Ollie will be sadly missed by the Mercy Housing Staff, Bishop Block, especially me. Ollie had worked for Steve Cook and I for several years as our part time maintenance staff. He brought so much laughfter to the building. He had a deep compassion for my daughter, as he called her blue eyes. She wrote potery, they clicked.

Like most kids after school we, my brother Chuck and me would head to the frig for a snack. Once in a great while, three or four times, we would find a clever riddle, or laugh funny note. Thank you Uncle Ollie.
The Fay Boys are all together again, love them all.

Ollie was a second father to me growing up. Our families moved together, kind of, from Waukon to West Union and we siblings each had best friends. I will always remember egg hunts, hiking at Echo Valley, camping at Dutton's Cave, mushroom hunting, canoeing, the smell of coffee and bacon over an open campfire......a great person has finally reached his rewards in Heaven.

One of my favorite memories of Uncle Ollie was what a great storyteller he was. He had The Scary Story that he told to all us kids when we went on family camping trips and no matter how many times we heard it, the end was always a "jump & scream". And his Brer Rabbit stories were classics. Bet he's up in Heaven right now regaling all those Little Angels in true storytelling mode.
