Bless his heart! I loved Uncle Ollie. He was best man in my parents wedding. Lots of great memories camping with our families, picnics, weddings. Last I saw him was at my Dads funeral in 1988. Rest In Peace Uncle Ollie.

I was a good friend of Cheryl, and her father was a fixture in my life for 60 plus years. I spent a great amount of time at their home and was also a regular at cedar point for summer camping. Mr. Aulenbacher had a zest for life and was always on top of things , especially sports. Was lucky enough to celebrate some of his birthdays with him well into his 90's. He was a remarkable man and I am sorry for all who will miss him. I know his goal was to reach 100 and I am glad he made it. I am sure he will be welcomed with open arms by his daughter and wife in heaven!!
