Upon graduating high school at Barton, Oscar proudly served four years in the Navy. Oscar held several jobs, but the one he felt was most rewarding was in the funeral industry. He looked at this as a ministry, which allowed him to help others during their time of need. He was also a Phillips County deputy coroner for many years, where he served with great warmth and care. Serving others, no matter how small the gesture, brought Oscar joy and was something he did at every opportunity.

Family will receive friends at the church at 10 a.m. with the funeral beginning at 11 a.m. and burial following at Central Cemetery in Lexa.
