Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Neville Edward (Ted) Davis
November 21, 1938 - August 1, 2018
It is with great sorrow that the family of Ted Davis announces his passing on August 1, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta at the age of 79 years.
Ted will be lovingly remembered by his spouse Virginia Janes; his children Charene Davis (Allen Ainscough), Regan Davis (Kristine Morrow), Lana Robinson (Bill); and eight grandchildren. He will also be sadly missed by his brother Robert Davis (Anne) and his nieces. Ted is predeceased by his father Douglas Davis, his brother Michael Davis, and his mother Ethel Davis.
Born November 21, 1938 at Bishopdown Farm near Salisbury, England, Ted was the second youngest of two brothers, Robert (Bob) and Michael (Mike), and one sister Rosemary. Ted grew up on the family farm and attended the Young Farmers Society where he had the honor of delivering a speech at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Ted immigrated to Canada in 1957 arriving in Saint John, New Brunswick via the SS Empress of Britain. He worked on various ranches and in the oil industry before making Calgary, Alberta his home. He spent the majority of his career in the veterinary medicine business which ultimately lead to his own business, Anshire.
Ted’s life was enriched by his family and grandchildren. His life-long passion was his love for breeding and racing thoroughbred horses celebrating many successes in this pursuit. Ted had a captivating zest for life. He brought energy into a room and a gathering was always more entertaining when he was present. His vitality was an inspiration.
Ted’s family would like to express sincere gratitude to staff at the Chinook Hospice, Dr. Michael Forseth, and Palliative Homecare Team.
Ted’s Celebration of Life will be held on August 13, 2018 at 2:00 pm in the Gasoline Alley Mezzanine Room (Heritage Park – 1900 Heritage Drive S.W., Calgary, AB). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ted’s honor to New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society
