We ran many advertisements for Ogelvie's World Tours and the subsidiary business, Leonard Land Travels, where all travel was with on land, by car, bus, or train. He also wrote travel articles for the Sunday addition. A very knowledgeable man.
Since we found no relatives in our brief inquiry and only people who knew Leonard Ogelvie superficially, we shall comment on our experience of this well-thought-of, though curiously private man. His only friend must have been the man who made the funeral arrangements and he left town immediately after the short graveside service.
Our offices have dealt with Mr. Ogelvie for over twenty years. He was always honest, straightforward, and prompt in paying his bills. In his early business days he was often hurried and somewhat abrupt, very focused on establishing his career. A sudden change came over him a few years back and all those working on the paper made note of it. We often noted how relaxed and amiable he became. The sudden adjustment in personality was odd, but none of us felt we knew him well enough to ask what was the pivotal point of his transformation, although we often speculated.
We announce his death today with sorrow. He was a man many would have like to know better. His sudden passing has brought home a truth we would all benefit from observing. A simple question, a few words of conversation, and we might have known how a gruff business man turns into a kindly, thoughtful, but reclusive entrepreneur. His businesses thrived after this alteration, but his personal life seemed stuck in an undeveloped state. Our chance to befriend Leonard Oglivie has passed. The picture below was submitted anonymously, handed to us by the mortician at Heavenly Estates, and presumably taken by the friend who arranged for Oglivie's last resting place.
