Dr. Rebecca "Becky" Davidson
Dr. Davidson was a valued member of our CVM community and the Class of 2007. Her contributions to the college and the profession of veterinary medicine have made a lasting impact. She will continue to be remembered fondly and missed dearly.
Rebecca Kay "Becky" Davidson (Thompson), age 38, of Lakewood, CO, passed away Thursday, December 13, 2018, after a fiercely fought two-year battle with breast cancer.
Becky grew up in Mount Juliet, TN, and received a BS in Biology from Tennessee Technological University in 2002. She married Brad in 2003 and obtained a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Virginia Tech in 2007. She and Brad moved to Denver, CO, where she practiced medicine at Columbine Animal Hospital.

She was known to everyone that met her for her incredible kindness, gentle green eyes, and squinty smile. Becky was an athlete (gymnast, triathlete), an avid outdoor adventurer (mountain biker, alpine climber, backcountry skier), a passionate reader, a letter writer, and crafter. She enjoyed doing anything with her husband and children, especially in the mountains. Becky attended Skyview Presbyterian Church in Centennial, CO.
