One of his favorite pastimes was sharing his many stories of their bear, moose and deer hunting experiences. Later in life Oliver Tractors became a passion as he became involved in the Maine Antique Tractor Club and began pulling antique tractors at local fairs. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his family, with many memories boating on the lake as well as numerous days backyard poolside.
