Cathy, I am so sad to hear this news. I worked closely with Ollie for several years at Dexter, and we traveled many times together to our factories in the Caribbean. He was a special person and certainly a mentor to me. He was a dedicated employee and a good friend.

Dear Cathy, my condolences to you and your family during these difficult times. I have had the pleasure to work along side Ollie at Dexter Shoe. He was a dedicated employee who helped me tremendously throughout my tenure there. I can assure you that he had the greatest respect from Mr. Alfond and Mr. Lunder. He knew how to get the job done regardless of any hurdles. You and your family should be proud of his accomplishments.
