Thanks Patrick for this news and all included below. Sad he's gone and 
he'll be widely mourned but having read that uplifting Sam Deane 
interview am not going to say it's a tragic loss. If you come across 
those poems, please post!

> EARLY LIFE AND EDUCATION
> 
> Davis was born in Fontana, California [65], on March 10, 1946.[1] [98]
> He was raised in the Bostonia [99] neighborhood of El Cajon [100] in
> San Diego County [101]. His education was punctuated by stints as a
> meat cutter, truck driver, and a Congress of Racial Equality [102] and
> Students for a Democratic Society [103] (SDS) activist. He briefly
> studied at Reed College [104] in the mid-1960s but did not begin his
> academic career in earnest until the early 1970s, when he earned BA
> and MA degrees but did not complete the PhD program in history from
> the University of California, Los Angeles [67].[2] [105]
> 
> Davis stated that one of the moments prompting him to return to study
> after working was a violent strike, “I had this job with a bus-tour
> company when suddenly this insanely violent strike broke out. A
> strikebreaker ran a bus over one of our guys, and next thing I knew I
> was in a room with forty guys voting on whether each of us is gonna
> put up $400 to hire a hit man to kill the head of the strikebreakers.
> I said, ‘Hey, guys, this is just crazy,’ and made the best speech
> of my life. I was outvoted thirty-nine to one. I thought to myself,
> ‘Typical American workers’; I think I said ‘pussies.’ Instead
> of coming up with a political strategy, they reach for their guns as
> soon as they see a scab driving their bus. And here I am about to
> become a freshman at UCLA, and I’m going to get arrested for
> criminal conspiracy.” [3] [106]
> 
> CAREER
> 
> Davis was a 1996–1997 Getty Scholar at the Getty Research Institute
> [107][4] [108] and received a MacArthur Fellowship Award [109] in
> 1998.[5] [110] He won the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction [111]
> in 2007.
> 
> Davis was Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of
> Creative Writing at the University of California, Riverside [112], and
> an editor of the _New Left Review [113]_. Davis taught urban theory
> [114] at the Southern California Institute of Architecture [115] and
> at Stony Brook University [116] before he secured a position at
> University of California, Irvine [117]‘s history department. He also
> contributed to the British monthly _Socialist Review [118]_, the organ
> of the British Socialist Workers Party [119].[6] [120] As a journalist
> and essayist, Davis has written for, among others, _The Nation [121]_,
> _The New Left Review [122]_, _Jacobin [123]_, and the UK’s _New
> Statesman [124]_.[7] [125][8] [126][9] [127][10] [128]
> 
> He was a self-defined international socialist and
> “Marxist-Environmentalist”.[11] [129] He wrote in the tradition of
> socialists/architects/regionalism advocates such as Lewis Mumford
> [130] and Garrett Eckbo [131], whom he cited in _Ecology of Fear_. His
> early book, _Prisoners of the American Dream_, was an important
> contribution to the Marxist study of U.S. history, political economy,
> and the state, as well as to the doctrine of revolutionary
> integrationism [132], as Davis, like Trotskyists such as Max Shachtman
> [133], Richard S. Fraser [134], James Robertson [135], as well as
> French anarchist Daniel Guérin [136], argued that the struggle of
> Black people in the U.S. was for equality, that this struggle was an
> explosive contradiction fundamental to the U.S. bourgeois republic,
> that only socialism could bring it about, and that its momentum would
> someday be a powerful contribution to a socialist revolution in the
> U.S.[12] [137]
> 
> Davis was also the author of two fiction books for young adults: _Land
> of The Lost Mammoths_ and _Pirates, Bats and Dragons_.
> 
> CRITICISM AND ACADEMIC RECEPTION
> 
> Reviewers have praised Davis’ prose style and his exposés of
> economic, social, environmental and political injustice. His book
> _Planet of Slums_ inspired a special issue of _Mute [138]_ magazine on
> global slums.[13] [139]
> 
> According to Todd Purdum’s sharply critical 1999 piece, Davis
> “acknowledged fabricating an entire conversation with a local
> environmentalist, Lewis McAdams, for a cover story he wrote for _L.A.
> Weekly_ a decade ago (in the late 1980s); he defends it as an early
> attempt at journalistic scene-setting.”[14] [140] However, in his
> October 2004 _Geography_ article, “That Certain Feeling: Mike Davis,
> Truth and the City,” Kevin Stannard held that this “controversy is
> explained by Davis’s ambiguous balancing of academic research and
> reportage”.[15] [141]
> 
> Jon Wiener [80] has defended Davis in _The Nation_, maintaining that
> his critics are political opponents exaggerating the significance of
> small errors.[16] [142]
> 
> Some academic leftists have also criticized Davis’s focus on modern
> urban structures. In a review essay on _City of Quartz_, geographer
> Cindi Katz [143] criticized its apocalypticism as masculinist and tied
> it to the flattening of people’s subjectivity as they are made into
> “characters” more than social actors.[17] [144] Citing Jane Jacobs
> [145]‘ attacks upon Lewis Mumford in her _Death and Life of Great
> American Cities,_ Andy Merrifield [146] (_MetroMarxism_, Routledge
> 2002) wrote that Davis’ analysis was “harsh” (p. 170). Davis’
> work, particularly _Planet of Slums_, has been criticized by
> Merrifield and urban studies professor Tom Angotti as “anti-urban”
> and “overly apocalyptic”.[18] [147]
> 
> These critics charge that Davis failed to focus on activist groups
> among the poor and working class in solving problems—as advocated by
> Manuel Castells [148] and Marshall Berman [149].[19] [150]
> 
> As he stated in _Planet of Slums,_ however, Davis was not interested
> in such a “reformist” approach. He argued that most reforms have
> failed because they treat the symptoms rather than the cause: economic
> and political inequality. He argued in _Ecology of Fear_[20] [151]
> that realistic solutions lie in a radical transformation of the city
> and of capitalism by the global working-class, as Lewis Mumford and
> Garrett Eckbo advocated.
> 
> PERSONAL LIFE AND DEATH
> 
> Davis was married to Mexican American artist and professor Alessandra
> Moctezuma (born 1968) and lived in San Diego, California [66].[21]
> [152]
> 
> He was diagnosed with cancer.[22] [153] In a July 25, 2022, story in
> _The Los Angeles Times,_ Davis said, “I’m in the terminal stage of
> metastatic esophageal cancer but still up and around the house...But I
> guess what I think about the most is that I’m just extraordinarily
> furious and angry. If I have a regret, it’s not dying in battle or
> at a barricade as I’ve always romantically imagined — you know,
> fighting.”[23] [154][24] [155] He died from esophageal cancer [156]
> on October 25, 2022, at the age of 76.[25] [157][1] [98]
