Oliver was my late father's best buddy and friend. Two young men leaving their birth place (West Virginia) and making a life in Ohio. Without their friendship our two families would have taken entirely different paths. Thank you Oliver! I am sure dad is welcoming you to heaven! Sheila (Satterfield) Lanning.

I worked with Oliver for many years at Griswald McDonald's. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word. He was always a great guy to work with, and I send my condolences to the family. Heaven just gained another angel.
