynesboro, Virginia. 

Davy was born February 15, 1942 in Nelson County (Shipman) a son of the late Leland D. Thacker and Helen F. Johnson Thacker.

Besides his parents he was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Louise Broussard Thacker in 2006; two sons; Hank S. Thacker and Edward Dugas and one sister; Betty T. Hampton.

Davy was a member of the Methodist faith.  He was a United States Marine Veteran and retired after 30 years of service as a welder with Acme Visual Records.  He was an avid History buff with a memory up and until his death. Was a lover of Country music and nothing more exciting to him than Nascar as he loved his racing and nothing more exciting than speeding down the open highways on his motorcycle . He sat a record in Louisiana by receiving more speeding tickets in the state than any other individual and as he would say "AINT THAT SOMETHING".

Davy is survived by his companion, Joyce Hatchett of Crozet; three sons; Davy Lee Thacker, Jr. of Lake Charles, Louisiana, John W. Thacker of Ragley, Louisiana and Jeffrey W. Thacker of Sebastian, Florida; two daughters; Judy A. Blevins of Pittsburgh, Texas and Betty S. Hebert of Lake Charles, Louisiana; three step-sons, Clyde J. Dugas and Michael L. Dugas both of Lake Charles, Louisiana, and Jack D. Dugas of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania; one brother, Dennis Morgan Spain of Chesterfield, Virginia; one sister, Shelia Call of Richmond, Virginia; 27 grandchildren and a number of great-grandchildren.

The family suggests those wishing to make memorial contributions consider St. Jude Children's Research Hospital or The American Cancer Society.

A funeral service will be held Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Wells/Sheffield Funeral Chapel with Pastor John P. Campbell officiating.

Davy, we will always love you and miss you. You and I may have missed the younger years of our lives, but I was so happy when I found out that we were brothers. We made the most of the last 22 years. It was wonderful. I love you brother. We all love you, and we will always miss you, until we meet again. God bless you. In loving memory of you Davy.

You are going to be deeply missed! You have and always will be truly loved! You brought a shiny light into my dad and aunt Sheila's life when we all found out y'all were brothers and sister! I'll never forget our hike up the mountain in 2000 with daddy and Sheila. We had a blast! My kids miss you and love you and I miss and love you more than you would know! I will keep a watch over daddy and auntie Sheila!
