I am shocked and saddened to see the announcement of Davis' passing.  Dap, as he was known to many, and I were in several classes together, but more importantly to me, we were teammates for three years on Coach Dorf's track team.  After so many years, I was looking forward to seeing him at the reunion to talk about old times and have a few laughs.  For me, the "takeaway" from this news is to reach out and reconnect now with classmates who have been found, rather than waiting until later.

I always thought that Dap was the ultimate cool dude - good looking, great dresser, and superb athlete.  Sad to see that he's gone.  RIP.

Like other classmates, I too am saddened to learn that 'Dap' is no longer with us.  A gifted athlete and terrific teammate, he brought honor to Olney High and provided many thrills with his extraordinary performances as a dynamic football player and track star.  He will be missed by his family and many friends!  Jim Golden

Well this is very sad news. I too knew Davis very well. In fact he often wrote poetry to me. He often walked me home from school and sit and talk with me. He had a gentle and very sweet spirit and yes, so handsome. I wish I knew something about his adult life. Did he have children and wife? Did he have a happy life? Wow! So many of us are not living as long as our parents. Too sad.

Gone, but Never Forgotten!

I was truly saddened when I received the news that another one of our beloved classmates had passed away. Many of us share fond memories of times spent with Davis. I remember the small group of young couples that strolled home from the movies at Esquire Theater on Broad and Olney; Sunday afternoon gatherings at my parent's home. These were 'the good ole' days, and I will forever cherish the memories (Davis, Raymond, Ian, Gregory White, Whylene Settles, Sissy and me (Sandra Brockington). 

Sorrowfully submited,

Sandra Brockington Gould
