The saying "it takes a village to raise a child" inspires me to say " it takes a Family to build a Family business". I am most proud of the Davis Family and the entire team.
Conrad started the company after graduating from the University of Maine in 1976. He has maintained his position throughout the years, expanding the company as well as its services. While growing the company, he raised his three children, Nicole, Lyndsey, and Christopher. They have all established themselves within the Company, with Nicole becoming VP of Finance and Chris becoming VP of Operations. They, along with Lyndsey and his grandson Bentley, prove to be his pride and joy. Conrad says, "To see the Company move into a second generation of operation is one of my life's greatest accomplishments. I am a very blessed man."
IN LOVING MEMORY
NICOLE M. DAVIS-MARQUIS
VP of Finance
REST IN PEACE AS YOU SOAR WITH THE ANGELS ABOVE.
Nicole began her work at Davis as an assistant to the receptionist when she was 14 years old and held the position of VP of Finance. She was responsible for all functions of the accounting office including all bookkeeping, payroll, human resource functions, as well as all contract functions and front end duties. Nicole was an integral part of the Davis Team and her dedication was unsurpassed.
She graduated from St. Dominic Regional High School and Central Maine Community College, where she obtained her AAS from the Business Management and Administration program. While at CMCC, Nicole was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and graduated with Double Honors. She resided in Lewiston with the love of her life, Jeff, and their fur baby Weezy (who doubled as an Office Mascot).
She valiantly battled Breast Cancer for three years and passed away on May 23, 2016, at the age of 32. REST IN PEACE, DEAR ONE. YOU HAVE EARNED YOUR ANGEL WINGS.
The landscape should not be imposed upon its surroundings, but rather supported by them.
