Later he went to work for himself in telephone repair work in residential and commercial applications, and with the local public-schools. J.O. was a longtime member of the First Baptist Church in Blair and he enjoyed being outdoors, camping trips, stockcar racing, riding ATV's, and he always enjoyed attending and being a part of his grandchildren's activities.
