Gilbert K. Davis, 1942–2022

Gilbert K. Davis, a longtime resident of Northern Virginia and distinguished lawyer, died last month, following a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. He was 79.

In his role as Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Mr. Davis’s cases included numerous “firsts,” including the first aircraft hijacking in America; the first case under the Clean Air Act; and the first case under the 1968 Gun Control Act. Decades later, he was involved in yet another “first,” when his client, Paula Corbin Jones, sued a sitting U.S. president over unwanted sexual conduct.

A loyal Republican, Mr. Davis was a valued member of the Fairfax County Republican Committee. In addition, he served as parliamentarian for the 11th Congressional District Republican Committee. Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts hailed Mr. Davis’s legacy, in a statement issued today. “Gilbert was known as both a good Republican and a great man,” Chairman Knotts said. “We are grateful for his generosity and his friendship over the years. Our thoughts and heartfelt prayers today are with Gilbert’s family.”

On Sunday, April 3, 2022, a celebration of life will be held in Falls Church (State Theatre, 220 North Washington Street, Falls Church, VA 22046). Doors will open at 3:00 PM; the memorial service will start at 3:30 PM. A reception will follow. For more details, click here.
