    I had the privilege to work with Obie at Atlas Steel. We had some good times and lots of laughs. The family will be in my prayers and God will get a man who always has a smile and can get you to laugh which we all need to get through each and everyday. Well done Obie and we’ll reunite one day.

    Sorry for your loss. Had the privilege of meeting Mr. Obie through Jamie Timberlake. We got our beautiful baby beagle Hershey from him 11 years ago. Prayers for your family.
