Reflections for Officer Harry Davis, Jr.

Thinking of you today, I can't help but remember "all" of the fun and happy times we shared growing up and throughout our adulthood. You were much more to me than a cousin. You were my fourth brother! I miss our many conversations of just about anything (LOL), your humor, laughter and sense of wonder! You will be forever in my heart! As always with Love! Rest In Peace!!

Harry Davis was my best childhood friend. We did everything together. I still cry to this day about his death. He was truly a good man and friend

Harry Davis and I served together during Desert Storm, he was such a wonderful man and a great soldier. We had some really good times over there, some great conversations. I think of you often. I was just starting my Law enforcement career when you were taken. It was a terrible day. Rest in peace my friend. I know I should have done this sooner but thank you for your dedication, service and sacrifice I hope to see you again someday. God be with your family.

I remember the day you passed away. Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating and hard working hands went to rest. God broke my heart to prove to me, he only takes the best.

Officer Harry,

I am a new recruit with Metro Transit Police and I was given the assignment to research you. I came across this page and could not stop reading the reflections that everyone has posted. They were very touching. I would have loved to had the opportunity to work with you. It appears that you were a "stand up" cop. On behalf of Recruit Class 111, I would like to personally thank you for all your services (police, fire, and military), and want to assure you that you are not forgotten.

Mrs. Cathy thank you for being a supportive spouse and allowing your husband to serve in such enormous capacities. I can truly tell that you guys were giving people. I loved reading your yearly entries and can tell you were happily married. I know your husband has a special place in your heart and without even getting to know him, he plays a special role in what/how I will perform my duties on a daily basis. Thank you!

More than twenty three years have passed since I left the MTPD. In that time, I have met thousands of people from all walks of life. I can still state that Harry Davis is one of the finest men I have ever had the pleasure to know. I can still recall his sincerity and kindness. He took time for me when I was a young rookie and he was one of the most popular members of the department. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, I don't recall exactly what we talked about or exactly what was said, but I remember the way he made me feel. He inspired me to be a better officer, but more importantly, a better man. Harry was the total package, and I still think of him often.
Rest in Peace, Harry. You are not forgotten.

Harry, was my personal friend and co-corporate officer: he served as Vice president of our fire company. i would sometimes have dinner at his home with his wife and small children. This reflection is getting too tough to write so I will close by saying; I will always miss my friend and fellow public safety officer

In 1993 I was assigned to the 8830th MP BDE at Ft Meade. I remember meeting you. You were one of the drill sergeants in my company. It's funny how much you can learn about someone in the blink on an eye. You struck me with your powerful presence and warm, confident demeanor. You said to call you Harry. I liked you immediately but never really got a chance to know you better. I remember the phone call asking if I had heard. I hadn't. I remember the funeral so well. Firefighters, Police, Army, friends, family. You touched so many. I later became a Police Officer in Montgomery County and, as an FTO, I told your story to those I trained. So far they have stayed safe, and so have I. Your memory is a gift I carry with me. When we meet again I want to shake your hand and thank you. I'll remember to call you Harry. Rest in peace, my brother.

A friend reminded me of your passing today. I was a High school classmate of Harry's at Fairmont Heights. I considered you a friend and will never forget your big smile and how you made all the new students at FHHS feel welcome

I was watching a TV show tonight about a Canadian Police Officer that was shot in the line of duty and decided to google Harry Davis's name. On December 20th, 1993 I was the Field Training Officer (FTO) for a female rookie on her first night out of the academy. We were across the street when the call went out. A Sig. 13 (Ofc. in trouble). We were the first unit on the scene. I found him at the foot of the concrete steps where he had given chase to the suspect. Ofc. Davis was dead. I have never forgotten that night. My rookie and I were never the same after that. I didn't know him but learned many things about him. He was very respected and loved. He made the supreme sacrifice and we will never forget him!

Uncle Harry, I'm not sure what made me google your name today, but you were on my mind. You are truly missed. Love you, Locky.

To Officer Racine, thank you for the beautiful words.
