Bill was an extraordinary person by every definition of the word. His enthusiasm, generosity, and insistence on putting others first will never be forgotten. He was tragically taken from us while returning from a bike ride with friends in North Boulder on June 25, 2016. He leaves behind his wife of 12 years, Brianne, and his three children Blake, age 9, Landon, 6, and Owen, 3. He will also be missed by his parents Joe and Brenda, sister Kelly, and brother Todd.

Cyclist killed in hit and run crash at 30th and Jay Road in Boulder County
By John Bear, Boulder Daily Camera
A Boulder man was hit and killed on Saturday afternoon as he rode his bicycle westbound on Jay Road near 30th Street in a possibly alcohol-related hit and run crash.
Colorado State Trooper Alisha Danko said that 35-year-old William B. Davis was fatally injured when a 2015 Dodge Durango entered the bicycle lane he was riding in at about 5:15 p.m. His crumpled bicycle remained in the bicycle lane as police investigated on Saturday evening.
Danko said the driver of the Durango, who has been identified as 24-year-old Callie Kuhasz, of Boulder, left the scene but was located near 11th and Spruce in Boulder and taken into custody.
She said Kuhasz was being held at Boulder County Jail, but she did not have any information on what charges Kuhasz faces, but added that alcohol and speed are being considered as factors.
Police shut down Jay Road in between 28th street and 30th Street for several hours as they investigated.
Danko said that Davis was riding with another person at the time of the crash. Shortly after the crash, a man wearing cycling clothes could be seen sitting down at the scene, but it was not known if he was the second cyclist.
Saturday's crash marks the third cyclist fatality in Boulder County since May. On May 20, 8-year-old Peyton Knowlton died after being struck at the intersection of 17th Avenue and Alpine Street in Longmont. On Tuesday, 46-year-old Shane Swope was struck near 17th Avenue and Gay Street, also in Longmont, and died the next day.
The drivers in both cases remained on scene, and Longmont police continue to investigate both cases.
