This is George Davis. He’s famous — but only at the Glenridge on Palmer Ranch, where he presides as president of the Glenridge Advisory Council while wearing lavender socks, purple handkerchiefs and colorful slippers embroidered with a “D” and “G.”

“I keep him awake with tap dancing, and he bangs on the ceiling with a broomstick,” said Jane Goehrig, his upstairs neighbor and one of six roasters.
