With the such sad news that Ollie passed away on Sunday the 8th of April to another place leaves so many dear family, friends and acquaintances with a heavy, heavy heart.  He is already dearly missed. The bigger the dent the 'oh so inspirational the person. He was a truly loving and devoted husband, friend, son and brother, uncle, best man, godfather, manager, coach and inspirational motivator.

He fought so hard to stick around but it looks like the universe had other plans. We know that the pain of today in remembering Ollie will, one day, be a gift that celebrates our time with him.

We will keep this campaign open for two more months for the opportunity for those who wish to contribute towards the costs that will arise over the coming weeks/months with the logistics and the change of plan for Milena and family.

Thank you freinds, family and golden community. The emotional support has been epic, but that aside, the response to the campaign was incredible. What has been fundraised thus far in this GoFundMe and two other projects has enabled Milena to be by Ollies side and for the two of them to not even think about how to cover daily costs of a house, car and dear dog, and the rest of life’s monetary demands over the past year.

Thank you kindly for all who have contributed over 100 people so far in this campaign alone.  The response not only helps/ed tremendously in the daily cost but the number of people who contributed was overwhelming. That shows what an impression Ollie made on others. 

His motivational video which he recorded in December sums up Ollie attitude.  As he said, it’s a choice.

Rest in peace dear Ollie. You leave a loving community missing you though you will stay in our hearts and fond memories.

 

#Olliestrong , @Ollieamazing and Ollie is an inspiration.

This is where Ollie has been laid to rest. The Welsh memorial was a day, once again, to make the man proud with a packed church full of community, school friends, childhood buddies, family and some who even flew from the US.
Family and friends once again spoke of his charismatic personality, comical moments, life achievements and admiration of love.
Thank you to all who have supported in so many ways. The contributions to this campaign are of immense help to Milena and an honor for Ollie as she is supported by loved ones and people who care.

Tributes, practicalities and oh so important healing tools are part of what these funds are going to. Thank you with all our hearts, none- the-less Ollies.

He smiles upon us. x

My ‘champion minded’ brothers funeral will take place this weekend in Florida.
Milena, Ollie’s beautiful wife will then be escorting him home next week to Wales.
We will then be having a memorial service in St Illtyds church, Llantwit Major on Tuesday 24th April at 2.30 pm.
This will be followed by a major celebration of Ollie’s life in the way that Ollie would want at Llantwit Major rugby club.
This is an open invitation for anybody who knew or was touched at anytime by Oliver’s infectious personality.
If anybody would like any further information or help with directions or accommodation please message me personally.
Finally I, on behalf of all his family would like to thank everybody for the love, support, messages and shares at this obviously difficult time.
God bless you all.
R.I.P.
Love you bro.

Due to the loss of dear Olli on Sunday the 8th this campaign has changed slightly to the funds going towards the costs for Milenas change of plan and towards seeing him off both in Miami and in laying him to rest in Wales. I know Ollie is grateful to us all for supporting her and each other.
You, dear Ollie, will always be an inspiration.
The campaign will stay up for two more weeks.
Love you Champ.
