Gary Davis, Unites States Air Force Veteran

Gary Davis was born April 18, 1943 and passed away on October 2, 2011 at the age of 68. He lived in Leander, Texas at the time of his death.

Gary proudly served his country in the United States Air Force and achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant during his enlistment. His service included duty in Vietnam.

Gary was a cowboy who enjoyed cowboy shopping, target shooting with pistols and eating tender vittles. Gary was dog lover, and loved his dogs.

Interment services were held at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Killeen, Texas on October 5, 2011. In attendance were the Patriot Guard Riders who formed a line of American flags around the committal shelter as military honors were rendered.

At the request of the family, taps was not played. The Air Force Honor Guard carefully folded the American flag that covered the casket into the traditional triangle. The folded flag was presented to Gary's dear wife, Connie, on behalf of the President of the United States, the Department of the Air Force, and a grateful nation for the faithful and dedicated service of S.Sgt Gary Davis.

Gary Davis was then laid to rest on the gentle slope of the cemetery, as the American flag flew at half-staff, in his honor, at the top of the hill.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, a daughter, many other dear family and friends, and his fellow members of the Williamson County Cowboy Church.
