'Bill' was a Shriner, a Mason, and a WW II vet. Very much a true 'southern gentleman', I learned more about life in the few years I rented the apartment in his attic than at any other point prior to that. A fine rep of the U. of Ga - he was a graduate from Athens and a big Bulldog fan. Bill retired as a U.S. Customs Agent. He owned a unique vehicle called a Davis which in fact was the 1st of 3 prototypes made for testing by the U.S. Army circa 1950; 17 passenger cars were also made by this firm. They all are considered today to be highly desired by collectors. The fact that this vehicle stayed with Bill or his family after his death probably saved it from fading off into a junkyard. There is a strange history associated with this car and the company which produced them - The Davis Motorcar company. Several websites detail this firm and one shows the current owners and how it's been restored to its original style.

A real American who lived a good life and showed many others what was most important in life. Truly missed but not forgotten.
