We know Ervin is having a ball in Heaven! He has probably already enjoyed some time with my parents in Heaven, John & Martha Vickery, who loved him dearly as we do! I just saw his obituary and could not help but cry because he will greatly be missed by us and many, many others whose lives he touched! We will never forget awesome times with Ervin both in Colorado and South Carolina! Thank you Ervin for being such a great and true friend! We will never forget your love, humor, and exuberance for life! We look forward to a great reunion in Heaven when it is our time to pass that way! Much love to all the family, Doug and Sarah Martha Tinsley

What a wonderful person was Ervin Davis! From the late 1970s to six months ago, Ervin cut my hair and provided such memorable wit and wisdom while doing it. What a genuinely joy-filled person! He is so deeply missed.

Great seeing that picture! Mr. Ed was a prince of a man with a huge servant heart. Not sure I've had as good of a haircut since moving away. Prayers and peace to the family.

I've known Ed, (always called him Ed or The Old Man) for over 45 years, have never know a better person. So glad we continued the friendship over so many years. Ed was always upbeat, kind and telling bad jokes. Certainly will miss him, but no doubt where he is now.
