An account has been opened at Evolve Bank & Trust to help the family of Shelby County Public
Works employee Pierre Davis, who was tragically killed this past Monday, August 4th, while
cutting grass along a right-of-way near Raleigh.
“Mr. Davis had been married only a couple of months. The tragedy has been especially
difficult for his wife, Ashley, and their two young children, Pierre, six-years-old, and Andre,
three-years-old,” said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.
Mayor Luttrell asked today that flags be lowered to half-mast at Shelby County facilities through
Saturday, the day of Mr. Davis’ funeral.
Davis, 29, an eight-year employee with Shelby County Government, was honored in 2011 as one
of the County’s “Top Performers.” He was well-liked by his fellow employees at the Shelby County Roads and Bridges Department.
“Mr. Davis had a dedicated spirit to serve the public and was very kind to his fellow
employees at the Shelby County Public Works Division. Those he worked closely with
asked for the fund to be established to help his family,” said Tom Needham, Director of
Shelby County Public Works.
Contributions can be made to the family of Pierre Davis at Evolve Bank & Trust, 6070 Poplar
Avenue, Suite 100, Memphis, Tennessee, 38119. Checks should specifically be made out to
Ashley Harris Davis.
