“Hug-It-Out” came from our dear friend Bob Ojala. He passed away suddenly from heart disease at the young age of 49. Bob was a giant of a man both in stature and heart. He became friends with anyone he met, and left a very good impression. Bob was fun loving and loud, but in the best of ways. He was a man who had a gift, and could connect with anyone. He was great at reaching out and touching people every day.
Bob’s presence could literally cause a positive ripple effect on a group of people in a room. Everything was “The Best!” He would say, “This is the Best Day ever! That was the Best Sandwich, or piece of pie I ever had, or it was the Best game I ever saw!” And he absolutely meant it every time!
He was a man with integrity and always believed in the goodness of humanity. His way of saying hello was to pick you up and hug you. If he felt you were down he would ask “Do you need a hug?” or if there was conflict of any kind he believed you could just, “Hug-It-Out!”
So, our legacy to Bob Ojala is to continue the”Hug-It-Out” phrase, and anytime you wear it, or use it…you are reminded that you are promoting a good way of life with a positive connection. Here’s to you brother Bob, you were simply The BEST!
