With heartfelt sympathy we announce the transition of Mr. Herman Davenport who traded time for eternity on Monday, Sepetember 21, 2020 at the age of 76.

Herman Lee Davenport, known as "Gate", was born August 26, 1944 to the late Guy and Willie Mae Kendrick Davenport in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama. He was educated in the Gadsden City School System.

"Gate" accepted Christ at an early age and later re-dedicated his life to Christ at Living Truth Christian Church under the leadership of Apostle Amos Howard. He continued his biblical teachings under Pastor Zackery Andre' Huff. While under Pastor Huff's teaching, he became an ordained deacon in 2011. He continued to serve as a deacon at Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church under Pastor Jeremy Bowman. 

His journey of life was filled with much excitement. He served his country for six years in the United States Army. Upon his return home, he began employment with the City of Gadsden where he retired September 2007.
Sickness invaded his body, yet he fought the good fight of faith. On September 21, 2020, God dispatched an "angel of mercy' to his beside and whispered, "Herman, my son, it's time to be absent from the body and be present with the Lord forever." The death angel beckoned and he slept on into glory. He now joins his wife, Patricia Ann Moore Davenport; parents, Guy and Willie Mae Kendrick Davenport; brother, Russell Kendrick; two sisters, Lottie Mae Golden and Doris Gooden.

Those left to cherish the many memories he left include his daughter, Tarcha (Phillip) Smith; two sons, D'Antey Kimble- Davenport, Jamais Frazier-Davenport; one grandson, Robert Ceon Long; great-grandson, Jacobi Frazier-Davenport, all of Gadsden, AL; two brothers, Leon (Charlene) Winborn, Flint, MI, Billy (Mabel) Davenport, Gadsden, AL, sister, Guy Eula Davenport Harris, Gadsden, AL; two brothers-in-law, Charlie (Emma) Moore, Don (Sandra) Moore, both of Gadsden, AL; two sisters-in-law, Delois Hendricks, Gadsden, AL, Teresia (Thomas) Hall, Jacksonville, AL; two special nieces, Stacey Avery, Rhonda (Mark) Turner, both of Gadsden, AL; two special nephews, Anthony (Lisha) Keith, Jamal (Erica) Wilson, both of Gadsden, AL; special friends, Arlora Kimbourgh, Eugene Kinney, Sr., Benny Parks, all of Gadsden, AL; godchild, Princess; a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Celebration of Life will be 1:00p.m. Saturday, September 26, 2020 at Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church, Attalla, with Pastor Jeremy Bowman, presiding. Interment will follow at Lincoln Hill Cemetery. Visitation will be 4:00-6:00p.m. Friday, September 25, 2020 at the Etowah Chapel of Adams-Buggs Funeral Service.
