Services Held For Man Killed In Fall From Ladder

Funeral services were held Sunday for a Putnam County man, who died while he was cleaning the gutters of his home on Cookeville Boat Dock Road.  Authorities say 50-year-old Jeffrey William Davis sustained a major head injury in the fall, which occurred just after 3 pm last Thursday.  According to a report from the sheriff's department, Davis was already dead when they arrived on the scene. Officials say it's not clear if he fell from the ladder or from the roof of the home and onto the pavement of his driveway. They say it appears that the feet of the ladder kicked back out from under him. Friends say Davis will be remembered for his compassionate heart and his willingness to always help others.
