OKLAHOMA CITY (KOCO) — Saturday was an emotional day for the Oklahoma City Fire Department as the community remembered the life of Maj. Andy Davis, who died from COVID-19 on Christmas Eve.
An especially emotional moment during the celebration of life ceremony for the 20-year Oklahoma City Fire Department veteran was when letters from his children were read and his son Beau spoke. One major message throughout the ceremony was that Davis might be gone but he and his legacy will be remembered forever.
“To my first baseball coach and to my dad, this is me letting you know that I love you and I thank you for being my dad,” Beau Davis said.
Somber moments as all in attendance remembered Davis. He was described as a man who loved his family, cherished his colleagues, and was funny, fearless and hard working.
“The sense of his family is what made Andy a great firefighter,” Oklahoma City Fire Chief Richard Kelley said. “The ultimate sacrifice that Andy made will never be forgotten as his dedication and commitment to his city and fellow firefighters embodies the character traits of an incredible human being.
“Lisa, thank you for sharing Andy with us and allowing him to change so many lives.”
