  • B. Zuber Posted June 9, 2024 3:06 pm

    I was so sad to hear the news. I loved learning all about farming and welding from him when he was in my STEM class in middle school. He always had a smile on his face and was one of the kids I looked forward to seeing each day. He’ll be missed!

  • Sylvia Hardy Posted June 10, 2024 8:40 am

    I was told by your dad that your mom saw an Eagle. That is a very special sign. It is the messenger carrying prayers. It’s a symbol of Honor, strength, courage, wisdom. Which you have and will give to your family. You will be with us all forever. Love you grand ma sylvia

  • Robin Peskar Posted June 10, 2024 9:15 am

    Never got to know you very well but living so far apart didn’t help. Will always remember you though

    I am so so very sad to hear about Oliver! He was such a sweet, kind student in my class! He shared his love of farming during his Genius presentation in second grade. Sending love and prayers to the Case family.

  • Doug Steinbronn Posted June 12, 2024 10:03 am

    I am so so sad to hear about the news of Oliver! Growing up on a farm as well, Oliver would stop in during his free time and we would talk farming. 8th grade students are not always willing to share things, but he had a real passion to share for his grandfather’s farm and the work that had to be done there. My heavy heart goes out to the Case family. I will be keeping your families in my prayers!
