Obituary for OLIVER LEROY HARROD

Oliver Leroy Harrod, affectionately known as "Ollie" was born on November 28, 1945 to the late Blanche Harrod of Calvert County, Maryland. He was called home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Oliver was raised by his two aunts, Dorothy and Bertha Holland, who nurtured him like their very own son after the death of his mother. He attended William Sampson Brooks High School in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Shortly after graduating, Oliver worked many years as a bricklayer alongside his dear friend, Eugene Ward. Oliver was loved by many and he always enjoyed joking with anyone he came in contact with. In his earlier years, Oliver's favorite hobbies were playing baseball at the Huntingtown Ball Field and playing Bid Whist card games with family and friends. Oliver also loved to bet on the horse races every chance he could, and despite his illness was overjoyed to have recently shared a day with his sons at the track just like old times. Throughout his life, Oliver became well known for his passion for gospel singing and he was a devoted
member of the Gospel Cavaliers. the True Gospel Singers. and Mother's Dream. Oliver also loved his Corvettes and would never sell any of them no matter how high the offers.

Oliver has always had a love of God and family. At age 23, he married the late Karen Smith Harrod and cherished three children from this union, twins Keith & Kevin Harrod and step-daughter Renee Smith.

On August 20, 2005, he was blessed to again unite in holy matrimony to Mabel Lee Kent. Oliver was adorned by two loving step-sons, James Savoy Jr. and Tyrone Davis.
