Skip Davis grew up in Philadelphia. He says it almost killed him.
“People getting killed every day. That never changed. It is a blessing that I am just alive, period.”
He lived there almost 50 years. His family was there for a few generations.
“I guess everybody came from down South somewhere.”
Skip’s father was a construction worker. His mother worked in an office. Both of them died young, his mother from cancer and his father from a heart attack. After they passed, it was just him.
