Ollie was loved very much by his extended family. Their love was returned, the "in-law" was removed. Ollie's heart was full of love for his wife, children, and grandchildren. He was a simple man who enjoyed every little thing in life. He never asked for much for himself, but would do anything, and give everything to his family.
