  3. This is the obituary for my great grandfather. He was by far one of the best people I have ever been around and one of the best role models I have ever had. I will miss seeing him every Friday or taking him groceries or just in general hearing his voice. He has not passed however because he will live on through the people who knew him. If you ever met him, he surely made an impact and I am proud to have had 28 years with him. Love you pa paw, until we meet again

  6. Uncle Doug,
    You had the kindest soul and a heart of gold. Your eyes glistened whenever you would talk about your grandchildren. Your love for Aunt Sarah was heartwarming, you never missed a visit to the cemetery after her passing on those special occasions of her Birthday or Valentines Day.
    You had a special sibling bond with my father, Jacob. Always checking in to see he was alright, giving him emotional support when it was needed.
    Remember our fishing trips to the Hughesville farm and Mushroom hunting. You having fun at my expense when I was emotional of the death of Bambi’s mother in the Disney film. Your humor was like no one else’s in the family. You will be missed.
    Love, Nephew Tony B Davis.

  7. Love you pap. Like everyone says, you are a great role model. Thanks for all the memories, wisdom, and most of all the laughs. Your truly an original man of men. Never to be forgotten. Thanks for everything…….
