The family will forever be grateful to his long time and special friend Debbie Prater, her parents and children, who loved and cared for Oba over the past 17 years.  They would like to thank all the staff at Crystal Care Center in Franklin Furnace, OH for all the love and support they provided to him while in their care.

Oba loved music, especially his favorite band KISS, his favorite team the Kentucky Wildcats, he loved to hear the Word of God and was a member of the Church of God Faith.  He will be remembered for his smile, laugh and sense of humor that everyone knew and loved.  If Oba could leave each of you with something he would say, love with all your heart, in this life none of us are perfect, but we are forgiven by the Grace of God.  Don’t cry for me, I am not gone, I am not in pain, I am at peace now resting in my Heavenly home.  There is no more pain and no more sorrow.  I loved you all and will always be with you.

At Oba’s request no services will be held.  A private memorial will be held at a later date.

If you would like to donate in his memory, please donate to the Crystal Care Clinic, 4734 Galia Pike Franklin Furnance, OH 45629.

    I wanted to extend my sincere condolences on your loss. Being separated from our loved ones in this way was never meant to happen, but the Bible offers comfort for us. The verse at 2 Kings 20:5 may offer some solace to you, as it has to me.

    You can pull all the strings for the call button you want now! They won’t park you in the middle of the room so you can’t reach it no more. Thought the world of you. Go rest now. No more pain, no more looking at your food tray wishing they would let you have a bite. Yes, I saw all this and I reported it but nothing was done. Im not going to be quiet about it now either. I’m so sorry you had to endure that. But now you’re at peace. Fly high!
