KEYSER, W.Va. — Richard Allen Davis, 73, of “C” Street, Keyser, died Saturday, June 29, 2013 at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, Cumberland.

Born on May 25, 1940 at Fairmont, W.Va., he was a son of the late Robert Gross Davis and Mary Elizabeth (Mittendorf) Davis.

Mr. Davis was a 1958 graduate of East Fairmont High School and received his Bachelor's Degree in Music Education in 1962 and his Master's Degree in Music Theory and Composition from West Virginia University.

Davis and wife Carolyn of Philippi, W.Va.; and a sister, Sarah E. "Sally" Davis of Fairmont. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews and cousins.
