Wow, words can't express the feeling and "gone too soon" becomes an understatement. I'm glad to have served with Maj O at RAF Lakenheath, England. When my sponsor heard I was a motorcycle rider, she linked straight to him. Over the course of our assignment I saw him as a man who loved life and most importantly his family. As a fellow man of Nigerian ancestry, I did tease him about finally visiting Nigeria. Maj O was definitely an influential millennial who always found ways to inspire whenever and wherever. Rest in the comforting arms of the lord...your spirit lives on!

Maj Osakue ans I were deployed together last year. He was a dedicated worker with a strong sense of ethnics. His commitment to compliance was known to all. His smile was contagious. I recalled incidences in which he displayed humility and compassion at levels most of us couldn’t. He taught me discipline and perseverance in life. Your kindness will be missed. What an outstanding officer you made! The Air Force just lost a true warrior today.

Like the others, I met Maj O on a recent deployment. For over 190 days, this man ran and worked out twice a day. EVERY day. At work, he ensured everything was done above reproach, and he lived his life that way.
Every Saturday morning, Steph, myself, and Dillon would play basketball during that deployment. His smile, charisma, and deep love for basketball shoes will forever be engrained in my mind.
We talked about so many things in our short time together, and he even let me know the first time he got to see King James play basketball. I've kept in contact with him since returning, and had sent him a message over the weekend.
Maj O, you are a gifted and absolutely wonderful spirit. The best view of Kuwait is the one leaving.

I met Maj Osakue on a recent deployment and he was very respectful, caring and helpful. He was true to his medical profession and assisted anyone who needed help. I send my condolences to the family and pray that you all stay strong I’m faith.

I met and worked with Stephen on a recent military deployment. He has a contagious smile and giggle that always made my day. We loved to make him show us how to dance properly as he continued to point out that we were doing it wrong. I will also always know him as "cookie monster" as he just can't say no to cookies. He was very dedicated to his job and ensuring everything was done by the book. He was also willing to help out anytime I needed him. This is a huge loss for everyone! Your deployed family misses you
