I am so sorry for you loss. Ozzy was a constant and pleasant presence at Greenbank with an infectious smile. If I heard a Sens game playing on Level 0, I knew Ozzy was at work. He is gone too soon.

Ozzie with his good cheer and smile brightened so many of my days while working at the Greenbank Police Station. He did the same for many. I never heard him utter a bad word about anyone. His kindness and gentle smile will live in my memory and heart forever. RIP with our Lord whom I am certain is very pleased with you. Good bye my friend.

I pray that the Lord will be a quiet, comforting presence to the family during this difficult time, just as Ozzy was for me when I first started working out of Greenbank station in May 2016. He was not a man of many words, but I always knew that he was proud of me, and that he was looking out for me; it brought me great comfort knowing that he was around, even when I didn't see him. In the same way, in spite of the pain and sadness of this time, know that God is looking out for you and He is there even when you can't see Him. My sincerest condolences to the family. -- Jacqueline

No words can describe the terrible loss felt by all who knew him. When I first met Ozzy at work, I found him to be a very quiet man. As the years passed, I got to discover his smile, the twinkle in his eyes and his laughter. I loved his Jamaican accent. I became used to his morning visits and our daily chats, teasing him about the Canadiens being the best team ever knowing he preferred the Sens. I don't know that he truly understood my love of cats, but he certainly endured, always with a smile, endless minutes of me talking about them. A great soul appreciated by all who crossed his path. Heavy-hearted now, but in time, thinking of him will bring a smile to all who knew him and loved him. I will miss you, Ozzy. Work will certainly not be the same without you ...

Ozzy was a quiet man. He opened up a bit once he got to know you. He was always a fixture at Greenbank station, and he was with OPS longer than me! Most recently, we had short chats about his love of playing Lotto, and joking around about sports. A Colleague bought Ozzy a Leafs hat to wear, but I'm sure it looks as new as the day it was bought, since he likely never wore it! Go Sens, Go Raptors. Rest in Peace, Ozzy.

Ozzie will be sorely missed. He was a great member of the Ottawa Police family. For all of us that had the honour and privilege of knowing him, we are thankful and are richer because of this. We miss you and your larger than life smile, but we know your spirit will live on. Rest in Peace.
