RIP Bret Davidson

Island Funeral Service

Bret was born on February 28, 1959 in Glendale, California.

He passed away on April 19, 2017 on Vashon Island, WA.

Growing up in a racing family, he was already riding motorcycles at the age of 5. By 15 he had become the state champion in the 125 Pro Class in Arizona and received a factory ride from Bultaco which lead him to a 29th National Ranking. He then took his talents to the screen and in his first film he was cast to play a young Desperado in The Kid and the Gun Fighter in 1980. Upon finishing 2nd in a National Stuntman's Competition in 1983, Judge, Jocko Mahoney said, "Bret, go to LA and pursue your dream, you have what it takes". This was just the beginning of Bret's career as an actor/stunt man.

Bret moved to Vashon Island 5 ½ years ago to be with his girlfriend, Kitty English. He enjoyed life on the island and made many friends. He was a huge fan of the 49’s until the Rams moved back to LA, he then rooted for them. He also enjoyed Frisbee golf, spending time at Point Robinson Lighthouse and crabbing in the summer.

He is preceded in death by his Mother, Shirley, and Father, Clifton, They were his biggest mentors.

Bret is survived by his girlfriend, Kitty English, of Vashon Island, his son Bradley, his daughter Desi, his son Johnathan nee Dustin, his sister Desiree, his brother Aaron and his wife Liesa, as well as several nieces and a nephew.
