BURIAL LOCATION

MUNICIPAL CEMETERY, DE VEGA BAJA, PR

I was born less than a couple of months before his tragic death. My family, the Davila, has always lovely and warmly remembered him. His father, Rufo, was my barber when I was a kid in Toa Alta. Miguel Angel was Assistant Electrician and worked with my father, Ovidio Davila Sr., who was at the time Electrician in Charge of the Puerto Rico Electric Energy Authority in the town of Toa Alta. I knew about him through all the good memories and heartily felt sorrows about him expressed over the years by my relatives. He was called "Uncle Miguel" by my elder cousins. I will never forget the good remembrances about him.
