Saddened by this news. John was a good soul that spent his valuable time leading the HAB Triad in Houston and was successful in leading and aligning the club with the Asian community just to name one example. He was uplifting and good spirited. He was goodhearted and friendly. A great guy!

Here at Jefferson Jr. Sr. High school we are deeply saddened by the loss of John Davis. I am sad the hear of this news. I didn't know John that well but what I did know of him was that he was a very genuine person with great stories. He will be missed by all of us here. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Well, John and Pelima, as a UCLA alumnus, I have a problem with that picture in the USC Trojans T. Other than that, though, I adore the pictures, and the range of interests for the 2 of you, and your wonderfully full life that these pictures document. John definitely is a light that is gone much too soon. We had such good chats at LP, and in the Adjunct Room at LSM. All those conversations where he talked about his students as if they were his children- I thought he was a foster parent, or dedicated Catholic father for a time there. Prayers and kind wishes for a life well lived from here, I will be sure to have a S'more myself this evening in John's memory.

Pelima... my heart is heavy for our loss...John is on the next journey.... we are sad, not that he is gone on ahead of us.... rather we are sad because we are left behind... John is just beyond the horizon... one day we will top the hill and see our loved ones smiling back at his waving to us to come along and join them. Oh the joy and love of that reunion.... What splendor happiness it shall be...

John was my first American friend. We met when we were both graduate students. He hosted my family for my graduation party at his house. He invited me to spend multiple christmas in my new country with his family. He taught me pride and he took me for the first time to the land of enchantment, New Mexico a place that I now and forever will call home. John was generous, giving, kind, fair,an incredible human being. He made a huge impact in my life. Thank you my dear Friend. I will forever cherish you.
To Pelima, I am so sorry about your loss. I know he will always love you and will continue from heaven to be very proud of you . I really do not have words to express my deep condolonces. To Earl, Dee (RIP) Ed and family, Thank you for bringing up such an incredible human being who touched our lives so deeply.
