This is Betty Jo posting this.
Some of you may already know.
Davis passed away December 27, 2021 from complications of Covid.
He was a loving husband and father. He was proud of his daughter. He kept his faith in God through many trials.
Davis was filled with wanderlust. He greatly enjoyed his many years on the road from traveling the fair circuit with his unique sideshows and games to volunteering with airshows and kite buggy events.
He stood by my side at our T shirt Shoppe for 40 plus years. I will miss him dearly.
He was a Vietnam vet that loved his country. Army. Air traffic control.
He summed up his own life like this
What a life I lived. I enjoyed it all.

Sorry to hear this as well. His t-shirt designs were always a highlight of our annual trip to Jekyll.

Had some great encounters and will remember him when I grab a shirt from JIBE. Seemed to be a gentleman in every sense of the word. Very sad...

Davis was is own man and gave us all what he was. I had long conversations about life and times sitting in the parking lot at JIBE waiting for the wind with him. I was glad to have called him friend. He is mssed.

I talked to him before thanksgiving. he was making plans to go to ivanpah around Christmas to buggy, he talked about his new ultralight airplane he ordered, his pirate motorhome and the pirate shirts for JIBE. and so much more, so full of life. He will be missed.
