Funeral services for the son of Congressman Danny K. Davis (7th) were announced today in a statement released by Davis’s office.

Stacey Wilson, 47, died on March 29 from unknown causes. Autopsy results are pending.

In a statement released last week, Davis said that Wilson had been “complaining of high blood pressure and as of now we do not know the cause of death.”

Wilson, 47, was the father of Javon Wilson, Davis’s 15-year-old grandson who was murdered inside of his family’s apartment in the Englewood neighborhood last November.

“It’s tough when you cannot predict for them with any sense of certainty that the quality of life for them is going to be better than what it has been for their parents and grandparents,” Davis told the Chicago Tribune at the time of his grandson’s murder. “I’m not sure I can predict for my grandchildren that the quality of life for them is going to be better than it is for me right now.”

Wilson’s body will lie in state for viewing at Garfield Waters Funeral Home, 3409 W. Madison St., on April 8, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Funeral services will take place on Sunday, April 9, 4 p.m., at Greater Holy Temple Ministries, 5906 W. Chicago Ave.

Wilson will be buried at Mount Hope Cemetery, 11500 S. Fairfield Ave. in Chicago on April 10. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests you make a contribution to the Javon Wilson Scholarship Fund. VFP
