Advocate of VFW is honored on his 80th birthday
By Tom Young

Earlier this month, approximately 100 friends and relatives gathered at the Delmar VFW to surprise George Davis on his 80th birthday.
His wife, Joan, really did a good job keeping it a secret because when he came through the door, the look on his face told it all.
Davis had a stroke eight years ago and cannot walk or speak, but seems to understand everything you say, and it showed as he buzzed around the room in his wheelchair laughing and shaking hands with everyone.
There was food and music, but I am sure that the thing that meant the most to him was seeing everyone at the affair.
After returning to Delmar following his discharge from the Marines in 1946, he was instrumental in seeing that the original VFW home constructed.
Since that time, the VFW has been a big part of his life as he has served this organization both on the local and state level in many capacities right up to the time of his stroke.
Davis helped the VFW take a larger part in Delmar's community activities, especially with the town's young people as they sponsored teen dances and Little League activities.
He was a good athlete himself, so it was easy for him to work with these kids.
Davis is a charter member of the VFW, one of the organizers of Delmar Little league, and former "Delmar Railroader."
And he's Delmar's Number One "Dodger" fan, but townspeople won't hold that against him.
Happy Birthday, Ducky!"
