Oliver loved to spend time outdoors, especially fishing, camping, and hunting. Playing sports, especially softball and bowling, was one of Oliver’s favorite pastimes and he was honored to be inducted into the St. Charles County Sports Hall of Fame for Softball. He also enjoyed the peace of sitting outside swinging on his front porch, and he never missed his regular Tuesdays at The Corner Bar. Oliver was a treasured father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He was dearly loved, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
