Obituary for Olin R. Mooy
Colonel Olin R. Mooy, USAF Ret., 87, of Dixon passed away on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. He was born and raised in Indiana. He graduated from Earl Park High School, earned his Bachelor degree from Ball State University and a Master’s degree from Baylor University.

Olin met his wife, Mary Ellen Kimes, when they were both teaching in the Earl Park area the year before he entered the Air Force and they have been married for almost 63 years. Olin had a lauded and varied military career, including bases from coast to coast and two remote tours overseas.

After retirement from the service, he worked in computer sales in Sacramento. He was a
longtime member of the Masons in Indiana and the Yolo Lodge locally, where he was honored with the Hiram Award for service to the organization and community. A longtime volunteer with Faith in Action, he was also an active member of the Dixon Community Church, Theta Chi, and helped start the first Computer Club at Solano Community College.

Olin enjoyed playing basketball in high school, college and for various Air Force teams. He became an avid Kings fan once the family settled in this area. In addition to basketball, airplanes and computers, he enjoyed gardening, flowers, photography and reading.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Mary and Evert Mooy, daughter Beth Mooy Durkin and brother-in-law Norman East. He is survived by his wife, sons Brian (Dixon) and Brad (North Little Rock, AR), and grandson, Jake Durkin, son-in-law Michael Durkin and his daughter Kaley Durkin, all of Buffalo, NY. Also surviving Olin are his sister, Audrey East, Kentland, IN and his brother Bruce (El Paso, TX), and his loved niece, nephews and sisters-in-law Kay Mooy (El Paso, TX) and Marjie Kimes, (Carmel, IN).
