We’re so sorry about the loss of your brother, Oggie. He certainly did a lot of great and generous things in his life. We know he will really be missed by his family. Can’t help but comment how I see your sweet mother’s face in his. Praying for your peace.

Oggie was my late brother Dallas's lifelong best friend, so I grew up around him and made the early morning treks to MHS for summer football practice. Years later, I took my son fishing in his backyard at Madison. He dealt with MS bravely for many years. He was a hero to me and many others.

My "HERO" at the Leaksville Boys Club. He was a special person and cared so much for all the boys at the club. I have many fond memories of playing football with him in the lot across from the old Boys Club and playing baseball at the old ball park. He was a one of a kind individual.
