Anyone who came to visit could count on being welcomed with hospitality and love. He was a volunteer for the Deer Park High School booster club and also could be counted on to give umpires plenty of grief when any of his grandsons were playing baseball. He was a coach for his girls’ softball; leaving a positive impact on every girl who played on his team, many who are still family friends to this day. On his off time, Olan loved fishing and hunting and taught his grandsons and many of their friends how to fish in Galveston Bay. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. One person once said if Olan cooked a 4x4 they would eat it, which was a tribute to his cooking abilities. He cooked barbeque for many benefits and other causes through the years and never shied away from the opportunity to help anyone in need. Olan introduced dozen’s of people to the joys of camping on the Guadalupe River at River Road Camp where Sharon and Arlon Mosely welcomed him every year. Olan is joining his boyhood friend Donald Brunson in Heaven where they can relive their fishing trips on the Brazos River and also teach others the “East Waco Shuffle.” Olan was a member of the Deer Park Masonic Lodge since the early ‘70s.
