He was born in Alton, Missouri on April 16, 1932, the son of the late Wright Ollar and the late Estella (Blankenship) Ollar. On April 2, 1955, Dow was united in marriage to Dwilla (Anderson) Ollar. She preceded him in death on November 15, 2017. Dow and Dwilla worked side-by-side for 26 years as owners and operators of East End Market. He later worked in the meat department at Moser's. Dow enjoyed attending Callaway Christian Church each week. He could often be found sitting in his swing in the front yard. Dow's pride and joy were his grandsons and great-grandsons and referred to them as "My Boys".

Those remaining to cherish his memory include daughter-in-law, Brenda Ollar of Fulton; grandsons, John Ollar (Alisha) of Fulton, and Joshua Ollar (Taylor) of Fulton; and great-grandchildren, Carson, Kaidance, and Bentley Ollar, and Kynlee who is scheduled to arrive in October.
