As a reminder those who knew Sergeant Detective Donald E. Davey of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department, he was a devoted husband, a loving father, a kind, generous neighbor, a man of faith, loyal to his country, supported the freedoms we enjoy, and protected the public’s welfare in Lincoln County. Sadly, he was killed in the line of duty thirty years ago, July 30th, 1984, survived by his wife, my mother Laurinda Davey (now Cushman), my sister, Cecily, myself, his parents, brothers, and many other relatives.
My father served in Lincoln County and resided in Knox County, in Friendship. I appreciate the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department for honoring him July 30th, 2014 at the Donald E. Davey Bridge in Wiscasset, named in his honor, with a memorial ceremony. Because of the great sacrifice my father made, I will always appreciate the men and women of police forces everywhere who lay down their lives daily to protect the public.
