This was Nellie Olson's dad, right? The occasional voice of reason during attacks by the tornado of wrath that he raised?

Ha - yes Octo, he was Nellie's Dad. I seem to remember her taking after her shrew of a mother.

I always felt bad that such a nice man was stuck with such an awful wife. Nelly sucked but Willie was okay most of the time.
