William Davis and I have been business partners and friends for over fifty years. I am proud to have been connected with such a fine and well-liked gentleman. Now, as I mourn his passing, I send Jackie and the whole Davis family my deepest sympathy.

Always sorry to hear of the loss of a neighbor so close to Seven Springs.
Jeff, if Karen's mom was Nancy Quinn, please know I'm so happy for you two.
She needs someone to be good to her.
Please accept our condolences for your father.

There has never been a more finer or respectable person I've ever had the privilege to know than William Davis. This world could definitely learn by following his example. My thoughts are with the family.

Know for his work ethic and his devotion to his family , those of us who had the pleasure to know him will miss that smile and kind words he seemed to always have . And his desire to further the protection of all the Sandy Bottom area was seen in his tireless work to promote and better the Sandy Bottom Fire Department . We know he's at peace and pain free . RIP William .

Our hearts break with yours. Mr William was such an awesome friend to us and we will truly miss him. I'm so grateful for that strong caring hug I got from him at the grocery store not too long ago. Always hold everything he taught you close to heart and everyday that voice guiding you through your workday will be his still helping lead the way. Love & prayer, wish we could be with you.
