In mid-January, Davis -- who still lives in the region of northern Mississippi where he was born -- sent a text message to the youth pastor of a local church he helped start, telling him: "I'm praying for you."
Among church congregants, Davis, known by some as Mr. Jim, was viewed as God-fearing and honest, according to Ethan Nanney, an elder at the church. In fact, Nanney told Bloomberg, Davis started the church, whose pastor is black, because he wanted a place where black and white people could come together. Davis is also on the board of Memphis's National Civil Rights Museum, which is located at the motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.
