John's passing is a tragic shock to everyone. Last July, he came to the West/Ross Family Reunion three times in two days. He always came to see our mom (John's aunt), Betty Lou (Davis) West. Our mom is the only surviving child of Charles and Zoe Davis. She is the sister of John's father, Paul Davis. John made it a point to visit with mom every year when she came to McCreary County for the reunion. He was always full of life, laughter, and as many entertaining stories as you'd care to listen to. But he never said a bad word about anybody. There is no question that he was an expert historian concerning the Davis family history. John could recount names, dates, personalities, and even take you to the long abandoned mining camps, farms, or homesteads where Davis family events had taken place as far back as the late 1800's. He was a gifted outdoorsman, a staunch veteran, and a great cousin. I always looked up to him. John will be missed by everyone who knew and loved him. All the lives he touched will be lessened by his passing but strengthened by the memories he leaves. Allen West, Riverview, FL
