Obituary: Davis, Harold Lee
Harold Lee Davis passed away peacefully the morning of April 25, 2012.
“Hal” was born in Hot Springs, SD, but spent most of his life in the Pacific Northwest. He graduated from Kellogg High School in 1949, at age 16; and at age 17, he joined the Navy.
Hal served during the Korean War, earning a Korean Service Ribbon with four stars, a United Nations Service Ribbon, a Good Conduct Medal and a National Defense Service Medal.
Hal was a man of many talents and during his lifetime had worked as a mechanic, a roofer, a job counselor and after earning his college education, worked for the State of Washington for many years. He eventually worked in Risk Management, owning his own business from which he retired in 2000.
What Hal enjoyed most was fishing; and there is not a lake, river, stream or creek in the PNW that Hal has not pulled a fish from.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Kristeen and Deron Christy; his grandson, Cameron Christy; his son, Cory Davis and daughter-in-law, Allyson Shoshana.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 pm, on Tuesday, May 1st, 2012 at Spokane Cremation and Funeral, 2832 N. Ruby St.
