Obe was a true friend to our family, all of our life. I can remember Mom telling us how Obe brought she and my brother(when he was just a baby) food when my Dad was in the service. I remember Obe being a good friend to my Grandfather and Grandmother as well as my Mom & Dad....and it continued to my brother and me. Mom and Dad are in their 90's and Obe still called about every two weeks to see how they were doing. Obe and my Dad worked for many years, side by side, making the Finleyville Cemetary as beautiful as it could be for families and their loved ones. Larry & Obe have continued that legacy till the present. Everyone was better for having known Obe. He will be missed but he will be a great care-taker for God in his new heavenly home.
Much love to the family from Barbara McCombs Clutter
