Your heroism and service is honored today, the 56th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect. Your memory will always be remembered and revered.

Rest In Peace

As a former resident of this historical american community, where Governor Johan Printz settled ... Patrolman Davis Sr was a remarkable man that raised a stellar man whom followed in his fathers steps as an Officer with the City of Chester, Pa; then accepting a position in the same department his father served. Patrolman Davis Sr became an icon throughout Tinicum Township, Pa (Essington & Lester). As a young boy and later a young firefighter, I frequently remember paying trubute to Patrolman Davis Sr each and every Memorial Day during ceremonies held at Town Hall where Patrolman Davis Sr was laid to rest. Both Mrs Davis and his son Micky helped raise alot of the young citizens in Lester, Pa to be fine men & women. Patrolman Davis Sr, your leadership and compassion of those you served to protect, gratefully appreciate your professionalism and want you to know that you are greatly missed.
