I met Bruce back in the late 60's in Sunday School and we hit it off right away. We became Best friends in High School and remained close friends ever since. I remember when we were trying to figure out what we wanted to do with our lives.  He told me the Air Force was where he wanted to go and I went too Trade School. He went and did his thing and enjoyed every minute of it from what he said to me. We spoke as much as we could while he served.....His brother Tony & I even visited him in Arizona, D-M Air Base in 1979.......When he was discharged we started to hang around together just like we did years ago before. Although he moved around some the last 12-15 years we tried to speak a few times a year. I was shocked when that phone call came the other night from Tony. Bruce will be terribly missed by Myself and my Family......Rest in Peace my Dear Friend,..... Till we meet again, My deepest Sympathy to the Davis/Mayo Family & all who knew him.

BRUCE DAVIS was a good friend of mine. I remember when he was assigned to B-Flight he took on ENROUTE CONCEPT very well. Being a RADAR Specialist he liked getting his hands greasy with the HYD, APG and JET TROOPS. One thing I will never forget was the nick name B-Flight gave him, (BERKOWITZ) from the SON of SAM murders from the late 70's. But for the record, he was well loved by all of us ENROUTER. He was a Good and fun loving person on and off duty. I have a good many memories of him during our weekends in Sachsenhausen, Deutscher CANTEEN after work get togethers, and our B-flight road trip TOURS in Germany like the fun one we had in KOLN GERMANY.  Last year I had the joy on two occasions to talk to him via telephone, prior to his passing. I wanted so much to see him again at the upcoming reunion since Stan and I had the ENROUTE BLOODHOUND UNITS searching for him for almost 10 years. I was honored to know that his family was very grateful for the photos I sent them of BRUCE during his USAF years at RHEIN MAIN AB GER. I will surely miss him.----------FIG
