  2. Dick Davis was the rock solid foundation of a man who was always optimistic with a good sense of humor. He faced all obstacles in life, like a Lion. He was a selfless provider for his family & a wonderful husband to his loving wife Betty. He will be missed by many, leaving an imprint on every one he met.
