Otis was a great role model and left a positive impact wherever he went.  He was a loving husband, father and grandpa.  He was born and grew up in and around Troy Iowa, served in the Army and then moved to the Cedar Rapids area.  He retired from Linkbelt/FMC and moved back to the Troy area.  He and Judy loved to see the United States and traveled by RV in their retirement.  Otis loved to tinker and learn, if he couldn’t fix it, it wasn’t broken.  Among his many other hobbies he taught himself to paint in retirement.  His family and friends will miss his smile, humor and wit.
