RENDELL A. DAVIS ’44

RENDELL A. DAVIS, 90, a retired clergyman who had been executive director of the Pennsylvania Prison Society, died Sept. 6, 2013. He received his bachelor of divinity degree from McCormick Theological Seminary and then spent 10 years in Japan as a mission worker for the Presbyterian Church. After that, he expanded his ministry to include the field of corrections. He retired in 1986, but his ministry serving the marginalized continued, and he taught English to Central American refuges, led a visiting group to state prisons, and volunteered with a free health clinic. GLBTQ concerns were central to his ministry and led him to change his denominational affiliation to the United Church of Christ. Survivors include his wife, Florence Bryant Davis, and three children.
