Teddie Osborne was born on June 10, 1948, and died January 13, 2023, at the age of 74. Preceded in death by his wife, Edith (Edie); his parents, Euel and Irene Osborne; his parents-in-law, Fred and Ermel Pelfrey; his siblings and their spouses, Jay and Sandy Osborne; Timmy Osborne; and Diane and Everett Sharp; as well as his nephew, Hunter Moon, Teddie spent most of his life doing manual labor. He is survived by his daughter Tracy Osborne (Wendi Kozma) and his extended family – brothers and sisters-in-law as well as many nieces and nephews. People will remember him as the guy who could rig anything together just by looking at the picture. Teddie liked fishing with his buddy Roger, going to auctions where he ate plates of onion rings and placed bids on pianos and fishing gear. He enjoyed playing board games and cards, putting together puzzles, and watching westerns on television. He would always help anyone, anytime. And that’s how he would like to be remembered.
In lieu of flowers, Tracy has asked that donations be made to the Central Ohio Diabetes Association, 1699 W. Mound Street, Columbus, OH 43223; 614-884-4400.
A small, graveside service at Hill Cemetery (in Centerville/Thurman) will be held on Saturday, January 28 at 1:00 PM. Arrangements are under the direction of the Lewis & Gillum Funeral Home of Oak Hill. Online condolences may be sent to www.lewisgillum.com.
