The son of Thomas J. and Edna (Snook) Davenport, Tom was born on March 24, 1925, on a farm west of Mingo. He graduated from Mingo High School in 1942. On February 22, 1948, he was united in marriage to Ina Mae Magg at her parents' home near Mingo. Tom lived and worked in the Mingo community his entire life. He farmed in the early years; worked at the Mingo Locker, prior to becoming a part owner in 1980; and worked for the City of Mingo for more than 40 years. He also was a member of the Mingo Fire Department for over 40 years.
Those left to honor his memory include two children, Marna Davenport and Larry Davenport; grandchildren, Alex (Nicole) Frangopol; great-grandchildren, Mia and Colin Frangopol and granddog and little buddy, Izzy, all of Mingo. Also surviving are two sisters-in-law, Arlene Danley and Erma McKinney; two brothers-in-law, Harold (Margorie) Magg and Norman (Roslyn) Magg; and many nieces and nephews, some of which were just like his own children. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife on January 10, 2013, three sisters, Minnie Davenport, Ila Frey and Phyllis Magg, and two brothers, Robert Davenport and Lyle Ayers.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may directed to the family for distribution to his favorite organizations.
What a wonderful guy he was. When we lived in Mingo he and my Dad worked together to keep the town clean and cared for. When Russ was on the council he and Tommy (always Tommy never Tom) worked on the water bill together. I'm sure the town is already missing him.
Our prayers and sympathies are extended to the family and friends of Tom Davenport.
