Eric Albert Davis of Humboldt, SK, died peacefully at home on March 4, 2019, with his loving wife, Dorothy at his side. He was 83 years of age. Eric was born on October 10, 1935, to Ace and Emma (nee Sherven) Davis at the Naicam Nursing Home, in Naicam, SK. He attended Lewis Lake School until the family moved to LeRoy, SK, when his father Ace took over the LeRoy Hotel. In 1950 the family moved to Stouffville, ON, where Eric took his Grade 9. In 1952 the family moved back to Naicam. Eric went to work in Alberta at the Cold Lake Air Base in 1955. In 1957 he joined the Air Force in Clinton, ON, but was later discharged in December 1957 and moved back to Naicam. In December 1958 he met Dorothy Rosen, and they were married in St. Joseph’s Church at Saskatoon, SK, on August 13, 1960. In the spring of 1962, Eric and Dorothy took over the family farm where they remained until August 2012. Eric was very proud to have kept the farm in the family for over 100 years, 50 of which he and Dorothy raised their children and spent countless hours entertaining family, friends, and of course all the grandchildren. Family and family history were very important to Eric and he loved to tell stories of days gone by. Eric was involved in many community organizations and was very active in several sports over the years, hockey and ball to name a few. He made many great friends over the years.
