Chuck Davis passed away today and Vancouver has lost it’s biggest fan. Chuck always found delight in uncovering the obscure fact that helped bring that little extra to the story of the city. I’ll miss his emails filled with interesting photos, facts and trivia sent at all times of the day and night. And I’ll miss the sharing of those odd bits of history we’d both uncovered in our research.
Born in Winnipeg in 1935, Davis worked as an author, newspaper columnist, radio announcer and TV producer after getting his start in broadcasting at the Canadian Army radio station in West Germany after joining the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry in 1953.
