About Mary & Larry Davis

Larry and Mary Davis personified the heart and spirit of the roofing industry community. Committed to supporting the professional standing of roofing contractors, Larry promoted high standards and believed that a well-educated membership was key to the industry's future success.

Founder of State Roofing Company in Modesto, California, Larry served as a director on the Western States RCA Board of Directors and was active on several committees, often flying to meetings with his wife Mary in their private airplane. They perished in a plane crash in 1995 when they were returning from a committee meeting.

Their deaths deeply touched the roofing community. To honor their memory, and acknowledge Larry's invaluable contribution to our industry, the Western States Roofing Contractors Association formalized their charitable endeavors and created the Davis Memorial Foundation. Dedicated to promoting education, the Foundation is a tribute to them.

The Davis children preserve their parents' legacy by continuing to operate State Roofing Company in Modesto, California.
