25 years after I moved from Tucson I finally returned for a visit. Funny, I stayed at the Westward Look. Ollie and I met in the bar, He did not drink anymore but we talked and laughed like it was 1 year gone bye and not 25. We have talked or emailed 3 or 4 times a week since. He came to CA in September and we played golf for 3 days. Ollie is my friend and I miss him. I have been texting him all week to let him know the house down the block was for sale again and I would move there if I could park my RV in his driveway. Obviously he did not answer. Ollie is my friend and today I am sad.

We were friends for 30 years, spent time together in Washington, D.C. and many hours together here. Your faith and friendship were a constant inspiration and your value to so many who you helped without question was immense. You are greatly missed.

OMT- prayers for your family. Now you will always have that elusive golf swing from the Yale days and the voice from the Wiffenpoofs.

Ollie wonderful gentleman you will be missed by many family and friends.
Peace to you now, for while on this earth you were one that lived life full.
Your smart wit, intelligence and kind ways were none to match.
Your laughter was contagious always to easy to engage with in conversation on any subject; you put people at ease. Only one Ollie.
