  • This evening it was was shocking to know Oliver passed away. I was a junior to him in school and always admired his athletic skills at ST. Patrick's high school. Later in life we worked together in the oil fields for almost five or more years. He would always crack jokes for laughs and would always motivate every individual to stay happy and forget all the miseries in life. Quinton & Maria Karachi
