After graduating from Harlan High School, he attended Cumberland College (now The University of the Cumberlands) in Williamsburg, Kentucky. William E. Davies was an S/Sgt in the Air Force from January 10, 1951, to January 9, 1955. On August 15, 1954, he married Anna Sue Enloe of Pampa, Texas. They were married for 60 years. They have three children – David Andrew, Damon Mark, and Danna Elizabeth – and three grandchildren – Andrea Lauren, Dawson Harris, and Dane William. The Davies raised their family in Lake Jackson, Texas and attended First Baptist Church where Bill was a Bible teacher and deacon.

Bill still holds the record for most wins as a basketball coach at Brazoswood. Coach Davies was loved by so many and was a great coach and teacher during his 42 years at Brazoswood High School.

Bill loved the Lord, his church, and his people. He was kind to everyone he came in contact with. His sense of humor was one of a kind (IYKYK). He will be greatly missed, but we know that even without the body, we are with the Lord, and we will see him again someday.
