I would like to send condolences to the Felton family. I had not seen Mr Felton in many years but remember what a nice man “Olie” was. I first new him as a child, he was a friend of my Aunt & Uncle (Bob & Anne Schmit), then as an adult I waited on him at The Bluff years ago. I remember him being a very active person, especially his tennis playing. He was always smiling and friendly and I know he had a long and productive life. It is never easy loosing a parent. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
