November 17, 1994 ~ March 7, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Davis Escola announces his passing, on March 7, 2018, at the age of 23.
Davis was born on November 17, 1994 in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of Chris and Maria Escola. He attended Crossroads Elementary School and spent an adventurous childhood scaling trees and wading through Midwest creeks with his sisters Hallie and Casey. After moving to Washington in the 5th grade, Davis was a student at Hockinson Elementary, Middle, and High School. There he excelled as an athlete, both in baseball and soccer. Davis taught himself to play the guitar at 13 and pursued music as his great passion. He had a remarkable intuitive talent and learned to play multiple instruments, often mastering a song within minutes of hearing it. He performed at many events and locations, usually with his band of best friends. Davis was an avid fly fisherman and outdoorsman. He and his parents spent many hours on rivers and lakes across the country, and Davis was always seeking that next great adventure.
Davis graduated from high school in 2012 and began classes at Clark Community College. He was currently living in Sacramento, California near family.
Davis will be forever remembered by his family: his parents Chris and Maria, his sisters Casey and Hallie, his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a community of loving friends. Davis made an impression on everyone he met, with his easy smile, generosity of spirit, and genuine love of the people around him. He was truly one of the best of us.
A celebration of Davis's life will be held at his family's home on Tuesday, March 27 from 5-8p.m.
Those who wish to do so may make donations in Davis's memory to Trout Unlimited, to help preserve the vast wide wilderness which Davis loved so well.
