Memorial Service Planned For Larry Davis, 61

Feb 7, 2006

 A memorial service for former Los Angeles Times photojournalist Larry Davis is planned for Saturday, March 4, at 2 p.m. at 1107 First Ave. in Seattle, WA. Davis, 61, died January 19 when he took his own life near Lake Washington on the two-year anniversary of spreading his late wife's ashes along the same shoreline. Davis's wife, Bertha Jo Hagfors ("B.J."), died in 2004 after a long battle with cancer.

After the Saturday memorial service, friends and mourners plan to caravan to Lake Washington to spread Davis's ashes along the same shore where B.J.'s ashes were spread during her memorial.

The meeting place for the first part of the service on First Ave. is in a building at the corner of Spring and First Streets, across and just south of the Seattle Art Museum. Friends will gather on the sixth floor. Parking is at the rear of the building on Post Alley. Those who plan to attend are asked to RSVP to lisastorey@waldimports.com.
