I was very saddened hearing of the sudden loss of my friend “Freddie O”. We all grew up together in the great little town of McMechen, and have some very special memories of him. I always tried to catch up with him at the “Firemans” Club when I was in town. I’m sure going to miss him. I know he has left a big void in everyones life. May God bless and be with the entire Oser family and all of our friends in this tragic loss of a great dude. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

So sorry to hear about Fred. I have many fond memories of playing baseball against him as a youth, and even though our paths didn’t cross much as adults, he never failed to speak and always was friendly. My thoughts are with all his family and friends at this time.

To the entire Oser Family,

Sorry about your loss of a loved one. Freddy-O was a good man and always was friendly with me. He always seemed concerned about how I was doing and wanted to know how my football team was doing or if my Dad had made any wine this year. He was a lot of fun and I will miss him. You all are in my prayers. God Bless!
