About William James Osiier

I have many impressions of my GrandFather in my memory.

I remember him as being a kind and gentle giant of a man. Comfortable in his own skin with a deep love and patience for us. I remember sitting on the patio in his back yard on warm summer evenings watching fireworks in the distance, or watching the moths fly around the bug light.

I remember he grew strawberry's in his back yard and he would find box turtles eating his strawberry's. He never got angry at the turtles. In fact, he always seem amused by them.

Until his funeral I had never been exposed to death. Didn't know about death. Was not aware of my own mortality. I remember looking at him waiting for him to get up and laugh at the funny joke he had just played. But he didn't.

I still miss him to this day.
