ROBIN WADE OLLIS

October 29 1967 - august 30 2020

Robin Wade Ollis, 52, of Hazen passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family on August 30th, 2020. Robin was born in Brinkley on October 29th, 1967 to the late Lester Ollis and Evelyn Burns Ollis.   Robin graduated from Brinkley High School in 1986 and joined the United States Navy shortly thereafter. After his Honorable Discharge, Robin spent eight years in Wisconsin making car parts. When Robin first went to the factory to inquire about a job, he was told that there were no openings. This did not dissuade him as he went back the very next day to ask again. After being questioned about showing up two days in a row, Robin stated he would show up every day until someone quit and they gave him a job. Well, no one quit but on the fourth day, the man in charge said he would find something for Robin to work on. That decision was a good one for the company as he was a dedicated and loyal employee before moving back home to Arkansas for good. Once back home, Robin originally went to work for the automotive company Hazen Powder Parts and spent eight years there before the factory shut down.  At this point, in his forties, he studied day and night to pass the test to become a Nephrology Laboratory Technician. He continued in this profession until his death. Robin put his faith in Jesus and was a member of the Brinkley Church of Christ. He was in bad health for many years and spent a lot of time praying. Those remaining to cherish his memory are his mother, Evelyn Brown; son, Jacob Williard; step-son, Justin "J.J." Strauss; and step-daughter, Hailey Strauss; step-grandchildren, Seth, Max, Allie, and Charlee Strauss; along with his aunt Delois Davis and other family and friends. Graveside service will be at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020 at Shiloh Cemetery, Holly Grove.
