It is with great sorrow that I tell you of the passing of Robert Partee Sr.  For those members that did not know Robert, he was the first sales manager for Oliver Travel Trailers. He was personally involved with the production and sale of all the original trailers produced in 2008 and 2009.


Although Robert left Oliver a couple of years ago, we remained in communication with each other.


Everyone please remember Robert's wife, sons and family in your thoughts and prayers.


I will greatly miss you my friend.

My wife and I first met Robert when we bought our trailer in 2014. Robert was was one of those rare individuals that you instantly trusted and became friends with. I doubt if Robert ever met a stranger. We are truly saddened to hear of the lose of this rare individual.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.  With our deepest sympathy,


Mike and Nancy

Early Oliver owners knew Robert well.  His smile and personable approach helped us greatly as we went through the process of selecting and building our Olivers. Robert was more than a super salesman, he was a friend, and he shall be fondly remembered and missed.  Godspeed, dear friend.

So sorry indeed. What sad news. Robert was also our first contact at Oliver, and clearly right from the start it was obvious this would not be an ordinary travel trailer partnership.


As others have said he was a guy you could trust, with a wry sense of humor and warm hearted. We wish his family well during these mournful times.

Sadness and sorrow can’t fully describe the loss all of the Oliver customers feel for Robert.  He was an advocate for us to fully understand our needs, exceed our desires and get it right the first time.


After Oliver started making the Elite II,  Robert helped me to convince Oliver to go back into production again on the Elite.  I live near Hohenwald and made many trips to Hohenwald as Robert and I worked together to get the unit I wanted.  Robert helped me by explaining the pros and cons of my selections, amenities and accessories.  Thanks to Robert, I am very satisfied with my Ollie.  During these trips, I became good friends with Robert.  We stayed in touch after I bought my unit.


I pray for Robert and his family.  I am extremely thankful for his kindness and understanding.  Robert, we will greatly miss you

I had a ton of respect for Robert as a co-worker and remained a friend after he left. Him leaving us has been tough to swallow. Prayers for his family. Missing Partee!
