Leo C. Davis

Leo C. Davis was a district superintendent and pastor at Bedford, Indiana, Davis Memorial Church in the 1980s. Davis Memorial was named for Leo's wife, Lela Davis, charter member and active congregation leader in Sunday School, missions, and the church board after her sudden death in 1956. The church has since grown and adopted the name Restoration Church of the Nazarene in 2017.
