It brings us great comfort that before our father's passing we were able to honor him on 5/7 by establishing the Sam & Tamara Davis Family Scholarship, awarding 4 graduating high school seniors. Pouring into our community and making an impact in the lives of others was who our father was at his core. With that in mind, in lieu of flowers and other sentiments, we are requesting those who wish to be part of honoring his legacy to make a donation to the Sam & Tamara Davis Family Scholarship Fund. You can make checks payable to "Sam & Tamara Davis Family Scholarship" Mailed to: Sam & Tamara Davis Family Scholarship P.O. Box 59151 Pittsburgh, PA 15210
