Ollie was made of Love, and will be missed by many friends in many places, who cherished his warm heart and sensitive caring soul.. He made a difference in the 43 years we got to spend with him living on the planet . He was a deep thinker, an intuitive philosopher, creative writer and gifted poet. He excelled at Men's Fast Pitch Softball, and Chess. He loved to be in Nature, and had a passion for fly fishing. Ollie nurtured & loved many animals. He was heard to say, "I like animals more than I like most people." Love of musicâ€‹ â€‹kept his life flowing for as long as he lived, as it did many in his generation. His music selection was vast and eclectic.
Thank-you Chicago Cubs, for winning the World Series last year, making this a good year to die. Broncos, time to step up!
Please, if you can, make donations in Ollie's name to a suicide prevention and/or mental health organization of your choice.
There will be a memorial sometime this Summer.
Onward through the fog.
