Robert Anthony Davis

Officer Robert Davis succumbed to injuries sustained four days earlier when he was struck by a patrol car setting out flares at the scene of an earlier accident.

A nearby officer was responding to backup another officer at a shoplifting call when his patrol car collided with another vehicle near the intersection of Potranco Road and Hunt Lane. The collision knocked the patrol car into Officer Davis.

Officer Davis was transported to a local hospital where he was put on life support. He was removed from life support four days later and died as a result of his injuries.

The officer driving the patrol car was also seriously injured in the crash, and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He will have to serve 7.5 years before his is eligible for parole.

Officer Davis had served with the San Antonio Police Department for 1 year and had previously served in the Persian Gulf with the United States Marine Corps. He is survived by his wife.

I served with you in Corps (Bravo 1/5)...remember when we came down to SA in 2003 before heading off to Oki...and then to Fallujah?? We were on recruiting assistance...and talked about what we were going to do after getting out. I remember seeing you at the convention center where we took the civil exam and talked briefly before leaving. The next time I saw you was on the news. That day...I had been Christmas shopping at Ingram Mall and tried to go down Potranco Rd to go home. Little did I know...it was you. I let all of our Brothers know what happened. 1stSgt was very sad...as we all were.

You were an outstanding Marine and I'm certain that you were the same as an officer. You'll always be that tall red headed string bean that I joked around with while in the Corps.

Rest in Peace Brother. Keep those streets of Gold in Heaven safe. We've got it down here.
