Frank E. Davis, 69, of Newtown, died unexpectedly October 27 at Danbury Hospital. He was born in Danbury, April 29, 1944, to Gladys (Morgan) and Lorin Davis.
Mr Davis attended Bethel schools and graduated from Bethel High School in the Class of 1962. He worked for the Bard Parker Company and was employed by Perkin-Elmer for more than 20 years, where he worked on the Hexagon Satellite and the Hubbell Telescope.
