Joel was born on 8/08/80 in Philadelphia, NY. He began serving his community at the young age of 23. He was known as an honorable man who treated anyone and everyone as an equal, with respect and dignity.

On the fateful night of July 29,2017 Trooper Joel Davis made the ultimate sacrifice responding to an active shooter, saving the lives of three innocent people. Our community recognizes Joel's actions as selfless, brave and heroic. Joel will always be remembered as a loving father, son, brother, husband, coach and friend.
