He was a successful New York City music publicist, but after his wife Gertrude died immediately after delivering their daughter Gertie. unprepared Ollie became persona non grata in the entertainment publicity industry through a single incident largely putting his desire for professional success over his responsibilities as a father, and he returned to Highlands and he and Gertie moved in with his own father, Bart, until he could get back on his feet. That meant working side-by-side with Bart in the Borough of Highlands works crew, a job he still has.
