Larry and Mary Davis personified
the heart and spirit of the roofing industry community.
Committed to supporting the professional standing
of roofing contractors, Larry promoted high standards
and believed that a well-educated membership was
key to the industry's future success. Founder
of State Roofing Company in Modesto, California,
Larry served as a director on the Western States
RCA Board of Directors and was active on several
committees, often flying to meetings with his
wife Mary in their private airplane. They perished
in a plane crash in 1995 when they were returning
from a committee meeting.
The Davis Memorial
Foundation is administered under the auspices
of the Western
States Roofing Contractors Association, which
is committed to promoting professionalism in the
roofing industry. Please
