    Oh my Gosh! Ollie! I was googling Ollie and came across this sad news. I wish I would have googled earlier. I’m about 10 years younger than Ollie. I worked with him at the Lockport Water Department as a college summer job in 77 and 78. I loved Ollie. Remember he tried to get me to join the Outlaws even though I wasn’t a biker because I was (still am) 6’4, 270 pounds. He was a hard worker and he also knew how to party and relax. Ollie taught me things about life. I wish I could have spoken to him before he passed. RIP Ollie
