Olen was a great source of blessing to me & our church ( Church of the Messiah). His encouragement, support, friendship, & love helped us to become a strong church at “the blue gym.” I will never forget him!

So sorry to hear of Olen's passing. Our prayers are with Dorthy and Tara, the family, and his church family. I did not know him as well as I know Dorthy, but he had a warm, welcoming and gentle spirit. He will be missed by all.
