The Texas Southern Department of Athletics mourns the loss of longtime Equipment Manager Eddie L. Davis.
Davis spent 30-plus years in the SWAC as he joined Texas Southern University as the head athletic equipment manager in 2008 after a 17-year stint at Prairie View A&M in the same capacity. In addition to his equipment duties, Davis played a large role in athletic operations as he was responsible for the set-up and breakdown of athletic events inside the H&PE Arena and off-campus venues where TSU athletic events were played along with assisting TSU Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Kevin Granger with business operations.
A native of Houston, Davis graduated from Prairie View A&M in 1983 with a degree in physical education. Upon graduation, Davis moved on to the Westland YMCA in Houston and served as the youth director. As the youth director, Davis oversaw teen programs, coordinated field trips, and the use of vehicles.
In August 2006, Davis was honored as one of Prairie View A&M’s employees of the year by the Staff Advisory Council.
A viewing and funeral will be held on Saturday, May 6 at Lockwood Funeral Home in Houston. The viewing will be held from 9 a.m. – 9:50 a.m. followed by a 10 a.m. funeral. The funeral home is located at 9402 Lockwood Drive in Northeast Houston.
