  • Corky was a great friend. He will be greatly missed by all of us at The Rendezvous Lounge. I am comforted in knowing that he is with his beloved Susie and his dear friend Tom “Coach” Martin.

  • We really had many fun times in 4H while showing our horses. I am so very sorry for your loss, Jacque and Lynn and families. My prayers are with you.

  • I have warm memories of playing little league and high school baseball with Corky. He was always a positive, and fun guy to be around. I’d run into him occasionally after high school and always have a good conversation catching up on old times, and where we were at that point in our lives. Having lost my wife six years ago, I can relate to how he must have felt that year after his loss. It’s comforting to think that he is reunited with her today. May God bless his family.

  • Corky was one of our own and we were very fortunate to have been able to welcome him into our family. Many good times were had and enjoyed with him and Susie. Only consolation is that he is now in good health and at peace, spending time with his lovely wife again.

  • Lynn and Jacque,

    I am sorry to just find this out (Dec. 4). There are so many happy memories of the Davis family. Corky was never in my class, but his influence could be seen in many areas of BW High School. All will miss him.
