Ollie was a commercial fisherman and shrimper for most of his life. He even named his boat “Miss Tina” after his first born daughter. He worked hard for his family to where they were never in need of anything. His hobbies were dove hunting and fishing. Ollie never met a stranger and was known to always give candy to the children he met. Ollie was a wonderful father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be dearly missed.
