What a lucky day for us when Wayne and Marge bought our first house!. We instantly bonded with them 42 years ago. Wayne and Earl were almost like brothers, always picking on each other. How fortunate for me that Wayne hired me at the old Robinson Elem. School and allowed me to follow him to Middletown Elem. In five weeks we have lost two of our dearest friends. We now hold Scott and Michael close in love and prayer as we do Lisa and Terry.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Family Members, Judy and I are so saddened at the passing of Wayne and Marge. It was our pleasure to know them and work with them in the Lions organization. I worked with Wayne for a number of years when we trained incoming district governors in West Virginia. What a kind and gentle person he was with a good sense of humor. I will miss him greatly. Please know that Judy and I have your family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult times in your lives.

Mr. Davis was a great principal. I remember him and Mrs. Norman getting pies thrown into their faces by us students. Or the time they went up into the air to see all of us students standing in the shape of an M. He will be missed by many. Praying for his family and friends.

This just breaks my lose both Wayne and Marge is hard to comprehend!!! Besides being awesome Lions that were really good folks.  They were always working together here on earth and now their Heavenly journey together begins until we all meet them again. Sending lots of hugs to heaven for you both.
Pam Plasters left a message on October 21, 2016:
Scott, for years, my mom and dad (Jack and Jean Turner) told me stories about their Lion adventures with Wayne and Marge Davis and what wonderful people they were. It all made sense to me when I had the opportunity to work with him as he helped us out at Armel Elementary School during a year of overcrowding and new administration. He kept us smiling every day that year. His funny stories of his years at Middletown kept us laughing. I will never forget that school year. Now I have my own stories to tell about Mr. Wayne Davis. Prayers for you and Michael during this difficult time.

To The Family of Wayne and Marge: I am so deeply sorry for your loss. The Lions of the world have also lost 2 hard-working, wonderful Lions. Wayne and Marge have had impacts on people's lives that they didn't even realize--particularly mine. They were the epitome of Lions mentors in teaching how to serve our communities. Our Lions world has lost 2 of its finest, but I am so thankful that I got to experience their friendship, wisdom and kindness. Their lives were the perfect examples of service to mankind. We are going to miss them so much. Please know that all of you are in the thoughts and prayers of thousands of Lions around the world. Rita Spiess / South Carolina

I can still remember him at Middletown Elementary during our spirt assemblies with the spirit pencil trying to see which grade had the most spirit. He will be truly missed.

We have lost two great friends in a very short period on time. The world is a better place because of the work they did for their fellow man. Comfort can be taken knowing Wayne and Marge are together again. May the light you gave to others never end.

Donna (Gum) Gray left a message on October 21, 2016:
Mr. Davis was Principal at the old Middletown Elementary School in 1976 when I completed grade school and then Principal to my son years later at the new Middletown school. I have fond memories of his kindness and warm smile. As an adult I would run into him and he still knew my name after all these years as well as my sons. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Our community has lost a great man....
Lynda DuBose left a message on October 21, 2016:
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Wayne Davis. He was principal of the "old" Middletown Elementary School when I worked there during my very first year as a Frederick County librarian. He was always kind and funny and helpful, and I have so much respect for him. I can't remember a time when he wasn't sharing that mischievous smile of his. It calmed a new, nervous librarian every time. Rest In Peace, my friend. You will be missed!
Cindy left a message on October 21, 2016:
Dear Cousin, May you enjoy peace and contentment with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and your loving wife Marge! I will miss you both!
Anita C. Thomas left a message on October 21, 2016:
So sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. I was a teacher working in the later 1970's at the old Middletown and Stephens City elementary schools. I was a Yankee from Philly who married a man doing graduate studies at Virginia Tech out of the Winchester Fruit Research Lab. I was a fish out of water, but Wayne was very supportive through those years. His stories always brought a smile to my face. Rest in Peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Scott & Michael Sunita & I are saddened to learn about the sad demise of PID Lion Wayne E. Davis. May God’s blessings and memories of your loving Father give you strength & comfort during this difficult time. We sincerely share your grief and convey our heartfelt condolences on this sad bereavement.
Naresh Aggarwal left a message on October 21, 2016:
A bright light of Lionism has just passed away and become a star in the sky. It is difficult to comprehend that PID Wayne and his wife Marge have left us in such a short period of time. Not long ago, Lion Wayne led our organization as International Director. Both his wife Marge and himself were the perfect Lions couple, who inspired everyone to live a higher form of life. He spent 42 of his 70 years, essentially all his adult life, in the pursuit of making the world a better place. While we will always miss him, we will carry on his message with our work every day.
Somsakdi and Somran Lovisuth left a message on October 21, 2016:
Dear Davis Family, We were very sorry to hear about the recent terribly sad loss of Wayne. We know he will be sorely missed. Please accept our deepest condolences at this most difficult time. We will keep your family in our prayers. Yours sincerely, PID Somsakdi and Somran Lovisuth
Donna Weiler left a message on October 21, 2016:
Wayne, I met you at the 24-C Winter Conference in 2000 when you were running for VDG. You couldn't understand why you had to make me a birthday cake, but at the time it was a tradition in 24-C. I loved the cake and spending two years with you and Marge as you served as Vice District Governor and District Governor in 2001-2002. So many memories, from the thunder storm at the LCI International Convenion in Indianapolis where we were drenched wearing our colonial costumes to you always singing "Oh Donna" when ever we met. You were an outstanding Lion and I can't say enough for Lion Marge. She helped me so much during your DG Year. 2001-2002 was a year I will always remember and cherish. I was so thankful for being a Lion spouse that year. You were a fellow pin trader. I recall sitting on the floor to 4 am in the morning at your home looking at Lions Club Pins with you. We both had a passion for pins. One of things that bonded us. I will miss your smile and singing our song in my ear. Scott, you had two wonderful parents. I thank God each and every day for the time Hauser and I spent with your family. We love you and are here for you. All my love, PDG Donna Weiler

Lions Marge and Wayne are now together in heaven as they were always on earth. Our loss and heaven's gain. You were such an inspiration to every Lion you encountered. Scott, we had the great privilege of seeing you grow up. You were always part of the trio at every Lion's event and so proud of your parents. Our hearts go out to you at this unbelievable and sad time. We truly cherish and mourn the loss of your parents and our dear friends.
Shirley and Roy Wilson left a message on October 21, 2016:
Our hearts are broken! Truly top ambassadors for Lions and true friends to us! As they were always truly one on earth, they will continue this way in heaven! Scott, we gave been so privileged to be with you on numerous occasions while growing up. You were always at your Mom and Dad's side, cheering them on. Our loss is huge and yours is even greater. Our hearts go out to you and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Shirley and Roy Wilson
Jean left a message on October 21, 2016:
I haven't known Wayne and Marge for very long, I met them through the Lions club. I just want to say what a privilege it was to have known them and I can remember both their smiling faces and just how friendly they always were to me. What wonderful people and so sad to hear of the loss of both of them.

PDG Lion Richard A. Evans left a message on October 20, 2016:
It was a great pleasure knowing Wayne and his wife Marge, they were the true meaning of what Lionism was about, always ready to help where needed, always volunteering to do different task in the Lions of Virginia Southwestern Medical Project. He will be surely missed. I know he and Marge and others that went before them will be setting up a great Lions Club in Heaven.
Jennifer McKee Jolliffe left a message on October 20, 2016:
Scott and family though i have never meet you my heart breaks for you. I joined Lions International when i was very young and being a female before several of the clubs would even allow females in. Lion Wayne and Marge both supported me and never made me feel any different than others they knew. My age was never an issue and they supported me and encouraged me to go on through Lions. They were very helpful after my father was diagnosed with cancer and after he passed away by coming to Grundy to help with the RAM clinics there for a few years and Wayne was always there when I had questions. Kayden would always ask if she would get to see Mr Wayne at Lions events she attended as well. He knew she loved to collect the Lions pins so he always made sure she got the latest and best ones he had lol. Please let us know if you need anything. Even if its just a shouder to cry on.
PDG Sandi Halterman, District 22-C left a message on October 20, 2016:
What a wonderful and giving man Past International Director Wayne was, always giving in Lionism which you can tell was his passion. He gave so much to our Organization. I will always remember him at lions seminars and at the National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. with his patriotic sunglasses. He will be missed by many, especially lions. RIP friend Wayne, with your beloved Marge.
Emily Carnes and Chuck Fields left a message on October 20, 2016:
Lions Marge and Wayne always took time to take a call, answer a question, proof a letter or simply be there - Marge with her smile, Wayne with his impressions of some other fun loving inspirational human being like John Wayne or breaking out in song. Our prayers are with each of you in the Davis Family as we all share in this huge loss in our lives. Chuck and Emily
Brian & Patricia Stevenson left a message on October 20, 2016:
in the last two months, Patricia and I have lost two dear friends - Marge & Wayne Davis - we enjoyed hosting them in Alberta following the Seattle International Convention for a wonderful 10 days, and then in our winter residence in Arizona the following year, and then in Las Vegas, where we saw Jersey Boys and sang their songs for a week. What a loss for the Virginia Lions and Lions Clubs International! An outstanding couple who left us far to soon. Rest in Peace, dear friends.
Sandy Musallam left a message on October 20, 2016:
Wayne E. Davis was a great example of the greatest human being. I had the privilege of knowing him when he served as officer of the Board of Directors of LCI and beyond. He will be my inspiration to become a better person, to show compassion, generosity, and give to others without condition. Rest in peace dear ID Wayne E. Davis, your place in heaven is reserved for you, may your life be eternal!
