Craig and I just wanted to let you know that we are sorry for your loss. Oscar was one of a kind, when he was working at the Visitor Center, he was just a wealth of information. He was kind and took care of the visitors and made them feel welcome. Oscar will be greatly missed by one and all.

My heart was broken to hear the news of Oscar passing. I will miss him so much. He was truly such a wonderful man and I was so honored to know him and to help care for him. I will miss hearing his wonderful laugh and seeing him smile. I so enjoyed his occasional impromptu visits to see me when I worked at the hospital to ask for my advice and the hugs I got when he left. He will be missed by so many of the hospital staff, but none more so than me. My heart goes out his family and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I feel blessed to have known him.

Joyce and family
Oscar was an exceptional man!!! I may have been the “crazy redheaded nurse”  but no matter what Oscar was doing, whether being admitted to the hospital or just visiting a friend he always made sure that he came to give me a hug and check-up on me. He is such a wonderful man always putting others before himself. His smile would light up the darkest of rooms. It was always a pleasure taking care of him. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
With Love,
LynDee Simons LPN
