I have known "Ricky" Davenport and his family since about 1956.  I remember his intelligence and the science museum he had in his bedroom.  An admission fee was one straight pin to get in.  His mother was also very creative with Halloween activities of roasting marshmellows in their fireplace. My parents, Shirley and Fran Hersey were very close friends with Ricky's parents. I was saddened to read of his passing.  Coral Hersey Horner
