Oscar Obdulio Clara (Ula), 79, of Roselle Park, New Jersey, passed away on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Oscar was born to the late Victor Manuel Clara and Maria Antonia Ruiz Clara, in Escuintla, Guatemala. He was a dedicated husband, father, father-in-law, uncle, and friend. He had a passion for books and always helped those in need. He came to the United States in the late 1960’s, worked hard, and made his American Dream by working in the Jewelry Business in New York City. He lived in Brooklyn, New York for over 20 years, and finally settled in Roselle Park, New Jersey. In 2004, he retired and dedicated his life to helping raise his grandchildren. He loved his family, his home, and dreamed of one day returning to his beloved Escuintla.

There are many memories I can think of with your family that make me smile. From coming to your house at 10am waking you guys up to staying all day and your dad ordering us yummy Chinese food. He loved his chicken wings ❤️ And always there to pick us up and drop us off. Even would try to offer me 5.00 when we were going to the store and he would give rosanelly money he would treat me just like her. And when I came over always welcomed me with a smile and a hug. I will truly miss him and truly love him like a second father. His memories will
Always live on and I can't say enough what an amazing man and father and grandfather he was. One of the best people I knew ❤️ RIP Oscar you will forever be thought about and loved. Love you all my second family ❤️❤️
