Davis, a slow left-armer, was a member of the treble-winning Warwickshire squad of 1994, having started his career with his native Kent. He also played for Gloucestershire, Sussex - in one-day cricket only - and Leicestershire.
Davis was starting on a career in coaching but within weeks of his final appearance for Leicestershire in 2001 he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. A second, more aggressive tumour, which required surgery, was discovered in September this year.
Neil Smith, a team-mate of Davis at Warwickshire, led the tributes. "He was thoughtful, caring and considerate," he said. "An honest and straightforward guy who will be sadly missed."
Davis leaves a wife, Sam, who is the sister-in-law of David Fulton, Kent's captain.
