Not sure what to say?

My sympathies to the family. His Honor was one of my favorite judges. Judge Davila was a good man, a better prosecutor, and a fabulous judge. He wanted ALL the facts in a case and would not hear bovine feces. It was my honor to have been involved in cases in his courts.

Prayers for peace and comfort for Judge Davila and his family. May you find comfort in knowing that Judge Davila was loved and respected by everyone that had the pleasure of working with him. He was a true humanitarian. Judge Davila was a fair, kind, and compassionate man who took his responsibility seriously. He always attempted to help people in an effort to ensure that he would not see them in his courtroom again as a defendant. Judge Davila was a knowledgeable Criminal Law Professor...

To the Davila family, i am so sorry to hear about the passing of Judge Davila. He was an inspiration and encourager to so many of us at ODAR in Richmond and in some instances like a father. He will be deeply missed. While i've moved onto another office I still tell the stories of him. He will be missed. I'm praying that in all that god will continue to encamp his arms of love around you during this time

I just recently heard of the passing of Judge Davila. I worked with him when he was ALJ for the Social Security Administration. He was a kind and gentle person. He was highly regarded. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family in their time of sorrow.

My Friendship with Joe began at TJ in 1952, and it endured for all the intervening years. His easy smile, love of a good joke, and expressed love for Friends and Family, make this loss a deep one. I will miss him for the rest of my life.
My thoughts and prayers are with his Family in their time of sorrow.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of Judge Davila. I had many cases before him in District and Circuit Courts in Richmond. He was always a fair and just jurist! I too was a Marine in Vietnam, and they say "all Marines go to heaven to guard the gates". I will meet you there "your honor", and I guess not only will you be guarding the gates but you can assist the Lord in judging who gets in!! Semper Fi!! Retired RPD

I had the honor to work with Judge Davilia as his and Judge Dulings Chief Deputy in the General District court for almost 5 years and can say he was a true and compassonate man as well as a judge of great character and understanding. Some did not like his decisions but in all actuality they were fair. He and Judge Duling were one of my greatest supporters especially when the late Sheriff Winston wanted to fire me but they both met with the Sheriff and requested that I not be let go and remain...
