The Davis Family Signs Out

Yesterday morning was the Davises’ last in Westport.

After 50 years in the same house, Bob (age 93) and his wife Agnes (87) headed south.

Nancy — one of their 5 born-and-raised-in-Westport kids — created a few dozen road signs. No, not the kind you grew so tired of during election season. These were much more personal.

They said things like:

Nancy placed them along Greens Farms Road, down South Compo to the beach, then back through Saugatuck. Mary Lou — another daughter — made sure her parents saw the signs as she drove them toward I-95, and on to their new life.

Bob and Agnes leave behind half a century of involvement here: Little League, Boy Scouts, PTAs, the Norwalk Hospital, mentoring, the Perkin-Elmer Retiree Club.

“I know I’ll miss my folks,” Rick — one of their sons — says.

“But I think they’ll miss Westport just as much.”
