Edward William Davis

William, as he preferred to be called, was born in Wasco, Ca to his parents Edward and Donna Davis. His family later moved to Taft, where he spent his childhood and high school years, graduating with the class of 1985. William met his future wife, Monica Serna, in High School, and they spent 26 years together, living in Ventura and San Diego, Ca, two of William’s most beloved locations. He later moved back to Taft and eventually settled down in Maricopa with his sister where William made a masterpiece of their yard with beautiful blooming plants and greenery all around. William was in search of his perfect day, where his problems were all left alone, just a perfect day where he could forget himself.
