BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) - The visitation for four members of a Bulloch County family will take place Friday.

Russell, Wendi, Susannah and Haley Davis were killed in a fire at their home at 723 Stilson Rd. in southeast Bulloch County.

One of Russell Davis's friends and co-workers at the Dairy Queen in Rincon, where he was a manager has fond memories.

"He was great with the kids. Being a father of six, he knew what it was like to be a dad. He really kind of fathered these kids and was really a mentor. He was a great man," said Scott Ballard, Davis's friend.

The visitation will be Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Joiner-Anderson Funeral Home in Statesboro.

Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Saturday at the Statesboro First Baptist Church. Rev. Mike Howard will officiate and will be assisted by Dr. Reland Morgan.

Interment will be in the Clito Baptist Church Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Davis Family Fund, C/O Farmers and Merchants Bank, 201 North Main St. in Statesboro, Ga. 30458 or 129 Parker Ave. Brooklet, Ga. 30415.
