Sterling P. “Peter” Davis, 81, passed away in his home on Friday morning November 23, 2018.
Born in Binghamton, New York on February 1, 1937, Peter was the only child born to Sterling and Helen A. (Powers) Davis. He graduated from Binghamton High School. Peter went on to graduate with his Bachelors Degree in Philosophy from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York, on a full-ride academic scholarship.
Peter served our country in the U.S. Marines as a Reserve until his Honorable Discharge.
Before technology was what it is today, Peter was an educational textbook salesman. He then later became a soft-ware developer of educational school software until his retirement in 2008. Peter was proud to be the youngest member of the Million Dollar Club for Harcourd Brace Inc.

Peter is survived by his sons, Sterling Peter (Maureen) Davis III of Elkton, MD and Robert Guy (Jinnifer) Davis of Rockford, MI; three grandchildren Robert, Ana and Gabriela; and his son’s mother, Theresa Davis.
