OBITUARY

Oscar Woodberry Jr.

July 22, 1957November 12, 2020

Oscar Woodberry Jr. was born on July 22, 1957 to Oscar Woodberry Sr. and Teola Boozer.

He was the youngest of 10 siblings. He was a member of the Willow Grove Baptist Church of Phoenix, AZ during his childhood, and a devout man of God his entire life. Oscar attended South Mountain High School where he played football until he graduated in 1975. He then moved to Las Vegas, NV where he met and married the love of his life, Faithlyn “Dee Dee” Arms. They were happy and in love for 44 years, and had two daughters from their union, Cynnamon and Jazmine. He was the youngest steward at the Stardust Hotel and Casino at the age of 19, in charge of 10 kitchens. This was due to the work ethic instilled in him from his father and mother. Oscar passed multiple state boards for licensure in electrical, plumbing, air conditioning and heavy diesel mechanics which allowed him to open his own business, Woodberry Refrigeration. He then went to work for Penske Truck Leasing where he served as a branch manager over the entire southwest region, which included Hawaii, Arizona, Nevada, and California for more than 20 years. A man of few words, Oscar was known for his laughter, his smile, and his love for his family. Oscar leaves behind in mourning: his wife, Faithlyn “Dee Dee” Woodberry; four daughters, Phyllis Owens, Kimberly Shedrick, Cynnamon Woodberry, and Jazmine Woodberry; and 6 grandchildren. Also his five sisters, Shirley Cheatham and Dorothy McFadden of Phoenix, AZ; Mamie Blythe of New York, NY; Gloria Bourgeois of Las Vegas, NV; and Eula Woodberry of Houston, TX; as well as one brother, Reppy Woodberry of Phoenix, AZ. He also leaves to mourn Edmond and Lucille “Maxine” Cooper, his father and mother in-law of Las Vegas, NV, Carl and Cherise Cooper and Eric and Eileen Cooper of Los Angeles, CA. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins, and friends. Rest in God’s Love Oscar! Until we meet again. Memorial services will be held at 2:00PM on Friday November 20, 2020 at Palm Cheyenne Mortuary, 7400 W. Cheyenne Ave, Las Vegas, NV. Arrangements were handled by King David Memorial Chapel.

This has been extremely hard for me. What can I say about an uncle that helped raise me as his daughter. A man that was always there no matter if the behavior was good or bad. I loved him and he loved me. There isn't enough words ,pictures or space to share my memories of him. My heart is full of love for him but also deeply injured. My uncle oscar will be truly missed 😢

MY heart is saddened upon hearing of the death of my nephew, Oscar! I say My Nephew because In our family My Mother never allowed us to use the title of In-law and that is how I feel about Oscar I could call on Oscar anytime and he would come running to my rescue. Now the Lord has called him from service to reward. Oh, how glorious it will be when we all get to see him again !!

Though I never met Oscar, I saw how his love and parenting, along with Dee Dee's, created Jazmine, who I am proud to call one of my dearest friends. I send my deepest condolences to the Woodberry family. May his memory be a blessing to you all.

It's funny how life's events make you go down memory lane. I remember Oscar ,Anthony Hankins and Gary Hodge were the 3 muskateers. You never saw one without the other being near by. We all attended South Mountain High together. I want to give my condolences to my niece Phyllis Woodberry-Owens and the entire Woodberry family to Dee Dee and their children I pray god grant you peace knowing he is resting in the Lord's hands.

I am so sorry for the loss of Mr. Oscar. I had never met Mr. Oscar however, I have the pleasure of working with his spouse Dee Dee. Dee Dee always spoke highly of Mr. Oscar. I remember her showing me a picture of him, all I remember about the picture was "A tall Handsome man". May GOD give Mrs. Dee Dee and her family the strength to endure through these troubled times. And note you will be seeing him again in Heaven. May GOD be with you all. GOD BLESS!
