Oliver was born in Morenci and lived in Mammoth and Tucson. Oliver was a loving and proud father, grandfather, brother, husband, uncle and friend. He enjoyed barbequing in the company of his family, playing softball, fishing, and displaying his prized scorpion collection.

He leaves behind his five brothers, five sisters, 15 grandchildren and two great grandchildren; Norma Sandoval; three stepchildren, and two step-grandchildren.
