Thomas Earl (Tom) Davis is the oldest child of four born to 13th or 14th generation immigrants to America. Tom’s Dad, Earl, was a professed but unaffiliated Quaker and his Mother, Inez, an orphaned last child of German (Pennsylvania Dutch)/Irish ancestry.
Early in life Tom was imbued with the work ethic and proceeded through a multitude of jobs. Tom’s efforts included but were not limited to newspaper boy, janitor, stock boy, truck driver, gandy dancer, marine wiper, messenger, soldier, salesman, dentist, dental educator, and family man. That’s quite enough for one lifetime.
