LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Former La Follette Police Officer Judge Davis was laid to rest this morning. The US Army Vietnam Veteran and nearly 30-year law enforcement veteran passed away on Saturday.
LPD Lt. James Lynch, the lone remaining officer on the LPD force to have worked with Davis, recalled how he would always greet you with “how you doin’, buddy?” The two worked together after Lynch joined the La Follette Police Force in 1987 until Davis’ retirement. “I hated to see him retire,” added Lynch.
After retiring, Davis would stop and visit some here at the office according to the Lieutenant. “When he didn’t stop, he’d honk and wave as he drove by,” said Lynch. Lynch’s last memory of Davis was him driving by the department and waving back in the fall.
Lynch reflected on Lynch as an officer and as a co-worker saying the two worked well together and got along. “He was a good policeman and a good fella,” Lynch noted.
Judge Warren Davis was 74-years old.
