MONROE — On Feb. 6, 2020, we lost our “rock, teacher, hero and friend.” With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Eugene O. Davis, 82, Monroe. Eugene spent his final days surrounded by loved ones in Ogden, where he passed away peacefully.
Eugene was the adored youngest child of Dell B. Davis and Julia Rachel Olsen Davis born Feb. 17, 1937. He was born and raised in Provo with his three older siblings. After graduating from Lincoln High School, Eugene joined the U.S. Navy where he proudly served in Submarine Service. Eugene married his sweetheart Dixie Gordon July 30, 1960, in Provo. They were later sealed in the Logan temple. Eugene and Dixie moved to Monroe where they raised six kids. Eugene worked as a relay technician for Utah Power and Light for 34 years. After he retired, he served numerous missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with his wife.
Eugene is preceded in death by his parents; and siblings, Dora Davis, Wayne B. Davis and Lela Davis Stott.
