His family said he was being kept on life-support for organ donation after being hospitalized on Monday in critical condition. He was 45-years-old.
In a statement released Wednesday, Mayor Winnecke said:
"I want to offer
my condolences to Rick's wife, family and friends. The sadness at his untimely
passing is shared with those who knew him well, by our city and all of
Vanderburgh County. Rick Davis will be remembered fondly and with gratitude for
his years of leadership. His caring and compassion extended beyond his
close-knit family to his wide circle of loyal friends and to his neighbors,
neighborhood and our community.
Rick had a true passion for public service. As a former newspaper journalist, he had a reputation for seeking the truth and endeavoring to help all of us gain a better understanding of the stories and issues that impacted our region. As an elected official, Rick was the consummate advocate, working tirelessly to provide the most effective and highest quality service to the citizens he served.
Our prayers are with his family and friends."
