Formerly homeless Daytona man overcoming odds, putting life back together | News-JournalOnline.com
He went to a community college in Ohio for two semesters, but he didnt have a focus and it didnt lead to a job.
In 1978, when he was 27, his mother moved to Orlando and he headed south with her. He was still restless and bounced from job to job, usually because he quit. He said it was mostly menial labor, and the best job was in a warehouse.
I had potential, but I was too busy goofing off, he said.
One of his Florida cousins was a preacher, and he said that relative convinced him to practice a type of Christianity that he now feels was cult-like and close-minded. The religion forbade alcohol, and he said mostly out of fear he quit drinking from 1985 to 2002.
I felt like an outsider all the time, Davis said. I was trying to please my cousin. I was a dry drunk. I never felt comfortable in my own skin. I wasnt drinking because I couldnt.
In 2002, he decided to come to Daytona Beach to work a temporary job at Daytona International Speedway over the July 4 weekend. He had always loved NASCAR, and thought hed be cleaning up in the garage and meeting drivers.
It turned out he cleaned up in the parking lot, and when the races ended and the drivers went home, he had no plan of what to do next. He didnt want to go back to Orlando, and he wound up living on the streets for the first time.
At first, I was scared to death, he said.
But then he befriended a few other homeless people and figured out how to survive.
Homelessness is a culture, and after you bore into it, it doesnt seem so bad, he said.
Soon, he was drinking again for the first time in nearly 20 years.
I drank because I felt like a failure, he said.
