I grew up in Greenville and some of my fondest memories are playing little league baseball. One of my coaches was Mr Davis. He was a great inspiration to me and encouraged all of us with his positive attitude and supportive teaching. I am 62 years old now and no longer live in Greenville, but the memories of the fun we had playing for Coach Davis and the Yankees at Riverside park are memories I’ll have forever.
My deepest condolences to the Davis family. What a great guy.
