Rick Davis, Veteran Volunteer

Rick Davis is a graduate of Purdue University who has lived in Evanston for 40 years. He is a retired Registered Representative who worked in financial services. Davis served four years in the Marine Corps, including two tours in the Vietnam War. He is married to his high school sweetheart and they have been together more than 50 years. Some of his past volunteer work includes participation in the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum's educational outreach program. Here he shared with high school and college students of American history what it was like to be in a combat zone in Vietnam as a 20-year-old – a talk he has given to more than 25,000 people. He is a contributor to the book “Once a Marine” by Claude DeShazo, a collection of stories by veterans about how their Marine Corps experience impacted their lives.

In addition to his volunteer work at the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum, Davis has been a civic volunteer for Heifer International, promoting the humanitarian work of this nonprofit organization. He led discussion groups for the Northwest Earth Institute, educating others on issues surrounding the environment. He has also been a  supporter of America Saves, a campaign to encourage people to return to those long forgotten habits of frugality, thrift, moderation, self-discipline, delayed gratification and patience. He has also volunteered at the Presbyterian Retirement Home in Evanston, as well as Hillside Food Pantry.

Rick and his wife, Sheila, have traveled to more than 20 countries. They have hiked the Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountains, Pyrenees, Andes and Himalayas. They have seen the King of Bhutan and King of Cambodia. The duo has traveled up the Mekong Delta to Angkor Wat, sailed up the Nile in Egypt, hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and hiked through Tuscany, and explored Patagonia. A  highlight of their travels was climbing Mt. Killimanjaro and then experiencing an African safari on the Serengeti.

Dana Human, Admissions Nurse

I have been a hospice nurse in various positions for almost 22 years. I found my passion when my own mother passed away when I was in my 20s. Hospice was still more of a “grass roots” service.

Even though I was in nursing school at the time, I had never even heard of hospice. Neither the hospital, or doctors ever mentioned this as an option. The painful, and very overwhelming care required of a dying loved one without assistance from professionals was indescribable. I vowed that if I found a better way I would be part of the solution for terminally ill people. I found my calling in 1995 and have not looked back since.

I love to read, listen to classical music and enjoy time with my nieces and nephew.
