We were sorry to hear about Octavio's passing, he was always so pleasant to visit with.Thinking of you!
If there were one union made in heaven, the love, adoration, respect and devotion between Octavio and Bodine would be it.
I met Octavio in 1965; Bodine in 1960. I've watched closely through the years as the synergy between these two jewels grew and grew. Truly, I have never known a love such as their's. Not in anyone.
My deepest sympathies to my dearest friend of 50 years, Bodine, and to all the Elias family.
Our sympathy to Bodine and Diana. From what we hear and read about Octavio, you were fortunate to have know and loved such a great man.
My heart are with you all
My deepest sympathy to you, the Elias and Junak families. He will surely be missed by all those that knew and respected him for all his accomplishments.
That was one of the most Dignified,
Loving and Touching services.
Bodine, my best to you and Mr. Elias family. It was a privilege to be acquainted with him, and I have good memories of our short talks.
Octavio was such an open and friendly man. Brightened things up when he was around. Our condolences to you and your family Bodine.

" May he be raised up on angels wings,
And held in the palm of His hands."
Also, May the Sacred Heart of Jesus grant you His peace.
Wendy Rodriguez, and family
I'm so sorry to hear about Octavio. He was such a great guy! We will all miss his special smile and gentleness. He was such a gentleman and so cheerful to all. I feel fortunate to have known him and have you in my prayers.
Octavio was always a gentleman. I talked with him more several years ago. I expressed once that I was going to Senora and he gave me names to look to for hospitality. His history was superb. The most about him that I shall remember is his kindness. My prayers go to Bodine and the family.
Everyone who knew Octavio during his lifetime has been left with a lot of wonderful memories. To Irma and I, both of you have been very special friends.
I first met Octavio during the effort to control development of the beachfront lots on Fifth and Mandalay Beach roads. He called me several times for lunch and I tried to ignore him but he was not a man to be easily dissuaded.
When we finally met, a special friendship developed that felt as comfortable as one that had existed since childhood.
During subsequent elections I was a recipient of his un-wavering support and encouragement. He was very comfortable with politics and baseball and understood what it takes to win.
The last time Irma and I shared him with you was in the playoffs at Dodger Stadium last fall prior to the world series when you took him in a wheel chair. It was very evident to us how much you cared for him and loved him.
I will always remember his unwavering loyalty, humor, strenghth, love of life, devotion to animals and to the Dodgers. I will never again sit at Dodger Stadium without thinking of him.
Go Blue y Adios, mi General!
Manuel M. Lopez
