Not sure what to say?

I was very sad to hear that Doug Davis had passed. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Coach Davis was larger than life as he turned young boys into young men on and off the football field. He cared about his players and went out of his way to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. I am forever grateful for the many learning's and support that I received from him. Coach, may you rest in peace as your unbelievable work here on earth is complete.

Coach Doug touched the lives of so many during his years with us. I learned so much from him not only about football but also about being a better person. Thank you for the positive impact you had on my boys. Coach you were a giant of a man with an even bigger heart. May you rest in peace. You may be gone but never will you be forgotten.

I meant Doug in August 1994, 6 months after I lost my Father.

In the first 30 minutes of our meeting Doug may have said 10 words. How could I have known the deep respect I would have for you Doug.

The measure of a man is the respect that he earns. Doug was a man that earned more than the highest level of respect; he earned also the highest admiration from us, Doug’s soldiers. We are Doug’s Soldiers.

Doug didn't just teach us, his ways became the...

"Uncle Doug" as we knew him was a great man. He taught my husband Dwayne, his nephew, the importance of hard work and dedication to a job well done. It didn't matter if it was raking leaves or joining him as a salesman with his company. I always enjoyed hanging out with him on holidays and family functions. I learned quickly to give him back the crap he gave me :). Rest in peace Uncle Doug.

Coach Davis was a mountain of a man, not only in stature but in heart. He made a difference in my life. I will be forever thankful for having the pleasure of knowing him and his family. May you rest in peace. Your friend, David Bonis.

We will miss you Doug
