Notes for Omar Jean WILSON
His nickname of "Grampy" came from his first grandchild.

He worked virtually until the day he died. His death might have had something to do with the fact that he had to pay an enormous amount of capital gains tax to the IRS, an institution he despised, after selling a piece of property he had owed for some time. Shortly afterward, his health deteriorated, and he never recovered.
