Jim, Scott & families: I am so sorry for your loss. Oliver was a very kind person. I have known him since we were babies on the "cradle roll" at Mint Hill Church.

The thing I remember most about Uncle Oliver was his love and pride in the vehicles he owned. I think that was a trait all the Shockley boys shared. It was always an honor if you got the opportunity to drive one of their trucks, but terrifying as well! I know when I drove dad's (Cletus) truck, I drove slow and parked it well away from any other vehicle. He would know if there was any new minor scratch on it anywhere! I was always soamazed ofUncle Oliver's knowledge of cars. I remember the days and nights of playing at the shop downacross fromHoward Steffens house. The great big gravel piles there were so much fun to play on. Uncle Oliver always had soda in his refrigerator for us kids and beer for him and dad and any friends that happened to stop in and talk awhile. He always had a smile and a story. He will be missed by many!
