He was a faithful member of First Baptist Church in Belzoni.

Some of Ollie’s happiest days were spent at the old Reed Deer Camp near Fitler with his sons Chad and Lance and a very eclectic group of friends from everywhere. Many days after a long hunt, Ollie would unsaddle his horse Silver and send his sons and the rest of the camp boys to town to buy huge ribeye steaks and all the fixings for his signature Ollie Salad. Long after the traditional camp evening meal of fried deer meat and vegetables had been served and cleaned up, the horse riders and many other late-night diners would enjoy Ollie’s feast, which often lead to a friendly game of cards. Ollie was generous to a fault and would give a friend anything that he had. He loved entertaining and cooking for others, especially at the Blue Room in Belzoni on Catfish Festival weekends and other special events.
Honorary pallbearers are Hall Barret, Denon Braswell, Allen Bridgers, Greg Burton, Gene Cline, David James, JJ Pannel, John Shelton, the Blue Room Crew, and the Reed Deer Camp Horsemen.
Memorials may be made to First Baptist Church in Belzoni, Mississippi, or the charity of your choice.
