John Davis passed away peacefully on April 22, 2013, after a long illness. John retired from the US Fish & Wildlife Service and had served as Project Leader at the Savannah Coastal Refuges Complex from 1974 until 1996.
Nancy Davis, John's beloved wife of 59 years, has requested that in lieu of flowers, remembrances take the form of donations
in John's name to the Friends group. Condolences can be sent to Nancy at 3 Abbott Lane, Savannah, GA, 31411. There will be no local funeral service.
Nancy and John were charter Life Members of the Friends, making their contribution in the very lean early days of the group when their Benefactor Level donation meant a lot to us. They both made a point of being in attendance and demonstrating their support when the new Savannah NWR Visitor Center opened in March, 2010.
