Port Angeles: Slain deputy to be recalled on anniversary of shooting death

PORT ANGELES — Slain Clallam County Sheriff's Deputy Wally Davis will be remembered Sunday, the first anniversary of his fatal shooting.

A public ceremony is planned for 1 p.m. in Veterans Park, behind the Clallam County Courthouse.

The ceremony will include the posting of colors and raising of the flag by the Sheriff's Honor Guard, and a brief speech by Sheriff Joe Hawe.

It will conclude with the ringing of the park's Liberty Bell. The bell will ring 21 times in tribute, beginning at 1:39 p.m. — the time Davis died in the Olympic Memorial Hospital emergency room.

Davis, 48, was shot at close range with a shotgun, allegedly by Thomas Martin Roberts, shortly after 12:35 p.m. last Aug. 5.

Three-year-old Archie Hanson takes a spin on a merry-go-round pushed by his mother, Justine Hanson of Port Angeles, with sister Arlene Hanson 7 months, during Sunday's grand reopening of the Dream Playground at Erickson Playfield in Port Angeles. The playground was rebuilt earlier this month by volunteers after an arson fire destroyed much of the playground equipment in December. Although there are still details to attend to and minor adjustments to be made, the facility will be open daily from dawn until dusk.
