Steen Torben Davids, a US Navy Veteran, loving father and grandfather, passed away at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta, GA on April 14th, 2019.  He was a resident of Marietta, Georgia for 30 years and loved his East Cobb neighborhood.  

Steen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Lilli Gitta Bille Larsen, on August 25th, 1952.  At the age of 5 he moved with his mother and new Stepfather, Capt. Julian T. Bollinger, USN, to Boston, MA. From there he moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Mare Island, CA and spent his teenage years attending Sam Ramon Valley High School in Danville, California before joining the US Navy in 1972.  Following the Navy, he spent his entire career working for Hewlett Packard and moved from Silicon Valley to Georgia in 1993 before the big tech boom.

Steen enjoyed the simple things in life, a good beer, the San Francisco 49ers, Surround Sound, Tabasco, Pink Floyd, Dark Chocolate, Black Licorice, Ronald Reagan, and Scuba Diving.  He was in love with the universe and spent many nights looking up at the stars through his multiple telescopes.  Steen, or “Farf” is proclaimed the best “tickler” by his grandchildren and was an excellent cook who learned from his mother.  He loved a juicy steak as well as concocting sauces made from ranch dressing and ate anything spicy enough to kill your taste buds.  Most importantly, he was a kind and loving man who helped those he could.   

He is survived by his Son, Erik (Kerry) Davids, grandchildren, Niklas and Mia, Sister, Kim (Dave) Bridges, Brother, Michael Bollinger, Sister in Law, Sonia Bollinger, nieces and nephews, Dean Bollinger, John (Tiffany) Bollinger, Nicole (Ed) Reginelli, Jason (Gaylyn) Bollinger, David Bridges III, Devon Bridges, and Julianna Bridges.  His stubborn, yet warm and friendly demeanor will be missed by all. 

Friends and family are invited to attend a Military funeral service at 12 PM on May 7th at the Georgia National Cemetery at 1080 Scott Hudgens Dr, Canton, GA 30114.  A Celebration of life will be held in his honor at the home of Erik and Kerry Davids at 2 pm following the service.  Food and drinks will be provided.

Davids was a good man and it was a pleasure knowing him for the short time I did when he was at our center. His sarcastic humor and charm will be missed by all. It was a blessing to have known him. Reply to this comment

Sorry to hear of Steen's passing. After we both retired we packed up our telescopes and went to 3-4 'Star Parties' and set up camp for a week or so. Stayed up all night looking through each others scopes. Good times. Reply to this comment

I’m very saddened by Steen’s passing. I’ve been his next door neighbor for 10 yrs. Steen was allot of fun to be around. We were both retired and had allot of talks and a few beers. He was one of those people that had nice things to say about people or he didn’t say at all. He was a kind hearted and likable man. I’ve missed him since he’s been away sick and luckily spoke to him very recently. There’s no doubt Steen will be with his Lord and we will get to drink another beer some day. Rest well my friend, you will be sorely missed. Reply to this comment

I worked with Steen for years at HP and always enjoyed his laugh. I can hear it even now! I also saw past the exterior to a very kind and caring heart he could not hide. Evidence to his kindness was a lifetime career in the "service" department where he received high praises regularly for his willingness and desire to help people during their stressful business situations. Steen was a blessing to many and we may never know just how his kindness in serving may have impacted countless people: Hospitals, government, power companies, credit industries, yes even church organizations. Also proud of his service in the US Navy. Clearly Steen cared sincerely for others on this planet. Thanks Steen! I look forward to the great hope of seeing Steen again on that Great Day when the Lord comes to gather together all those with a kind heart born of a Good Spirit. May Gob bless his family until then.
