Our sincere condolences. I remember when Olin came into the B&C market when I was working there in high school. He was always so kind to me and enjoyable to have conversations with.

Olin was a sweet man. I loved talking to him and hearing of his adventures of his lifetime. He volunteered with KPD for many years. He was dedicated and loved this department. Praying for the family. Godspeed my friend.
