Default Ollie Washburn

Ollie Washburn, an RV-6A driver and the host for the Love's Landing Fly-ins (and my Dad's next-door neighbor when Dad was still there) passed away last week (Tuesday, I think) after a short illness. I haven't seen an obituary, but Ollie himself posted on Facebook on Christmas Eve that he had been in the hospital since Monday that week and was not feeling well. Then last Tuesday condolences on his loss started showing up.

Ollie and Loreen hosted my Dad's Celebration of Life in 2008 and for that I and my family will always be grateful.

My condolences to Lorene & the family.

I always enjoyed the Loves Landing flyin Ollie & Lorene hosted.
They were the early ambassadors for the Florida RV group.

RIP Ollie.

Default Obituary

The funeral home web site includes his obituary. His memorial service was held on Monday, January 4. I never met him, but I do remember a pleasant email exchange with him several years ago. My sympathies to all who knew him.

P.S. From the funeral home web site: "In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to The American Heart Association."
