We all remember him as "Oly." He had been one of our early moderators when the "forum" was very new and the site was very young (he was "member #918). He also wrote a number of Tech Tips for the site.

Oly had been really sick and they found out on October 31, 2011 from the VA doctors that he had Glioblastoma Multiforme (none operable) stage 4 cancer. At first the VA gave him two weeks to a month to live. Well, Oly proved them wrong and fought for 2 1/2 years. Oly became weaker as time went on.

Oly went for his last ride and passed us all on February 22, 2013.

and a further glimpse of the person behind the wheel:

b. Jan. 3, 1947, “Oly” served four years of active duty in the U.S. Navy from 1965-1969, and spent many years of his life as a logger and tree planter, firefighter, and volunteer first responder with the Camas Valley Fire Department. In the mid-1970s he also taught adult basic education at Southwest Oregon Community College where he held degrees in biochemistry/biology and criminal justice.

I am fighting cancer and I am winning the fight

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Pain is part of life; misery is an option.
