A Tribute to a Dear Friend - Ozzie Barnhill

Roy James "Ozzie" Barnhill, Jr.
November 11, 1942 ~ December 14, 2015 (age 73)
Roy James "Ozzie" Barnhill passed away peacefully at home on Monday, December 14, 2015 from brain cancer at the age of 73. He was the oldest of four children born to Roy James Barnhill and Irene Rae Hathenbrook.

Ozzie worked for Davis School District Transportation for 30 years driving a bus for the special needs children which he dearly loved and for which he had a special place in his heart. He married Jeannie Selleneit in the Salt Lake Temple in 1979.

Ozzie is survived by his  wife, three siblings, Warren “Buzz” (Kaye), Suzzie (Brent) Parry, Dezi (Victor) Bofill.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 21st at 11:00 a.m. at the Orchard Fourth Ward, 55 East 350 North, North Salt Lake.

Heartfelt gratitude for the loving care and service given by Community Nursing Services, many members of the Orchard Fourth Ward, many friends and family. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the LDS Church Perpetual Education Fund.

We remember the many years that we were neighbors to Ozzie and Jeannie, who showed our kids how to be kind to ducks, taught our daughter how to work, and hid many a Christmas present in their home.  These two were extremely kind, loving and fun loving.  Our heart is heavy to hear of his passing, but we are assured of his eternal life.  Our prayers and sympathy are with Jeannie.  We love you Jeannie and Ozzie.
