Remembering Constable Ruben Davis


Dear Family and Friends,

It was a great shock to hear about the loss of Constable Ruben Davis, as he was one of our most loved, admired and respected law enforcement heroes who proudly served and protected Fort Bend County.  He was not only dedicated to serving Fort Bend County, Precinct Two, but he was also dedicated to his family, friends and those in the surrounding communities.

He was a member of the family, not only supporting the publication, but a recipient of the 2013 Law Enforcement Hero Award at our Top 50 Black Attorneys Award event for his service.  Constable Davis was always in attendance at events, and he had a smile and spirit that would light up the room when he entered.

He used his position as Constable to truly make a difference.  It was not just a title for him, but a calling to serve others, and he did it with the highest integrity.  His long career in law enforcement empowered many people and many communities, not only improving security and safety, but quality of life.  He was proactive, not reactive when it came to serving our seniors and young people.  Under his leadership, youth were provided with opportunities to help them succeed.

Constable Davis was definitely one of a kind, and a confidant who I would gain great wisdom from.  Though he was a man who had great responsibility as a Constable, he never turned away when I needed that listening ear.  He was truly a man of God.

The family extend our thoughts and prayers to his wife Sharon, his daughter Robin Davis, other family, friends, law enforcement he served with and all whose lives he touched.

Like many of you, I can say that Constable Davis was a true friend.  He has left a great legacy and he will truly be missed.  I was proud to know a man such as him.  I consider myself better for knowing him.

With Love,
Publisher and CEO
