Veteran Street Sign Program celebrates 100th ceremony

April 30, 2024

The North Brunswick Veteran Street Sign Program hit a milestone on Monday, April 29 as its 100th ceremony was celebrated at the intersection of Cozzens Lane, Hartland Commons and Sabella Park Drive.

Family and friends gathered as North Brunswick honored U.S. Army veteran Bob Davis with the dedication of Davis Way.

Bob grew up in Flatbush Brooklyn and graduated high school from Erasmus Hall. He attended the University of Miami, Florida followed by a life-long fandom of that university’s sports teams and a successful career in business.

Bob served in the 11th Army Airborne Division.

Bob has served as a North Brunswick Township Councilman for twenty–one years, as well as Council President and a member of the Planning Board. Bob joined the Adams Athletic Club in 1988 and has been the chaplain for that organization for ten years and a Trustee for six years. Bob’s volunteer spirit was displayed when he coached Pop Warner football for five years. Bob found great enjoyment in leisure recreation, playing really bad golf with his friend Tom Kole which always brought smiles to his face.

Out of compassion for those who have served our country, and with an understanding of the magnitude of their sacrifices, Councilman Davis began North Brunswick’s Veteran’s Street Dedication Program in June of 2014.

Today, as we celebrate our Township’s One Hundredth Veterans’ Street Naming dedication, we honor Bob for his service to our country and to our Township. One of Councilman Davis’ greatest accomplishments has been tirelessly working to support all Veterans and the Veteran Street Dedication Program has been dear to his heart, along with the Paver Brick Project at Veteran’s Park, which also honors those who have served and sacrificed for our nation through their military service.

Bob is a loving man, dearly loved in return for many years by his late wife Linda, and now by his son Brett Davis and his wife Amy and their children, Tovah and Louis; by his son Adam and his wife Carly and their children, Dylan and Parker; by his loving companion Nan Kopel; by those who have the privilege of serving with Bob in the North Brunswick municipal government; by his friends in sports and civic organizations; and by all the people of North Brunswick.

We thank Councilman Davis for his service to our country and North Brunswick community!
