    Our sincere sympathies to the Davis Family. I always enjoyed my conversation with him. He tried to teach me how to rope a propane tank as a kid. “Very patient man”. Full of smiles and laughter. And he was always kind enough to ask about my mom and dad when he spoke to me, As an adult. He will be missed. And I thank god he never killed me when I lit that cigarette for Chad once when we was very little. 😂. Lots of hugs to My cousins Cherry & David Veith.
