Dr. Armisted was a great man who gave much of himself to improve the way Doctors practice Optometry both yesterday and today. His legacy will continue. He exhibited an unfailing dedication to good choice. Choices that caused him to touch others kindly. He caused us to think better thoughts, be our best selves and burn more brightly.

A great leader in our profession of optometry. He will be missed but has left a wonderful legacy that few will ever compare.

Desiree & I are deeply saddened by the passing of one of Optometry Family's great leaders. Davis was a true gentleman in the highest sense and a friend to everyone who knew him. His caring and compassion helped so many in his practice, in his community and across Texas over the many years and through that compassion, his legacy will live on. We will miss him immensely.

When I was going to be sworn in as President of the Texas Optometric Assn, Davis, in his usual way, asked if he could be of any help. It turns out I was dressed in my tux but the bow tie was missing. Davis stepped right up and went in search of a bow tie. He saw one on the bartender and proceeded to buy the man's bowtie. The evening was saved! I still have that bowtie and think of him evey time I wear it.

With Love, Ron & Desiree Hopping

Thinking of you and your family...

Right after I graduated from Tom S Lubbock High School Dr. Armistead hired me as his secretary. The year was 1956 and I was still just 17. I remember typing letters that had to do with the Metthodist Church. He was determined to turn that little Baptist girl into a Methodist. I went by to see him when visiting my parents to tell him it finally happened. I married a Methodist, we became very active in church in Waco and that I even got to cast a vote at Jurisdictional Conference for Dr. Chess Lovern for bishop. He thought that was pretty funny! I've thought of him and of Cora often. I still have a picture of them aty wedding reception at Ford Memotial Chapel when I married 56 years ago this past February. You don't forget someone such as him. Rest in peace my friend.
