GEORGE O. DAVIS, JR. George O. Davis Jr., age 79,

GEORGE O. DAVIS, JR. George O. Davis Jr., age 79, a 29 year resident of Bullhead City, died on Saturday, March 12, 2011, in Bullhead City, Ariz. of natural causes while looking forward to his 80th birthday. He was born on April 29, 1931, raised in Los Angeles, Calif., and graduated from Montebello High School in 1948. After graduation, he entered the U.S. Air Force and served in South Japan for three of the four-year enlistment, including one year during the Korean War. He attended Pasadena City College, and worked as a draftsman and machinist while raising four children in LaPuente, Calif. He was a member of the West Covina Jaycees, and served as President in 1960-63, where one of his major accomplishments was getting the F-86D Saberjet placed in Palmview Park in West Covina to be used as playground equipment for children. In 1964, he moved his family to Indiana to manage the Engineering Dept. of a store fixture manufacturer. He returned to Covina, Calif., before moving his family to Bullhead City in 1969, where he worked at Katherine Landing. His oldest son, George III, graduated with the first class at Mohave High School in 1971. In 1972 until 1982, he moved back to Los Angeles, worked for a large lighting manufacturing company, and was promoted to plant manager. He married Barbara in 1977, and they opened Bullhead Lighting in the Marina Plaza in 1981. After the plant closure in 1982, they moved to Bullhead City permanently. During that time he was also a business partner in Southwest Tank and Supply, and an auto repair business. He served the community as President of the Marina Merchants Association, Director of the BHC Chamber of Commerce, and he was a member of the BHC Rotary Club. He had many hobbies, including building radio-controlled airplanes and cars, wood-working, and building his and Barbara’s house - including BBQ’s and natural rock retaining walls. He loved gardening, camping, fishing, boating, and off-road trips, as well as having fires in the fire pit. He was an avid reader and history buff, and loved debating politics. He could fix almost anything! He was proud to say he could speak three languages: “English, sarcasm and profanity.” He was preceded in death by his parents, George Sr. and Pauline Davis; his sister, Ruth Malloy; two grandsons, Billy and Justin (who was one of twelve killed in a helicopter crash while training at Nellis AFB in 1998). He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Barbara; four plus two children; six granddaughters; five great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and three of his nine Whippet pals. Family and friends gathered at his home on March 19, 2011, for a celebration of his life. His bantering, humor and stories are already greatly missed.

H. Douglas Heinrichs

H. Douglas Heinrichs was taken from us much too soon on March 21, 2011. Born 1942 in Shawnee, Oklahoma, first son of Walter and Jean Heinrichs, Doug was raised around the country in several places that are now ghost towns before ending up in Tucson. He loved fishing near Grand Lake, Colorado and on the East Fork of the Black River here in Arizona. He even tied his own fishing flies. Doug was also a true woodworking craftsman, making clocks, bowls and numerous other odds and ends. A big teddy-bear of a man, Doug was an All-State football player for Catalina High School Class of 1961. He went on to play for Eastern Arizona J.C, the UofA and even had a brief stint with the Denver Broncos. Doug is survived by his loving wife and business partner, Barbara; son, Ty (Christie), daughter, Alma (Jeff Fisher) of Missouri and son, Ian of Mesa, Arizona. He is also survived by his father, Walter (Rosella); brother, Fred (Mary) of Tucson and six much loved grandchildren. He will be sorely missed by his family and many friends. A Memorial and celebration of Doug's life will be held at Grace Community Church, 9755 N. La Cholla Blvd. in Tucson at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 2, 2011.

William Thomas "WT" Harrison

William Thomas "WT" Harrison 85, born on May 15, 1925 in Cleveland, MS passed away on March 15, 2011 of natural causes at his current home in Tucson, Arizona. He is survived by his beloved wife, Mary Jean Harrison of 64 years, five children, Mary Kaehler, Brad Harrison, Jack Harrison, Eve Bentley and Susan Harrison; 11 much-loved grandchildren, 12 precious great- grandchildren. He is also survived by brother, George Harrison and "Sis" Barbara Andrews of Cleveland, MS. Family and close friends gathered at his home on March 20, 2011 in celebration of his life, listening to his vast music collection, walking down memory lane, looking at many happy times captured in family pictures, and enjoying his backyard desert paradise by the pool. Dad spent his entire life nurturing and protecting all living things that came into his path—family, friends, stray animals and any seed that he could put into a pocket and poke into the soil. Because of his love for weak and helpless animals, we ask that donations be made in his name to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Arrangements by HUDGEL'S SWAN FUNERAL HOME.
