A brief blurb about great grandpa Ollie

Colaborador: tfinney22 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Great grandpa “Ollie” joined the military when he was about 20 years old. By the time his platoon reached England, however, the war was ending. One day, he was spending time with several soldiers that had decided they each wanted to get a tattoo, so they convinced him to go with them. When they arrived, they said “Nielsen, you go first.” Ollie agreed to go first, but by the time his tattoo was complete, all the other soldiers “chickened out” and decided not to go through with it. His daughter, Lorna, said “growing up, I always saw my dad with that tattoo on his arm and didn’t think anything of it. It wasn’t odd or weird, it was just a part of him.” When Oliver got back from the war, he was married to Erma and moved to Taylorville, Alberta to be a farmer. Every week, the property they lived on had one day of access to irrigation water a week, to water their farm, garden, and/or yard. They never knew which day would be their turn, but when it was, Lorna remembered her dad spending the day outside making sure that everything got watered. When the Cardston area finally got water flowing through the water lines, Oliver thought he had “died and gone to heaven.” Suddenly he was able to get instant water at the turn of a knob, which would allow him to water his garden whenever he pleased. He was generous to his neighbors, often taking them produce from his garden. Several years later, Ollie found out that he could earn more money as a truck driver. While he was trucking, he would keep an eye out for any objects that were left on the open road, and would often take items home to be used in some way or another. “He was quite thrifty in that way,” his daughter, Lorna, said. “Often, he would find a piece of clothing left on the highway, and bring it back home just in case someone in the family or neighborhood could make use of it.” Oliver was a very good man. He was humble, kind, and cared so much for others. His goodness was truly manifested in the way that he lived his life and how he treated others. He wasn’t necessarily known as a scriptorian, but his drive to serve others made him a faithful and helpful hometeacher and he didn’t aspire to be anything more. **Stubbert, Lorna A. Interview. 17 Oct. 2017.

Life timeline of Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen

1897
Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen was born on 5 Oct 1897
Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen was 6 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen was 15 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen was 31 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen was 42 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Oliver Fredrick (Ollie) Nielsen was 60 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
