Most Important Man in Jamesport

Davey Davis and Roy Bontrager
One thing evident in this small town is that there is a strong work ethic among the local tradesmen, and foremost among our local tradesmen is Davey Davis. I don't think you could find a single long term resident who has not dealt with Davey at one time or another. Davey is the man behind Davis Plumbing and Heating.
Taking a Smoke Break
Most Important Man in Town
It isn't everyday that you get excited over a plumber, but Davey is the exception. His brand of service is part Will Rodgers and part magician. He appears as if by magic when he is needed and makes you smile with his wit and good natured ribbing, while at the same time making your plumbing nightmares disappear. As if that wasn't enough, he and his crew are the backbone of our First Responders and Volunteer Fire Department.
Davey obviously loves his work and does it in a way that reminds you of how great everyday life can be, even when all you are doing is working on your plumbing.
I am currently working on adding rooms to the Inn and during the process we needed to reroute the water mains under the building. The day these photos were taken, Davey and his wizard's apprentice Roy Bontrager were tunneling under the building and encouraging me to grad a shovel and join in the fun. Davey is a modern day Tom Sawyer. He made the job seem like a great opportunity to have a good time. It made my day!
If you ask me who is the most important man in town, I would have to say, without a doubt, Davey Davis.
