Henry Morris Osborne

Marion, Va.

Henry Morris Osborne, age 78, passed away Thursday, January 9, 2020 at his home.

Henry didn't say a whole lot, but that doesn't mean he was quiet. He never met a stranger – in fact, his grandchildren thought he was famous. He was always smiling or waving when he took Buddy out. Henry was the most wonderful husband and poppy to his grandchildren and their friends. He was the best tomato man around, and was very proud of his garden. When he and Jimmy weren't laying carpet, Henry was working at the State Hospital, where his patients loved and protected him dearly. It's hard to find many more Henry Morris Osborne's – we're pretty sure he was one of a kind, and his kind and gentle way will be missed.

He was preceded in death by his son, Mark Avery Tilson; and parents, John and Jessie Ruth Osborne.

Henry is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Freida Osborne of Marion, Va.; sister, Christine Marie Price of Nashville, Tenn.; brother-in-law, Robert Clay Taylor of Bristol, Va.; grandchildren, Candice "Candy Lou" Davis and husband, Bobby of Marion, Va. and Shelby Tilson and special friend, Justin Johnson of Chilhowie, Va.; great-grandchildren, Colby, Lila, Sawyer, and Coleson Henry; several nieces and nephews; special niece, Dana Taylor Brooks of Nashville, Tenn.; and special friend, Jimmy Farmer of Sugar Grove, Va.

Funeral services will be held Sunday, January 12, 2020 at 8 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Reverend Doug Halsey officiating. Graveside services will be held Monday, January 13, 2020 at 11 a.m. at Rose Lawn Cemetery. The family will receive friends Sunday from 6 p.m. until the time of service at Seaver-Brown Chapel.

Anyone who knew Henry knew what a wonderful and kind man he always was. He was the best father in law anyone could be blessed to have. He was a man any mother would thank God for blessing her child with such a person as a grandfather as I did many times. Henry was so much more than an in law he was a friend, a woderful ear when you needed it, a father figure to me for many years always there for anything he could do if only a hug or a talk or his amazing kind smile and beautiful kind eyes. He will be missed beyond words.......
