Local soldier killed in action

Pfc. Jonathon F. Davis was killed in action Thursday in the Kandahar province of Afghanistan. Davis, 20, was from Griffin. Pfc. Davis was clearing a rooftop in Kandahar Province when he was killed by a sniper’s bullet. His wife, Kristen, is eight months pregnant with their son. The couple married last year. ”Our son is due May 25th. We talked about the fact that John wasn’t going to be here for his birth because he’d be in the middle of his deployment. We didn’t think he would never come back at all,” Kristen Davis told WXIA in Atlanta. The family plans to name the child Benjamin Jonathan Davis. Funeral arrangements will be handled by Conner Westbury Funeral Home in Griffin.
