A group of Downey's friends, some wearing sunglasses, others fighting back tears, spoke of their respect for him.
"Over the years, I got to know Davie and got to feel him out. You are a very good guy, like, I need you as my friend because you can't find too many friends like Davie," said a friend.
"God only takes the best," said another.
'This has to stop'
Neville Provo, who told the crowd he'd coached Downey in basketball since the age of five, had a message for the people in attendance.
"This has to stop," Provo said of recent violence. "He didn't want to hurt nobody."
In the month before Downey's death, there were three other fatal shootings.
Rev. Wayne Desmond from Cherry Brook United Baptist Church spoke of the violence as he gave the invocation prayer at Tuesday's service.
"We are at a loss for understanding the reasons for the sudden death of a friend and loved one," he said. "Father God, we are confused as to the shadow of death that has once again crossed our path."

Gloria Fisher, beloved Dartmouth entrepreneur, dead at 94 - CBC.caFriday, September 02, 2016
She remembered exactly what they bought. She could tell you whether that person bought wedding invitations from you in 1965. She was just that kind of person," said Dartmouth-Cole Harbour MP Darren Fisher, who is one of her grandchildren.
'That grandmotherly feel'
He says that most of her customers called her Mrs. Fisher, which was a sign of the respect they had for her.
Fisher took an interest in her customers lives and remembered even the most minute details. In later years, loyal customers helped out by cleaning the store and putting items on shelves.?
"She became a friend to all," said Darren Fisher.
Fisher's Stationery started in 1959 at the suggestion of Fisher's husband, Harold, who pre-deceased her.
The business lived through good and bad economic times in downtown Dartmouth and closed in 2013 when poor health forced Fisher to retire.
Fisher says his grandmother would have loved to see what's happening in downtown Dartmouth, which has become a trendy area to live and work.
'Something she always hoped for'
"I'm sure if she had a regret, it's that she wasn't able to hold on long enough to see the rebirth of the downtown area because downtown is becoming a booming area and it's something she always hoped for," he said.
Fisher was a comforting presence for the people who shopped there, such as customer Lorna Randall. She began shopping there in the 1960s and says that even when she was pressed for time, she would always stay a little...

No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton PostWednesday, March 27, 2019
SYDNEY, N.S. -
Anyone upset over what's happening in the funeral industry in Nova Scotia now has an opportunity to pull up a chair and do something about it.
For the first time, the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors is offering two board seats to public advocates not connected to the funeral industry, measures taken following a bizarre and emotional mix up at a Nova Scotia funeral home last year.
"That way the public can get involved in enforcement actions when they need to be taken by the board as we'd have the consumer advocate perspective as well," said Rodger Gregg, registrar of cemetery and funeral services in Nova Scotia.
However, Gregg said, his concern is that no one has applied for the positions and the positions start in June.
"Right now, we haven't received any applicants for these positions," he said.
"For us it's a great opportunity for there now to be consumer representation on the board to represent the consumer's interest."
The board previously consisted of just the registrar and five othe...
