Good friend and colleague, veteran of many hours at coffee at Tech and years of happy visits in our common retirement all these years. Miss you, Bill.

The best professor I ever had. Working a full-time job at Lauren's Glass and going to school part-time was difficult, but Dr. Davis was always there for me. I can still remember him coming around and tapping on the shoulder when I was starting to wear out after having worked a graveyard shift. I went on to earn a Ph.D. and Dr. Davis will always be a part of the reasons why. Rest in peace.

Dr. Davis was a great man. I know he will be missed by all of you, the family, but he and your mom, instilled such great values into all of y'all. I am honored to have known, both Dr. Davis and Mrs. Faye.
