August 20, 1973

– July 8, 2010

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved son, Lance Trevor Davis on July 8, 2010 after a long and courageous battle against brain cancer. Born and raised on Salt Spring, Lance set out to see the world after graduation. He became an accomplished pilot, sailor, diver, ski instructor and charter boat captain. He made many cherished friends along the way.

Survived by his mother and father Ed and Jean Davis, brother Chad Williams, many cousins and extended family. We will all miss his quirky sense of humour and smiling, upbeat nature. He inspired us with his steadfast determination and amazing grace even in the face of insurmountable odds.

No service by request. Instead, Lance asked that those who would grieve his passing think of him when the surf’s up or when there is fresh snow on the Sierra Nevadas. His spirit is forever there.
