Nelson Leon Davis

December 15, 1933 — January 4, 2024

Nelson Leon Davis was born December 15, 1933, to Walter and Addie Davis. He was the 6th of 8 children that lived and worked on the family farm south of Roosevelt. He attended and graduated from Roosevelt High School where he met the love of his life, Olene Reid. They both attended Oklahoma State University for one year before they married on June 25, 1953. To this union were born 3 children: Suzanne, Reid and Brad. Nelson could do anything he set his mind to. He raised sheep and dairy cows, he farmed, ran a gravel pit. He was a mechanic, and a master carpenter turning mesquite wood into beautiful works of art. He loved his children, grand children, and great grand children beyond measure and was so proud of each of them.
