Oliver Frederick Niner

February 1, 1929 ~ March 13, 2018 (age 89)

Oliver Frederick Niner, 89, of Oakland, MD died Tuesday, March 13, 2018, at his home.

Born February 1, 1929 in Crellin, MD, he was the son of the late Charles W. and Cora E. (Bucklew) Niner. He was also preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Dorothy A. (Friend) Niner; three sons, Richard Niner; David L. Niner; Kenneth P. Niner; a brother, Elmer Niner; a sister, Audrey Harvey.

Oliver was the owner of Niner Construction Company and was a stone mason and equipment operator. Although he loved running his equipment his work as a stone mason has left a mark on the area. There are numerous homes in Garrett County that have fireplaces and stone exteriors displaying his true talent.

He is survived by a son, Roger L. Niner (Darla), Oakland; two daughters, Marilynn S. Echols (Paul), Orlando, FL; Helen L. Stephens (Michael), Oakland; a sister, Leota Warnick, Oakland; nine grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank his caregivers, Judie Hopkins, Terry Friend, and Tracey Uphold for all they did for Oliver and the family.
