David and Richard,
I just read about your Dad’s passing. I’m very sorry for your loss. From reading his obituary in the YS News, it sounds as though he had a full and interesting life. Your family will be in my thoughts in in the days ahead. Warm regards, Steve
Dear David and family,
Sorry to hear about your dad. I remember him as a nice man who liked to smile. He’d always say hi whenever we crossed paths. May his memory be a comfort and a blessing.
Although I’ve never met Mr. Davis, my wife Amy and I are the proud owners of the home he built 50 years ago on Brookside Dr in Yellow Springs OH. I’ve often wondered about the history of our residence and am pleased to learn it came from such a kind and loved man. I want his family to know that my wife and I are raising our two young children in that house. We love this house and Yellow Springs and hope to remain here for the rest of our lives. I believe some of Mr. Davis’ spirit endures here as this is a place of love and joy for our family and friends.
