Born in Worcester on April 22, 1944, he was the son of Robert Davis Sr. and was a life-long resident of Sutton. He attended Sutton schools and started working as a steeplejack at a young age. A hard-working man, he was employed as an industrial painter, painting oil tanks and bridges, and as a ferrier servicing horses. In 1982, Robert bought his father-in-law’s business and started RFD Small Engine Repair that he owned and operated for many years. Robert was a jack-of-all-trades. There was nothing he couldn’t fix. He enjoyed making beautiful cutting boards out of wood, and collected train sets, constructing the tracks and miniature villages himself.
