More detail on this person: On September 5, 2013 my brother and fellow Army Aviator Daniel J. Davies, 62, passed away at Fairfield Medical Center in Lancaster, Ohio. He had been ill for more than a year but never stopped the fight and enjoyed life to the fullest. To those of us who knew Dan would have expected nothing less. As a fellow aviator in the Ohio National Guard the two of us flew together a lot. Some referred to us as the dynamic duo. To me he was one of the finest pilots I had ever flown with and I trusted him as no other. In the Ohio Guard Dan made many friends and each has a special story about an adventure they had experienced with him. Yes, there was never a dull minute around him and the silence in his absence is so very noticeable.

He was born October 24, 1950 in Columbus Ohio to the late, Robert and Marilyn (Timmons) Davies. Dan and I went to Ohio University together and were in business together for many years manufacturing homes made with Structural Insulated Panels. In fact we were the early pioneers of that industry and have the arrows in our backs to prove it. Dan served in the US Army during Vietnam and in the Army National Guard retiring as a CW4 after 34 years of service. He finished his career working for the State of Ohio. Daniel will be missed by family, friends and colleagues who have had the pleasure to be associated with him during his lifetime. Daniel is survived by his wife Peggy Davies, daughters, Danielle (Brent) Siders and Carrie Rhonemus; sisters, Cathy (Richard) Hockenberry and MaryAnn (Richard) Starner; brothers, Robert Davies and Kenny (Dee) Davies; grandchildren, Emilee Siders, Layne, Kalley and Leah Rhonemus.
