Gary and Kevin, I was sad to hear about your dad’s passing when I arrived in KY last Saturday to visit family for the holidays. How can I possibly express briefly what your Mom and Dad meant to mine and our family all those years of card games and visits when we were growing up? I’ll always remember Howard’s laugh and jokes and love of friendship with my parents. Didn’t that generation seem to have a greater gift for simple happiness? Such a kind and good guy; he will be missed. My prayers to your whole family as you go through this first Christmas without him as we do without our Mom. I hope we can carry on the legacy they left us.
Gary and Kevin,
A good man has left this life for a better life. May happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time.
Gary & Kevin, We want to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. We have many great memories of your dad and mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Gary and Kevin,
I want to say how sad I am for you at the passing of your dad. Uncle Howard was a favorite uncle. He always liked to tell me jokes whenever we would be together and always liked telling me about both of you and your children. I am sad that the last of Nelson and Hannah’s children is gone. That family had some incredible stories and left an important legacy to all of us. They will be missed! My thoughts are with you.
We will always remember Howard being part of the 8:00 am service at Christ Church Cathedral. We are truly sorry and he will be truly missed.
So sad to hear about Howard’s passing. I’m Jack and Cindy’s daughter and have nothing but positive memories of Howard, and of Shirley. He was a great neighbor and I know my parents cherished their relationship with him. Wishing everyone in the Davis family the best,
