Known to friends as “Obbie,” Obbie passed on to the next life on Monday, Sept. 19, at his home in Pagosa Springs, of natural causes.
He leaves behind a daughter, Faythe-Harmony, of Poolesville, Md., as well as many friends in Colorado and across the country.
Obbie had a passion for nature and loved spending time in the mountains, where he felt happiest and most at home. Before retiring to Pagosa Springs, Obbie had spent most of life providing spiritual counseling, which he did on his many journeys around the country. His natural gift for counsel and gentle manners helped many along the spiritual path. His unwavering faith in the Creator sustained him throughout his life and is a deep well of inspiration to his family and friends.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, Oct. 16, at 1.30 p.m. at Ute Drive Park in Aspen Springs, to be conducted by Pastor Mark Disbrow of Amazing Grace Community Church.
