Lawmakers Remember Rep. Mike Davis

October 4th, 2007 by flanews

The House chamber was almost full Thursday afternoon, as lawmakers gathered for a memorial ceremony to remember Naples Representative Mike Davis.  The 60-year-old lawmaker died last month at age 60, after battling cancer for months.  Fellow House members recalled Davis’s love of motorcycles and fast cars, and highlighted his work for affordable housing.

“He was, in fact, a difference maker.  His wife, Patricia, is also a difference maker.  She’s in our school system in Naples and we all know how school teachers are in fact, angels,” said Rep. Garrett Richter of Naples.  “Mike loved his son, Christian, and he loved his daughter, Mia.  They will also be difference makers because of his leadership.”

Gov. Charlie Crist and other top state leaders also attended the 50-minute ceremony.  Lawmakers passed a resolution honoring Davis.
