Taivon Saunders

February 7, 2003 ~ May 21, 2022 (age 19)


On February 7, 2003 a healthy bouncing but crying little bundle of joy was born to Hank Davis, Jr. and Ebony Saunders.  He was the family pride and joy and the apple of our eyes. On May 21, 2022, God had other plans and called him home.
At birth, he was given the name Taivon but as he grew and became a little fella with so many characters and personalities, he went from being called pooh-pooh to Bubba to what most of you know him as Tai. Tai was so full of life, he gained the name “Milkshake” from his teammates”.
Taivon did some schooling in Bimini, Bahamas, but most of his education was done in Manatee County where he also played sports. He was such a great athletic kid. Like most kids, he switched his passion from sports to being an aspiring artist in the music field.
He was preceded in death by his granddad, Hank Davis, Sr.; Uncle Stephon Williams and two Aunts Lavon and Yvettchiel Saunders.
Taivon leaves to cherish his memories: Parents: Ebony Saunders and Hank Davis, Jr.  Siblings
 Tylan Fuller,  Edrick Hines, III and Daniya Simmons.  Grand Parents include Donald Williams, Yvonne Saunders, Patricia Davis (Ansil), Theresa and Jeff Charlton.  Aunts: Tyauanna Augustin, (Michael), April Crawford (Terry), Crystal Saunders, Donelle Saunders, Teyaquandria Saunders, Tamika Brennan, Ariel Parker (Jaquane), Melissa Williams, Erika Williams, Donnika Seymour (Cardero), Milly Nixon, Karasia Davis, Hylesha Davis, Editheria Williams.
