Popular DJ dies days after falling off Christmas float
GONZALES - A River Parishes area DJ died days after falling from a float during a Christmas parade earlier this month.
Family members identified the man as Quincy "D.J. Thriller" Davis. A growing memorial Facebook page shared memories of his life and his performances.
Davis was on a float in the Gonzales Christmas Parade on December 12 when he fell off and hit his head.
Davis had been hospitalized since the incident almost two weeks ago.
The Christmas parade is organized by the Jambalaya Festival Association.
Davis was riding in a float with more than one level.
"Some may not realize it yet, but Quincy "D.J. Thriller" Davis is on assignment. He is bridging the gap between people from all walks of life," a family member posted on the Facebook page.
