Loved ones mourn 21-year-old crash victim

Guam - Family and friends are mourning the loss of a man that has now become the island tenth traffic-related fatality this year. 21-year-old Lance Anthony Davis was more than just a grandson, a son, and a brother to his family.

"My son's a very good son, he took great care of us," noted Nancy Alberto. "He's standing as the father of my son because their father's in the Philippines and he got two jobs."  She added, "He always ask me, 'Mom, you have problem?' And I say, 'It's nothing, son.'"

Lance worked at the Micronesia Mall Stadium Theatres as well as the Pacific Islands Club. He was what his family would call "the backbone of the family". Lance's sister, Princess Davis, says he would always make time for his family when he had time off, telling KUAM News, "If he has a problem, he text me, 'Go home, I need to talk to you.' We're like best friends and everything, he's the best, he's really the best."  

It was on Saturday that emergency units responded to the accident along Route 3 where Lance lost control of his black Scion TC before he collided with a concrete power pole. An autopsy conducted today showed that he died from a skull fracture and a broken neck. The Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division is still investigating whether speed and/or alcohol are factors in the crash.

Family members say they were expecting Lance home that afternoon.  Asked what she'll miss most about her brother, Princess responded by saying, "When he's cooking; he loves to cook, like when he's off he's going to cook for us, he has the main course he has the salad, he buys everything, he's complete, he's organized."

Alberto says Lance planned to join the U.S. Air Force when he turned 24. Aside from being a big help to the family, they say they will miss his smile. "If you hear me, I miss you son, I want to hug you son, I miss you very much, I ask the Lord to see you one more time my son, I want to hug him," she said emotionally, with Princess adding, "I just want to hug him, I just want to touch his face and body, now I don't know...I cannot see him anymore."

Lance would have turned 22 on August 8.

Services for Lance Davis are being held nightly at the Santa Barbara Church in Dededo at 6pm. Rosaries will be held at 7pm, and arraignments are still being made to send his body to the Philippines, where he will be buried.
