Lynn H. Davis August 4, 1924 - September 2, 2018 Lynn H. Davis (94) was born at home in Venice, Utah on Aug 4, 1924 to his parents John Lorenzo Davis and Florence Cowley Davis. He left this mortal existence on Sept 2, 2018 in Logan, Utah surrounded by many who loved and cared for him. His early childhood was spent on the family farm in Venice, Utah among his brothers: Leslie, Ellis, Lawrence, Reed and sisters Gaye and Mary. Lynn grew up in that small rural community where most his cousins lived next door or around the corner. They became not only his classmates but also his best friends. It was here in that small town that he learned the value of hard work. Lynn attended Venice Elementary with multiple grades to one teacher. For High School he attended Richfield High. Staying after school for any reason meant he was expected to hitchhike home. As was the way of life, he always had farm chores to attend to before and after school. Upon graduating from high school while World War II was raging he received a "farm deferment" to continue working with his father while his brothers were serving in the military. He later served in the Navy as a Medic. Because the war was coming to an end he was able to stay stateside and was stationed at Camp Dunlap Hospital in California, serving the wounded who returned. Utah State University was the school he chose to attend. His quick wit and bright mind served him well as he attended college. It was during his time in Logan that he met Luana Johnson. She loved his red hair and was quickly smitten. They married on April 24, 1945 in the Logan Temple. From this union were born 8 children: Steven Lynn (deceased-Beth Myler), Lynnette Louise (Keith Pickett), Julia Ann (deceased), Jane, Patricia (Scott Marshall), Jay Johnson (Shaley Smith Spring), LuAnn (Kent Erickson) and Paul Ray (Julie Gardner). Luana joined Lynn in California while he continued to serve his country. She returned to Logan, Utah when expecting their first child, Steven. Upon an honorable discharge from the military he returned to his studies at USU. He graduated with highest honors with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and became a county agent in Clark County, Nevada. He returned to USU to pursue a master's degree and then continued on at Oregon State University for his doctorate in Agricultural Economics. Upon completion of his PhD he returned to USU to teach for 35 years. Always a farm boy at heart, these degrees allowed him to rub shoulders with the farmers and ranchers of the area while teaching and doing research. During his time at USU he had consulting assignments in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Senegal, Africa. Lynn became a Farm and Ranch appraiser (where he excelled), a licensed real estate broker, and the owner of the Double L Ranch- a red angus cattle ranch at the base of Crow Mountain in Smithfield (fondly called the Double L-for Lynn and Luana).His favorite saying was "All is swell on the Double L". Always a wheelin' dealer he loved buying and selling almost anything. He will be missed by many. His sweetheart of 73 years Luana survives him, as well as his sister Mary Jensen (Marcus), his children and his posterity of 28 grandchildren and 48 (and growing) fun great-grandchildren. A warm thank you to those who have extended hands of care and comfort at this time. A special grateful heart to his daughter Jane who relocated to help take care of him.
