He was a mem­ber of Pleas­ant Val­ley Mis­sion­ary Bap­tist Church. In the past, he served on the boards of As­so­ci­ated Farmer’s Co-op and Faulkner County Farm Bureau. He was a mem­ber of the Toad Suck Car Club and the Two-Cylin­der Trac­tor Club.

O.D. was born on the way to Con­way in the Cadron Bot­toms and he spent most of his life farm­ing there. O.D. was a life­long farmer who learned it from his dad and he passed it down it his son. Early in his life he worked at the shoe fac­tory in the win­ter and farmed in the sum­mer. He also worked on the Ti­tan mis­sile bases. He spent many years rais­ing rice, soy­beans and cat­tle. He en­dured many floods and droughts as a farmer but he per­se­vered and never lost his love for farm­ing. Later in life O.D. de­vel­oped a hobby of col­lect­ing and restor­ing an­tique cars and an­tique trac­tors. He en­joyed go­ing to car and trac­tor shows, and he watched them on tele­vi­sion when he couldn’t go to them. He planted a much big­ger gar­den than was ever needed be­cause he liked watch­ing things grow.

He worked on these hob­bies as hard as he did on the farm. He loved dogs and al­ways had plenty of them around, most of them strays and wan­der­ers. As his health de­clined, he would drive over to the farm in his jeep, park and just en­joy the sights of har­vest.
