Reflections for Officer Harry Davis, Jr.

Harry was a good friend of mine and we served together during Operation Desert Storm. We had many good poker games in the desert. You are not forgotten.

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.

Don't know why I thought of you today Harry, but i often do. I googled your name and found this site. I'll never forget the sorrow that I felt when reporting for duty the morning after you had fallen. Nor will I ever forget your gentle demeanor and kind heart. You are missed. I hope you are resting in peace.

You were my uncle and I loved you deeply. I was about 7 years old when you passed and I remember you always played games with me when we lived together. Im now 27 years old and I have a son who is 3 months. I vow to make sure he knows who you were and what kind of good you did. Grandma (your sister) still mourns you as does all of us. I miss you, and I love you SO much.

Another year has passed but there are moments in life when I wish I could bring you back, spend the day with you just one more time, give you one more hug, or hear your voice again. One more chance to say I love you. Still miss you so very much.

Red roses grow in heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me ~ place them in Harry’s arms & tell him they’re from me ~ tell him that I love & miss him & when he turns to smile ~ place a kiss upon his cheek & hold him for awhile ~ because remembering him is easy ~ I do it everyday ~ there’s an ache within my heart that will…never…go…away…
