Industry mourns passing of Ed Davis

CAMAS, Wash. – It is with great sadness that Furuno USA, Inc. announced the passing of industry veteran and longtime Furuno employee, Ed Davis, on April 30th.

Davis was Furuno USA’s mid-Atlantic regional manager since September 1992, working closely with dealers who he not only called customers, but his friends. Prior to working at Furuno, Davis had his own marine manufacturer’s rep company, where he represented Datamarine International, Audiovox and Shakespeare Electronics. He first entered into the maritime industry in 1987 when he was hired as the senior product planner/buyer for Boat America Corp. From there he was hired as a sales engineer for Datamarine International and later an associate representative for Bruce Hackett Company.

In addition to Davis’s passion for boating, he was also very active in hunting, fishing, trapping, racing and aviation.

Everyone at Furuno has wonderful memories of Davis and they will all greatly miss his friendship, professionalism and his sense of humor.

He is survived by his wife Jackie and their two daughters, Kelly and Samantha. He also leaves behind his beloved faithful dog, Radar, who will miss the all day belly rubs when Davis worked in his office.
