His father was totally or- phaned before he was 10 years old, so Dick knew nothing of the Davis side of the family. While in the 8th grade, he and another student wrote a com- prehensive 4,000+ "History of Orting" and received an A+ for his journalistic ef- forts. Little did any- one realize this project would lead to many other journalis- tic endeavors in his life. Davis Each year, school was let out for a day so students could attend the West- ern Washington State Fair in a couple of towns over from Orting, Puyallup (pounced pew-al'-lup). Dick had been an avid radio lis- tener from during the War and had continued to do so. His favorite disc jockey played a combination of the mu- sic of the day - pop and country, which Dick enjoyed. The first year Dick attended the Fair, his favorite disc jockey, Bucky Ritchie of K-A-Y-O in Seattle was there to do a live remote broad- cast. While other students spent tb.eir time in riding the rides and watching the rodeo and horse races, Dick stood glued to Buck spinning his records and talking on the radio. He knew then he wanted to do the same thing one. day. He went home that night and could hardly sleep. The next morning Dick went out to the garage with a dirt floor, made a little broad- cast console by placing a board on several cement blocks, then took a pipe with an elbow on it, and drove it in the ground for his microphone. With an old radio face and knobs, this became his gauges and a garbage tin on each side of him became his turntables. A couple old beat-up records be- came his music. For hours he broadcast "to the world." Dick graduated from Miles S. Edgerton (Orting) Grade School in 1954. That fall he en- rolled in a private boarding high school in Owosso, Michigan, where he honed his speaking skills, already evident in grade school, and journalistic endeav- ors. On June 10, 1957, he raised his right hand in oath to defend the Constitution of the United States in the United States Air States Air Force. The same day he took his first airplane ride by flying from Seattle to San Anto- nio, Texas where he entered ba- sic training at Lackland Air Force Base. Another of his interests was in medicine, 'so he applied for, and was admitted to Medical School after Basic Training. Those students at the top of the Medical School class were sent to the United States Naval Hospital Corps School at the Training Base in North Chicago, Illinois for a more extensive, four month's training. Because of the long hours in the classroom and many hours of homework, study, and memoriza- tion students were urged to get March 4, 2014 D Lordsburg City Council P0,,t,0n. on the Ball0t) I1B Pack BUD, BUDLIGHT & _.

With the North Shore Limited rail- road tracks outside the gate, this became Dick's means to the out- side world as he would ride the train to Chicago or more often, to Milwaukee. Having completed medical training, Dick was first assigned to the Ob/Gyn Wing at the hospi- tal at Dyess Air Force Base, Abilene, Texas He often said, "I barely knew the facts of life and they sent there to catch new- borns!" Later he worked in the surgical unit and surgical recov- ery ward. In December, he was sent to Ernest Harmon Air Force Base at Stephenville~ in the Ca- nadian Province of Newfound- land. It was here he was person- ally picked by the Hospital Commander to be the personal Medic to Presi- dent Dwight D. Eisenhower and later to Queen Elizabeth II and family when they visited his base.. In his off-duty Virginia G. hours he worked for the base ra- dio Station, V-O-H-F. While per- forming his duties at the station he interviewed Elvis Presley who was on his way from Germany for discharge from the US Army. In Spring, 1960, he was hand-picked by the same Hospi- tal 'Commander to enter a tempo- rary duty assignment in Greenland where there were no doctors or nurses. He was the en- tire medical staff. Upon his honorable dis- charge from the Air Force, Dick worked in Surgery at Swedish Hospital in Seattle and as an EMT for Shepard Ambulance - the leading ambulance company while attegding the late Puget Sound Bible Institute. His bi-vocational ministry experience took him from Seattle to Oregon, California, back to Washington, Hawaii, California, Nebraska, Arkansas, Pennsylva- nia and New Mexico. During this period of time, he often worked in simultaneous vocations of be- ing a radio disc jockey personal- ity, television program host, jour- nalist/editor/writer, public rela- tions person, and pastor/minister. He is the founding senior pastor of Lord's Living Water Light- house in Lordsburg, New Mexico.
