Charles Curtis “Ozzie” Osborne, 74 

Charles Curtis “Ozzie” Osborne, 74, went out with a bang on July 4, 2021 in Owensboro, Kentucky. He was a loving son, husband, father, pappy, uncle, and friend. Ozzie was born in Winchester, Kentucky on July 27, 1946 to the late Elton B and Mossie Osborne.

Legendary “Big O” dominated the basketball court at Clark County High School where he earned himself a basketball Scholarship to Auburn University. “WAR EAGLE”.

He is “BARELY” survived by his wife of 51 years, Vicky Sue; his children, Tiffany (Phillip) Howard, Melody (Craig) Edgar, Harmony (Greg) McCart, Coby (April) Osborne, Michelle Quagliana…oh yeah, we can’t forget Ward Hessig…along with his 7 grandchildren, Spencer, Aidan, Colt, Allyson, Miles, Cooper, and Harrison.

This larger-than-life man lived for and loved family, friends, sunshine, swimming pools, drag racing, a cold Ale-8, Cats basketball, Hoosier hoops, cold beer, Indianapolis Colts football, and T.V.’s Murder She Wrote.

All who knew Ozzie loved his passion and outlook on life. Some even say he was a man of vision…we say… “yeah, hell of a vision.”

The family will hold a Celebration of Life to honor Ozzie at the Hampton Inn and Suites, Downtown Owensboro / Waterfront on Saturday, July 24, 2021. Family and friends are welcome to drop by from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations to Hospice of Western Kentucky; 3419 Wathen’s Crossing; Owensboro, Kentucky 42301.

Haley McGinnis Funeral Home & Crematory is both honored and privileged to be entrusted with the care of Mr. Osborne. Share your messages of condolence with the family of “Ozzie” and sign his virtual guestbook by going to www.haleymcginnis.com
