Gene Davis To Be Remembered March 16

A celebration of life for Gene Davis will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 at Hatchet Creek in Gainesville, Fla. Gene passed away on Jan. 26 after a brief illness. Gene was a jumper in local, regional and national competitions and always gave us a thrill. He was a senior judge and was a very sought-after technical controller for record tournaments, including the Masters, Nationals and World Championships. He was chair of the American Water Ski Associationís Technical Committee for many years and was instrumental in bringing technical standards up to their current standards and taught many the tricks of the trade. He served the AWSA Southern Region as executive vice president for many years and then moved on to become a director and president of AWSA.

Hatchet Creek is located at 11908 NE State Road 26 in Gainesville, Fla. It is located approximately 5-1/2 miles east of the Gainesville Regional Airport entrance and 2 miles east of the intersection of State Road 222 (also known as NE 39th Avenue) and State Road 26.

Casual attire is encouraged. Please feel free to wear any Gator, vintage car, water ski, patriotic, Disney or Hawaiian shirt to honor Gene.
