Frank Davies passed away peacefully at Tidewell Hospice Center on Aug. 23 with his loved ones near him. Frank was from Palm Beach, Fla., and graduated from the Asheville School for Boys in North Carolina and Williams College in Massachusetts. He served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy during World War II, including a secret mission to transfer ships to the Soviet Union in the Aleutian Islands and later on a minesweeper in the Pacific. After the war, he worked in advertising in New York City. He moved back to Florida and worked in commercial real estate on the Florida east coast before transferring to Sarasota in 1972. He later owned and worked in travel agencies for many years. In Sarasota, he earned a Master SCUBA Diver's license, taught diving and dove all over the world. His last dive was in Jamaica at age 75. He is survived by his long-time companion, Edmonia Davies of Sarasota, three sons, a daughter, three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The family wants to thank Tidewell Hospice for its caring service. Services will be private. Arrangements by All Veterans-All Families Funerals & Cremations.
