John Frazee Davis Memorial  

Celebrating the life of John Frazee Davis • September 18, 1950 to March 18, 2019

John Frazee Davis lived a life full of love and kindness. The people who knew him would often describe him as a good person with a wonderful heart. Although his life was tragically cut short, he accomplished a great deal during his time with us. Born a true Colorado native, he grew up in Aurora and attended Metropolitan State University of Denver where he earned a degree in Psychology. While there, he met and fell in love with Jane Wessler, whom he married in 1973. After spending a few years in Chicago John returned to Denver and to MSU Denver, this time earning a degree in Civil Engineering. Shortly thereafter he began working at Richard Weingardt Consultants (RWC) and went on to become a structural engineer. John was named a Partner at RWC in 1987 and President in 1995.

John amassed numerous awards throughout his engineering career, including the Arc Welding Award for Design and Construction, and was responsible for many notable projects throughout the country including the Jefferson County Government Center, Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans, Coors Field Review, Denver International Airport Airside Concourses, as well as several other DIA projects that are still ongoing. He enjoyed working on projects of all shapes and sizes but one of his favorite projects was the old airplanes hanging in Concourse B at DIA. John gave back to his profession in many ways, including holding a leadership position on the Industrial Advisory Board of the CET Program at Metropolitan State University of Denver.

In his spare time, John was always finding ways to stay active and healthy.  He could be found traveling the world and exploring the hiking trails of Colorado with Jane and his son Kyle. His interests included playing the guitar, reading sci-fi novels and he was always keen on mechanical wonders such as railroads, cars, and motorcycles. 

John’s passing came too soon and will be deeply felt by those in his professional and personal life but his legacy will live on in the many lives he touched. Donations made in John’s name will allow his passion for and commitment to the engineering field to continue on into the future. Gifts made will directly support students in the Engineering program at MSU Denver.
