Davis Family,
I did not know Mr. Davis personally, but over many years through our mutual careers in the golf industry have become good friends with one of his sons Doug Davis. Just over 1-week ago at a golf course Superintendents Christmas party Doug was telling me of Mr. Davis's hobbies including trapping, coon hunting, and golfing to name a few of Doug's memories of his dad. I can definitely see the resemblance and many common hobbies. Rest in Peace..

I want to extend my sympathy to all of you on the passing of Larry. The first time I met Larry he was umpiring a high school softball game with my dad. I would then see him at the post office and later at the Country Club where I would see him a lot. I swear he lived on the golf course during the summer. I knew when I saw him coming that he would always have something nice to say as well as having that smile on his face. He will be missed.

Darrel and Sharon Rettig December 14, 2019

Shirlene and family. You have our deepest sympathy.
