He served in WWII with the Army Air Corp in the South Pacific where he was assigned to the 345th Bomb Group "Air Apaches" flying the B-17, B-25, B-26 and later the P-61 Black Widow. After the war, he continued his love of aviation working as an Aerospace Engineer for Northrop and later Ford Aerospace where he retired from in 1989.

She won numerous awards for her work at both the LA and Orange County Fairs as well as at many art shows. Olga and Fred were married on November 17, 1946 in New Jersey. They moved to California in 1954 and eventually Anaheim in 1961. Loving and devoted parents, they always put the needs of their children ahead of their own. Their generosity and concern for others had a profound effect on all who knew them. Their loss will be deeply felt by many and will leave a void that can never be filled. Throughout their marriage, they were inseparable and remained so to the very end. A memorial service will be held on November 7, 1:30 p.m., at the Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana followed by a reception celebrating their lives.
