Kerry “Ozzie” Todd Oswald, 55, of Green Cove Springs, Florida, passed away on February 14, 2019. He was born in Rock Port, Missouri, and moved to Jacksonville in 1982. He met the love of his life, Lisa, in 1995; they married on Valentine’s Day in 1996 and moved to Clay County, Florida. Kerry found his work family in 2006 for Rulon International and remained a dedicated and loved employee there until his death.
He loved his wife, his family, his dog Tebow, and cats Snookie, Snuggles, and Street. He also loved his Florida Gators, Missouri Tigers, Kansas City Chiefs and occasionally the Jacksonville Jaguars when they had a winning season! He also had a passionate love for animals and really was a true animal whisperer.

He is survived by his wife, Lisa, of 23 years and her dysfunctional family that he inherited the day they married: Brian (Ameila) Moore, Ashley Moore (Lee Bussen), Jesse (Veronica) Moore, Danielle Moore (Nathan Craun); and the grandchildren he adored, Logan, Julissa, Jaden, Jesse, Jack, and Madalyn. Other survivors include his brothers, Roger Oswald, Ron Oswald, and Kim Smith; and father, Richard Smith.
