      SOLON -- Richard E. Davis, 74, died unexpectedly Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2006, at his home in Solon.

      He was born June 10, 1932, in Solon, the son of Isaac Franklin and Arra (Libby) Davis.

      Richard had been a lifelong resident of Solon, where he graduated from Solon High School with the class of 1950. He was an excellent athlete, who played basketball for Solon High School and semi-pro baseball for the Bingham Bears. He was also an avid outdoorsman who especially enjoyed hunting, gardening and working on his wood lots.

      He served with the army during the Korean War. Following discharge from the military, Richard returned to the place he always wanted to be: Solon. He was employed by the Maine State Department of Transportation for 37 years, and served many years on Solon's budget committee and the Solon Fire Department.

      He is survived by his companion, Arlene Tewksbury of Solon and her children and grandchildren; his sisters, Alice Heald of Solon, Arlene Meader and her husband, Everett, of Oakland, and Beverly Shaughnessy and her husband, Roy, of Skowhegan; a brother, Isaac Davis and his wife, Beverly, of West Gardiner; a sister-in-law, Jeannette Davis of Port Charlotte, Fla.; a special friend, John Dayhoof of Solon; many nieces, nephews, friends and fellow hunters in the Solon area.

      A funeral will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Solon Congregational Church, Main Street, Solon, with the Rev. Nathan T. Richards officiating. Interment will be in the Solon Village Cemetery.
