  • Hi Marcus,
    I have only now found your name after having read the obituary to Brian Davis. I admire your work now that I am aware of what you do. I was shocked to read that Brian had passed in Feb. of this year. I met Brian almost monthly while working for Parbury Henty & Co in their wholesale showroom for many years. We were one of Brian’s distributors & I would look forward to seeing him when he called to prepare our order & to introduce new items. I am saddened that after leaving Parbury’s I no longer kept in touch. Brian was an exceptional man & of wonderful character. Ironically when I am doing some baking I refer to a cookbook Popular Home Tested Recipes by the Highest Community Youth Club. Inside the front cover is a half page advert by Brian Davis & Co which reminds me of time spent with Brian. My wife & I moved to Perth 33 years ago from Melbourne. If you are in tough with Brian’s brother please pass on my sincere condolences.
