We feel that he was a balanced , caring, smiling warm hearted relative. When talked to him, most times it was with a big smile and a chuckle. We loved him very much and will miss him.

Otis was such a kind, sweet neighbor.
He had the most amazing garden. Many times he would show up on our door step with peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers that he had just picked.
Otis was always outside and would wave and smile every time we were out and passed his house.
I will miss his smile. He will be missed.

We will miss our get togethers with Otis and Ruth and the rest of the family. They were always a joy to be around. They didn't mine traveling to our home in Georgia to visit us and Ruth's sister Alma. We are sure happy we got to visit with him last fall when we came up to Ohio. We'll miss him and his good sense of humor.
Love Gary and Judy
