David Scott Osborn


August 18, 1964 - October 20, 2012

On October 20, 2012, a Saturday morning David Scott Osborn passed away. Let us remember that no single act of desperation can define a life. No matter how stalked by pain, Scott’s life also had its moments of delight and happiness, caring and friendship, sharing and love. He was an avid lover of Harley Davidson motorcycles, hunting, Sons of Anarchy and a gun collector. He was a great husband, father, son, brother, uncle and a loyal friend to which there was no limit of caring he had for those in his life. Scott will always be remembered while you watch the waves crash onto a beach, or see a sun rise and set for the days ahead. Scott “Oz” was a hard working Navy man. He joined the United States Navy on February 17, 1987, where he was not only a Deep Sea Diver but a Salvage Expert and received several honors and awards for his service. He experienced the world with what it had to offer and all its wonders. Scott retired as a Chief Petty Officer on July 31, 2007, to spend more time with the huge family he always wanted. Here is a quote to always remember him by…

“The Navy Diver is not a fighting man, he is a salvage expert. If it is lost underwater, he finds it. If it’s sunk, he brings it up. If it’s in the way, he moves it. If he’s lucky, he will die young, 200 feet beneath the waves, for that is the closest he’ll ever get to being a hero.”

Scott was married to Dawn Michelle McDaniel-Osborn on June 13, 1988, (she preceded him in death on March 1, 2002) and they had 4 beautiful girls, Brittany (23), Taylor (20), Emily (18) and Courtney (15). Scott then married Laurie Ann Keel-Osborn on August 1, 2003, and this marriage added even more children to the family: Justin Sutherby (31), Danny Rowan (20), Trinity Rowan (13) Crystal Mollett (24) and Sarah Mollett (27). Survivors also include, Linda Lee-Dieter (mother); Robert (Bob) Dieter (step-father); William David Osborn (father); James Steven Osborn (brother); Laura Lozott (sister); nieces, Jessica Lozott and Kirstie Thompson; nephews, Zach Osborn and Jake Lozott; step-grandson, Owen Michael Nichols; step-great-niece, Asha; and step-grand-nephews, Jaxon and Christian.
