Dr. Michael Roy Osborne of New Braunfels, Texas passed away on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital at the age of 64. A celebration of Mike's life will be held at Tree of Life Church in New Braunfels on Friday, March 8, 2013 at 2:00 PM. His father, Roy F. Osborne will be officiating. Mike's life began on April 4, 1948 in Denver, CO, born to Roy F. Osborne and Nova D. Potts Osborne. He met the love of his life, Phyllis (Diane) Wharton, at the San Leandro Church of Christ in California in the summer of 1965. As he always said, he "fell in love when I first saw her from forty yards away." Michael and Diane married on May 18, 1968 at The Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, CA. The Osbornes became a part of the city of New Braunfels in January of 1975. Mike served and protected our community as an officer and detective with the NBPD, at the same time, touching and healing the lives of many as a local chiropractor. He continued to administer loving care to his patients up until five weeks before his passing. His mother, Nova D. Osborne, preceded Mike in death. Survivors include his loving wife, Diane Osborne; son, Michael R. Osborne, Jr.; daughter Heather Ann Osborne Davis; son-in-law, Joshua Luke Davis; grandchildren, Maggie Victoria Osborne, Marshall Roy Osborne, and Luke Alexander Davis; father, Roy F.
