Known as Herky to his close friends and family, I considered him as my other brother.  Knew him since I was six.  My brother, sister and I miss him.

Ah yes, Herky Davis. Have not heard that name in a long time. After I graduated in 63 I went into the Air Force and one time in Tech school, Chanute Air Base, IL. Were were having the base Bands play on a flat bed truck out side the Chow Hall. I was up there rocking out and look down in the croud and there was Herky. I had to skip a few chords as I waved.
