1930 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
HEATH, Olin Frank Jr. 87, passed away unexpectedly on August 8, 2018, at his home in Peabody, MA. He was the beloved husband of Wilhelmina (Gilchrist) Ogasian-Heath, with whom he had shared 32 years of marriage. Olin was born in Lynn in 1930 to his parents, Olin, Sr. and Doris (Snell) Heath. He was a member of Lynn English High School's class of 1948 and later served in the U.S. Navy. Olin devoted himself to his country as an accountant, serving during the Korean War. Upon being discharged from the military, he studied accounting at Bryant and Stratton, where he graduated in 1957. He went on to work as an accountant at Massachusetts General Hospital, from which he eventually retired. Though math was his first passion, he was known to be a man of knowledge and wisdom. He was an accomplished pianist, a connoisseur of trains, and a history buff, and his library reflected these hobbies. His greatest joy, however, was his family. He was a kind, gentle man who lived for his grandchildren. Olin found great happiness in both sharing his own passions with them and learning about his grandchildren's passions. Olin was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend, who always had a word of encouragement and humor to offer any situation. In conversation, he was a listener and took interest in the lives of everyone he met. His genuine care and support touched all he came in contact with. Olin is survived by his wife, Wilhelmina (Gilchrist) Ogasian-Heath; his children Keira Caitlin Palm and Wayne Heath; his stepdaughter, Johanna (Ogasian) and her husband Robert Morse; his stepson, John and his wife Diane (O'Grady) Ogasian; and three grandchildren, Samuel and Sarah Morse and Jennifer Ogasian. He was predeceased by his parents, Olin, Sr. and Doris (Snell) Heath.
