Going to baseball games, fishing, going to more baseball games as well as basketball games too. Working in the garden.......and he definitely inherited Mom's green thumb as he could grow most anything. I missed that gene so was a little envious.

Thank you Bonnie for sharing such a great human being. If not for you I may have never met a more straight forward and friendly person. Ollie we will be sharing great stories of you and some of your jokes for years to come. They do not make them any more real and caring then you. You will be missed by many. RIP

My thoughts and prayers to the Oliver sisters and their families. Your dad was a hoot and I remember many good times back when Kristi was in college. He was the duct tape KING and could fix anything! I will always remember his chuckle and still don't know how he survived raising 5 girls!! LOL! But how he loved his daughters and all their families. He will be missed.
Sending big hugs!!
Cid and Rob Chase
