Carl LeRoy Davis, Veteran
USMC, USMCR –
Marshfield, Missouri – 11-03-20
ABOUT THE MISSION:
The Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) have been honored with a request from the family of Carl. L. Davis, a US Marine Corp Veteran, for a final salute, and an escort to our hero’s final resting place at the Ebenezer Cemetery, east of Marshfield, where we will stand a flag line while full military honors will be rendered. Hero Davis entered the USMC upon turning the age of 17 before graduating high school and faithfully spent 3 years active duty and 3 years of reserve duty earning the rank of Corporal. His primary MOS was 0811, that of a Field Artillery Batteryman and earned the Good Conduct Medal. Later in life, hero Davis worked in various civilian jobs including working as a surveyor and for a paving company. After marriage, our hero started working for the Nebraska Depart of Roads and worked for them for over 40 years, eventually becoming a project chief, retiring in 2008. He enjoyed ‘putzing’ around his garage, listening to Husker football, reading the Sunday paper and watching westerns. He was a practical joker and was known for pranking his co-workers and always cracking himself up. His standard good bye to family and friends was “Well, God bless, love ya lots”.
