Jack Davis was the son of the late ‘’RC’’ Robert Carter and Jessie Crisp Davis of Mart Texas. He was the seventh born out of 9 total children. As a child, he and his 8 brothers and sisters worked on the family farm where they didn’t start public school like others until after six weeks when farming season slowed. He was raised in a very strict but incredibly loving home where his father took his role as head of household very serious. They all worked very hard and enjoyed Saturday nights when they were taken to the movies and shared family time. He was a member of Ben Hur First Baptist Church where he dedicated his life to Christ and soon became baptized in a stock tank as a young boy.
