Memorial service set for Ed Davis

A memorial service for Ed Davis, a former mayor of Portola Valley and longtime community volunteer, is set for 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, in the Community Hall at Town Center at 765 Portola Road. Mr. Davis died Jan 25 of lymphoma. He was 79.

Mr. Davis did some heavy lifting as a volunteer in serving on panels that can make great demands on one's personal time, including six years on the Planning Commission and eight on Town Council. After retiring from the council in 2007, Mr. Davis volunteered to be the town's liaison with the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The family prefers memorial donations to the Open Space Fund, Portola Valley, 765 Portola Rd., Portola Valley, CA 94028.
