passed away Tuesday morning, at nearly ninety-one years old he joins his beloved wife Lois, and Lord in Heaven. Ot’s memory remains in his four loving children: Bob, Hank and his wife Gina, Deann, and Marty and his wife Sarah. As well as his beloved grandchildren: Traci, Cassidy, Kara, Jessica, Jordan, Harrison, and Mitchell. Ot’s outstanding talent defines his legacy in his assistance in the construction of Desert Foothills Lutheran Church, his creation of the beautiful cross and alter in the sanctuary of St. Mark Lutheran Church, and the number of homes he constructed in his hometown of Omaha. Grandpa Ot will be missed and loved every day, and we look forward to the day we meet him again in Heaven. In the meantime, we remember his words of wisdom, “it’s not how long you lived, it’s about how you lived.” A Visitation will be held Friday the 12th between 5:00 – 7:00pm at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 East Indian School Road, Phoenix. A Memorial Service will be held in Otis’ memory Saturday the 13th at 10:00am at St. Mark Lutheran Church, 3030 East Thunderbird Road, Phoenix.
