My paternal grandfather, Frank Kennedy Jackson, died when I was five years old and Ollie's father "The Judge" had also lost his wife. My grandmother, Gertrude "Cole" Jackson married Ollie's dad in early September 1955 at St. Perpetua church in Lafayette. On that day "Young Ollie" became my uncle at age 35. He and his family always treated me and my sister with respect and kindness.
He will be truly missed and we have lost yet another "treasure".
