Remembering Louis Davenport

Yesterday I had the privilege of walking with some Friends of the Davenport to remember on his death day, Louis Davenport, who left behind the Davenport Hotel.

It was a glorious day for the short stroll in Riverside Memorial Park. And it was refreshing to see how simple Davenport's gravesite looks.

He didn't need a huge monument in death, explained Dennis Murphy, president of Heritage Funeral Home because “his monument is the hotel.”

Davenport “checked out” of life July 28, 1951.
