Memories Timeline


  1. You were one of the strongest people we’ve ever known and you touched so many lives. R.I.P. Oscar….we love you!

  2. We miss him already! We hadn’t seen him in a while because we didn’t want to bring germy kids around his health. But we enjoyed his knowledge & character. Not sure why but a memory that comes to mind is when he drove your bmw through the toll arms. I guess he was feeling invincible that day. He will forever be missed but I know he is no longer in pain. He is whole again probably getting everything just perfect for you to join him one day. I see him now kicked back with a glass of wine! The man could throw down more wine than anyone I’ve ever known! We love you & we pray for your peace & comfort!

  3. Oscar was a very smart man and will be missed dearly! Til we all meet again in heaven! 🙏🏻
