Olen was a loving husband, an awesome father and wonderful friend. He lived his life each day to please God, because he knew that each day was a gift from God. He loved to garden, and grew some of the biggest and sweetest watermelons you ever ate. He loved to hunt and fish, if you really wanted to get a smile on his face just say, get your fishing pole, and he was ready to go. Olen was a friend to everybody, he would do anything to help anybody. That just shows what a big heart he had. He was a hard working man and provided well for his family. Olen was a good example of a wonderful Godly Man.
