Frank E. Davidson, 40

Frank E. Davidson of Danbury and Wilton, died unexpectedly in his sleep on November 6th. He was 40 years old.

Frank was an independent cabinetmaker who worked primarily in Connecticut and Massachusetts. He had a reputation for creativity and perfectionism.

Frank graduated from Wilton High School in 1993. After two years at the University of New Hampshire business school, he joined his family’s interior design and cabinetmaking business. Several years later he launched his own shop, Davidson Woodworking: Fine Custom Cabinetry.

Frank was raised by his grandparents, Don and Barbara Davidson, who survive him. He is also survived by his brother, Chris Davidson of Georgetown, his aunt and her husband, Karen Davidson and Peter Seward of Lake Placid, NY, and his great-aunt and uncle, Jim and Phyllis Ingwersen of Sister Bay, Wisconsin. His mother died in 2011.

Frank played competitive pool. He was an avid fisherman and a classic car buff. Remembrances by his friends and family focus on what a character he was, his sense of humor and his infectious laugh. He was such a big personality, a bright flame extinguished much too young.

A service will be held to celebrate Frank’s life on November 22, 2014 at 1 p.m. at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, where he is well respected for cabinet work he did for the church. St. Matthew’s is located at 36 New Canaan Road, Wilton.

In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church Memorial Fund for a permanent remembrance that will be created in Frank’s memory.
