Furuno mourns death of industry veteran Ed Davis


(CAMAS, Wash.) — It is with great sadness that Furuno USA Inc. announces the passing of industry veteran and longtime Furuno employee Ed Davis on April 30.

Davis was Furuno USA’s Mid-Atlantic regional manager since September 1992, working closely with dealers who he not only called customers, but his friends. Prior to working at Furuno, he had his own marine manufacturer’s rep company, where he represented Datamarine International, Audiovox and Shakespeare Electronics. He first entered into the maritime industry in 1987 when he was hired as the senior product planner/buyer for Boat America Corp. From there he was hired as a sales engineer for Datamarine International and later an associate representative for Bruce Hackett Co.

In addition to his passion for boating, he was also very active in hunting, fishing, trapping, racing and aviation.

Davis is survived by his wife Jackie and their two daughters, Kelly and Samantha.
