Joseph Stanley Davis, 65, formerly of Hopkinton, died May 13, 2024 at Milford Regional Medical Center after a brief illness.  Born in Framingham, MA, he was the devoted son of the late Stanley J. and Rita E. (Leonard) Davis.

He graduated from Marian High School in Framingham, MA, and attended Marycrest College in Davenport, Iowa from where he had many fond memories. He had the recent opportunity to make a return trip to reunite with life-long friends. He graduated from Stonehill College in Easton, MA.

Joe enjoyed baseball in his youth and, as an avid outdoorsman, spent many hours canoeing, fishing, and swimming at Hopkinton Reservoir and at the beaches on Cape Cod. He and Snuffy, his dog and constant companion, had a great affinity for solitude, nature and outdoor adventures.

He loved to work with his hands and spent most of his life in the construction trade splitting his time between Hopkinton and the outer Cape. He also held a deep appreciation of history and spent many enjoyable trips with his brother-in-law Carl to monuments, historical/battle sites, and museums.

Joseph is survived by his siblings Kenneth Bates of Framingham, MA, John Davis of Wildwood, Florida and his “Irish twin” Judith Vohden and her husband Allen of West Simsbury, CT. He was predeceased by his sister Sara Deeb, her husband Carl and brother William Bates. He also leaves numerous nephews and nieces whom he cherished with great joy and friends that he held dear.

A memorial funeral service will be held Saturday, June 1, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. at the Callanan Cronin Funeral Home, 34 Church Street, Hopkinton.  Visitation will take place prior to the funeral service, from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m.
