Olin B. Davis

Olin B. Davis, 58, born to Cecil and Jewel (Eaton) Davis on December 19, 1953, in New Harmony, Ind., died Friday, May 11, 2012, at his home in New Harmony, after losing his battle with cancer.
A graduate of New Harmony High School in 1971, he worked for the Town of New Harmony for over 21 years, and a member of the Town of New Harmony Parks and Recreation Tree Board for five years. He was also member of the Sons of the American Legion Post 370, for over 35 years and held the office of the adjutant.
Olin was a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Indiana Hoosiers. He loved to dance and he loved “his girls” Lady and Baby his dogs. You could always tell where Olin lived because he placed his concrete Dalmatian (which was recently trimmed in pink by his niece) in his front yard. He wanted to make sure to give a shout out to the “sock sucker” boys, and you know who you are!
Olin is survived by his wife: Angela (Happe) whom he married on November 8, 1997; three sons: Scott (Rebecca) Fischer of Carmi, Ill., and Bryan Happe and Zack Davis both of New Harmony, Ind. Also surviving are four grandchildren: Brody Fischer, Austin Fischer, Noah Fischer and Carter Happe; siblings: Kathy (David) Nickelson and Jenny Davis, both of Evansville, Ind., Robert (Nicole) Davis of New Harmony, Ind., Rocky (Judy) Davis of Evansville, Ind., and Debbie Drake of the St. Louis area, along with several foster siblings; nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws. Olin had more friends than can be listed, but a good start would be the entire town of New Harmony, and then some.
Olin was preceded in death by his parents; a sister: Jackie Davis and a grandson: Dimitri Fischer.
Funeral Services will be 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 15, 2012, at the Werry Funeral Home in New Harmony, Ind., with burial in Maple Hill Cemetery.
Friends called at the funeral home from 4 until 8 p.m. on Monday, May 14, 2012. There was a reception to follow at the American Legion Post.
Donations can be made to the Town of New Harmony, Parks and Recreation/Tree Board, 520 Church Street, PO Box 340, New Harmony, Indiana 47631.
Thanks to all the friends, family and Southern Care “hospice” for helping us through this rough time.
