Larry Keith Davis, 77, of the Knifley area of Taylor County, KY passed away on Wednesday, September 28, 2022 at the University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington, KY surrounded by his family. He was born on March 29, 1945 in Yuma, KY to the late Dan Davis and Ethel Reynolds Davis. 
 
Larry began his career as a police officer for Kentucky Commercial Vehicle Enforcement in 1972. Each workday, he made the sixty-mile drive to the Elizabethtown, KY post where he patrolled the I-65 corridor. After a 36-year career in law enforcement, Larry retired as captain in 2008. He was a member of the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police and made sure the whole family had the license plates to prove it. Additionally, he enjoyed serving as a committee member for Revisit Knifley, where he took great care to help organize his community’s yearly festival.
 
His family is most grateful for his caring nature, youthful curiosity, and spirit of perseverance that he instilled in each of us. Following his retirement, Larry continued to work on the farm each day with the same dedication of one still working a breadwinner’s 9-5. He had a passion for restoring antique tractors, meticulously caring for a rotating troop of barn cats, and collecting all sorts of items and trinkets that piqued his interest. Larry also enjoyed participating in the local tractor shows and parades. He was famously active, lively, and full of vigor until the very end.
