December 29, 1926 - June 8, 2020
Olin Dewayne Laws, 93, of Bloomfield, Iowa passed away on June 8, 2020 at the Davis County Hospital. He was born December 29, 1926 in Missouri to Ova Olin and Edna Teresa (Coon) Laws. He was united in marriage to Hazel Irene Darrah on January 1, 1947 in Davenport, Iowa, and were the parents of five children; Nellie Irina, Carol Ann, Terri, Debra Marie and Leona Christine.

After the war, he was a progressive farmer in both Monroe and Davis County, but he enjoyed the many years he spent trucking most of all. He hauled livestock as-well-as freight. Irene trucked with him for many years and together they traveled to 47 of the 48 contiguous states. In the winter, they became “Winter Texans,” spending over 30 years together in “The Valley.” In his later years, he enjoyed drinking coffee with friends at the “Early shift at Bloomfield Show & Tell.” He is survived by three daughters, Carol (Donnie) Sines, Terri (Louie) Miller both of Bloomfield, Christine (Jim) Fuller of Blue Grass, Iowa; seven grandchildren, Tisha Palmer of Boone, Iowa, John (Sherry) Hawkins of Ottumwa, Iowa, Brent (Shannon) Miller of Norwalk, Iowa, Barbie (Tim) Slayton of Downing, Missouri, Becky (Aaron) Murphy of Osage, Iowa, Patrick (Marcy) Fuller of Ft.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; two daughters, Irina Lafrenz, Debra Marie Laws; grandson, Tim Lafrenz; and two sisters, Lois Woodley, Letha McIntire.
