Billy Davis grew up in the south, in Tennessee. His mom took on the role of a single parent after his father died at age eleven. Billy was the eldest son and helped his mom through the difficult years by working and contributing to the family finances. In junior high, Billy met the love of his life, Billie Jo Johnson. The two were married right out of high school, have been happily married for fifty-four years and have three adult children and five grandchildren.
Since the age of 22, Billy has owned and operated many successful companies. These have included everything from land development, vacation resorts, to medical research facilities. While serving as an Arizona State Senator in 1983, Billy was invited to travel to The Bahamas for a Tax Seminar on the island of Eleuthera, an island his ancestral family had some roots. After this trip to The Bahamas, Billy and his family fell in love with this island nation, its people and its beauty. The Davis Family began to place their roots down by investing in land and building homes for themselves.
