William L. Osborne

William "Bill" Osborne, 81, of Whitehouse Ohio passed away in his residence January 6, 2020. Bill was the son of Wilson and Pearl (Jenkins) Osborne. He was born March 13, 1938 in Pound, Virginia and was proud of his commitment serving in the U.S. Navy. Bill was considered an artist in his trade as a brick mason, recently receiving his 50-year pin from the Local 3 BAC.

Fish are breathing easier now that Bill has pulled his last hook out of the water, except for the ones packaged in the 2 chest freezers out back. He was often seen (or ‘busted') at many local fishing holes which can not be listed here due to strict instructions from Bill. He was an avid member of the NWOB (Northwest Ohio Bassmaster Club).

Bill was preceded in death by his wife Freda. Surviving are his daughters Pam (Mike) Naumann, Yvonne Hartman, Tricia (Keith) Osborne-Farris, son Billy "Boy" (Penny) Osborne, brother Roger Osborne, and sisters Earlene Zarrella, Vongia Osborne. Lovingly known as ‘Poppy' by many, including his grandchildren Jessica (Joseph), Joe, Megan, Melissa (Josh), Matt (Morgan), Nikki, Ashlee (T.J), Cody, and Cage. Also surviving are many great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and large-mouth bass.
