The following obituary was in the local newspapers. "In the death of Oliver H. Almy, the community has sustained more than an ordinary loss, and the writer, who has been a life-long friend of Mr. Almy, takes this opportunity of offering a tribute of respect to the deceased, and a word of sympathy to the bereaved family. Mr. Almy as a boy attended the public schools of his own town, and later prepared for college at Pierce Academy, Middleboro, Massachusetts. He later took up farming as an occupation. Mr. Almy served several times in the capacity of school committee and town offices, and many will remember his word of sympathy and cheer, and his advice was often asked in business affairs. In the death of Mr. Almy, Little Compton loses one of its valued citizens. At the time of his death he held the office of president of the Seaconnet Steamboat Company.
