Aunt Mickey, Mike, Darla, Dor, and Mari,
So many memories of all the fun times we've had. I will always remember Uncle Bob's kindness to all of us and his sense of humor which he had right to the end. I know that he and Dad are now reunited to carry on the Saturday nights they loved so well.
Thinking of you all and love you.

Mayor of Magee Street. One of the good ole boy's! It was always great to visit with Bob, have a cold beer and talk about the good ole days that Bob so much enjoyed with all his ole buddies. When it came to pulling copper and bringing in the big lake trout nobody loved it more and could do it better than Bob Davis!
I sure am going to miss him! I believe Bob is now with all his ole buddies, doing what Bob did best, joking around and telling stories.
So sorry about your loss, but you do have many great memories from a man who truly loved his family and friends.
