By Jo DaviesA MEMORIAL service to celebrate the life of a Barrow man killed in a freak car accident in Hawaii will be held this month.
Michael Davison packed more into his 49 years than most, travelling the world as a PA to Hollywood stars Warren Beatty and Nicolas Cage.
He was enjoying a well-earned break after filming The Sorcerer’s Apprentice when the tragedy happened.
A runaway trailer carrying canoes struck his car in Kona, Hawaii, on September 6.
His family in Barrow have since received tributes from friends and associates from across the globe.
The Hollywood Reporter described Mr Davison as “one of the most experienced and respected personal assistants in the entertainment industry”.
The memorial service will be held at the Chetwynde Hotel, in Abbey Road, Barrow, from midday on October 17.
It will be an informal gathering of friends and family, offering their memories and stories of Mr Davison. There will also be food and refreshments.
Mr Davison is survived by his parents Kath and Terry Davison, his brother and sister-in-law Steve and Lynne Davison and sister Heather.
