Oscar Andreas Fredric Johnsen, (Ozzie), our beloved Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Uncle, brother, and friend, passed away peacefully and utterly content, at home on Monday, February 27, 2012 at the age of 83 years.
Ozzie is lovingly survived by his 3 children: Bill (Patti), Johnsen, John Johnsen, and Brenda Johnsen; 4 grandchildren: Tammy (Billy) Jones, Tracy Kerslake, Jessie (Bill) Carr, and Shane Johnsen; 3 great grandchildren: Cody and Blake Kerslake, and Kyla Jones; his brother Sam (Delia) Johnsen, and many special nieces and nephews.
Special friends Rob and Lisa Jackhart and their family, and very long and close friend John Summerfeld, must also be acknowledged.
A man of great knowledge and intellect, Ozzie passionately observed, researched and challenged the social, political and scientific theories of the world. He enjoyed any opportunity for debate, sharing his opinions, ideas and solutions with family and friends. Oscar’s children were very proud of their father; he was deeply loved, respected and admired.
A celebration of Ozzie’s life will be held in spring, early summer, and will be announced at a later date.
“If you know Ozzie, you know his love of argument, his love for his friends and relatives. His passion for science, philosophy, opinions, ideas and arguments was obvious and prolific. He believed an argument was a noble effort between two or more people seeking the truth.
