Dear Tom and Class of '68:
It is with great sorrow that I inform all of you of the death of my husband Paul V. Davis. He had been ill since March, 2004, but appeared to be doing very well this past fall. He passed away on November 5 after a sudden bout with infection.
I cannot tell you how difficult this has been for me and our son Mark. Paul was truly a follower of Christ and very concerned about people in need. He initiated a St. Vincent DePaul chapter at our church and also a program for housing and mentoring homeless families, with the goal of helping them get the skills necessary to succeed in life on their own. I know his background at Notre Dame contributed to his choosing to do this work. In fact, he often said that himself.
Paul was also very active in our parish, heading the building committee planning our new parish center and being deputy grand knight in the Knights of Columbus.
Please remember Paul and our family in your prayers.
