"What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains immortal." - Albert Pike

Dad apparently touched a few lives along the way, and I know that he would be so honored at your tributes to him. Thank you all so very much.

Mr Daves was my Cadet Corps Leader and Shop Teacher from 1960 to 1962. I remember the Drill Team meets, rifle matches and Cadet Balls as if they were yesterday after 50 plus years. But what I remember and cherish the most are Mr Daves abilities to lead and guide young teens into productive and responsible adult lives. His affect on me personally lead to a military career and later to a life of public service. It has been my privilege and honor to have know and been guided by this man. My deepest respect to you Mr Ed Daves!

Many memories have been shared with you already about Uncle Ed. One that I may have "missed" is when he was the Cadet Corps Leader at Fort Miller Junior High School. We would go to the Fresno Memorial Auditorium to watch hundreds of cadets from various schools complete their "planned precision drills" by school, and then we would watch them listen to commands, and be eliminated one by one. You could hear a pin drop since the cadets were listening to the commands, and completing them. I remember that only the "clicking" of the rifles was audible. I know that one year, Fort Miller was the only junior high school ever to be represented in the State Final. (According to my "1957 Outrider" (aka Yearbook), there were 165 cadets in the Corps.) Uncle Ed was delighted with their accomplishments--the discipline and precision were amazing.

On a sadder note, I remember that my Dad took us to Uncle Ed and Aunt Edna's after my Mother had a C-section on December 28, 1955. Our baby brother lived only 12 hours because of underdeveloped lungs. (Herb and Lois were at your parents' house, but it was "fine" with all of them that we came.) Your Dad's quiet compassion was felt without his having to "speak" a word.

My mom and dad, Rudy and Jeanne Giannoni had many nice memories of both your parents especially time spent at Cayucos. Dad has enjoyed sharing he and your dad's WWII experiences as POW's and being a part of the Fresno Ex-POW Chapter for many years together. I know my dad is planning to come to Ed's service. May your family be blessed with many happy memories of your dad. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Warm regards,
