George "Buddy" Oglesby

March 10, 1946 ~ May 27, 2019 (age 73)

Mr. George "Buddy" Oglesby, 73, of Kingsland, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family Monday, May 27, 2019 at Hospice of the Golden Isle in Brunswick.

Born in Patterson, GA on March 10, 1946, Mr. Oglesby lived in Patterson until moving to St. Marys in 1967. He married the love of his life, JoAnn, in 1966 and they were blessed with 53 years of marriage before death parted them. Mr. Oglesby was employed by Gilman Paper Company where he gave 36 years of faithful service. He also served his country and state by enlisting in the Georgia National Guard for 6 years. Mr. Oglesby was the beloved patriarch of his family and considered a source of sound advice, guidance and stability for those around him. He enjoyed the simple things of life such as drinking a good cup of coffee, eating a home cooked meal or strawberry ice cream and a Mickey D's Apple Pie. Mr. Oglesby liked watching TV westerns and NASCAR races, so he could pull for Fords and his favorite driver, Mark Martin, to win. He enjoyed riding around in his truck, driving his tractor and working with tools while listening to Alan Jackson. Of all the joys he experienced in life, Mr. Oglesby's greatest pleasure, and true love, was his family who will dearly miss his loving presence and guidance. He was a faithful member of First Baptist Church Kingsland where he served his Lord and community.
