Wally Davis remembered in ceremonies on both U.S. coasts


PORT ANGELES — Nine months ago, flags were lowered and the clock stopped at the Clallam County Courthouse.

On Tuesday, about 75 people gathered at the courthouse flagpoles to lower the flag again in memory of Wally Davis, the Clallam County sheriff’s deputy fatally shot during an Aug. 5 disturbance.

“It still hurts,” Port Angeles police Sgt. Eric Kovatch said. “Any time we can honor Wally, we should take that opportunity.”

In Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, Sheriff Joe Hawe escorted Davis’ widow, Lisa, to place a carnation on a memorial wreath on the western front of the U.S. Capitol. She also received a medallion in honor of her husband.
