To the family of Dr. Joe Davis
As a retired Police Major from Miami-Dade Police I think that all of us in the Law Enforcement community have greatly benefited from Dr. Davis' contributions and lessons. In the late 1960's I served for a short 3 years in Homicide and personally benefited from his assistance. He always treated you like a professional colleague never condescending. More than once he came to a scene to sort out what I had considered as baffling.
In later years I enjoyed his stories of his experiences at various group luncheons and upon his move to Tallahassee he continued to share via email. I was fortunate to attend his tribute in early 2011.
Thanks Doc Davis for everything

Great One
The last time I saw you, you were leaving our house with our wonderful Barbie after a 4th of July celebration, made complete with your cannon.

I said, “Boss, this is the part I don't like.” You answered, “Leaving's a part of living, Bookm.” I guess you're right.

I can see you smiling, because you now know what's on the other side. You always were a step ahead of us.

Peace, my mentor, my friend.

A legacy of compassion, integrity and professional, public service that will live on in hearts and minds of all those who were privileged to be mentored by him. We will miss your physical presence, but your legacy is with us daily.

Dr. Davis, Thank you for taking time out of your very busy schedule to teach new FHP Traffic Homicide Investigators at the FHP Training Academy in Tallahassee. I was one of those new traffic homicide investigators. Your service to your country, the state of Florida, Dade County and many generations of law enforcement officers will be remembered with sincere respect and appreciation.

I spent 27 years as an officer and sergeant with what is now the Miami-Dade Police Department. Twenty of those years were spent in the Homicide Bureau. Dr. Joe Davis (referred to by a few close friends as "The Great One") was one of a kind. There are men and women all over this world that have studied and learned at the feet of Dr. Joe. He always had time for new detectives and was available anytime to answer questions. I could go on for pages trying to describe the impact Dr. Davis had on our lives and careers. Suffice it to say that there is a large hole left in the field of Forensic Medicine. Other professionals will undoubtedly leave more polished memories about Dr. Davis but he was one of a kind. I already miss him and his lovely wife. To Barbara and the rest of his family I thank you for the opportunity you gave me just over a year ago and I loved your father. RIP Dr. D.
