Roy Davis Memorial
Port of Brookings Harbor had the honor of having Roy Davis as a Commissioner since 2007. Not only did he serve the Port, but he was a shipwright and a marine surveyor for 24 years helping our commercial fleet and recreational boats. Roy was also an active member in the community. He supported B.A.C.A, and always supported Port events. He made a huge impact to the Port of Brookings Harbor, the fishing community, and the Southern Oregon Coast Region.
To honor Roy's contribution, the Port commission has approved a memorial to be placed on Port grounds. This GoFundMe account has been created for donations to this memorial. We welcome any suggestions or ideas on the type & location of this memorial to honor Roy. Please visit the GoFundMe account or stop by the Port Office to make a donation or share your thoughts.
