Kenneth H. Davies passed away on April 18, 2017, in Jupiter, FL. He was born on January 7, 1962, in Atlanta, GA. His family moved to Indiantown, FL in 1966 where he grew up and lived his whole life. He graduated from Jupiter Christian School and from the University of Florida with a Criminal Justice degree. Ken had a big heart and cared deeply for everyone. He was the first to help anyone in need. Ken recently retired after 32 years with the State of Florida Public Defender's Office in Belle Glade. Ken had a passion to help others and was known as "The man for the people". He was able to positively affect so many young lives due to his abilities to listen and provide guidance. Ken's kindness and passion to help others made everyone feel special and important. Ken had a great sense of humor, sharp wit and a big personality which made him the life of any party. He was a Florida Gator fanatic, "GO GATORS".
