Winston Arlington Davis passed away Dec. 14, 2004 in Spokane. WA. Dad was born in 1912 in Candy, Oregon to Elizabeth Olsen and Sydney Davis.

He spent WWII duty north of London, England. Upon his return to Ritville, he married the love os his life Jane Heimbigner in 1946. He returned to the military service in 1948 with the newly formed U.

The following words by Joseph Epstein summarized Dad's lesson to us. "We do not choose to be born, We do not choose our parent, or our times or country of birth, or the circumstances of our upbringing. We do not-most-choose to die. But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live- Courageously or in cowardice, honorably or dishonorably, with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial, what makes ue significant is what we do or refuse to do. We decide and we choose and so we give definition to ourselves.

Thanks Dad for you good choices.
