Orville Horatio Watson Jr.December 4, 1987 ~ March 28, 2017 (age 29)
Orville Horatio Watson Jr., commonly known as OJ, ascended to our heavenly father on March 28 th , 2017 at home, in Chandler, Arizona. Orville was born in Springfield, Massachusetts on December, 4 th 1987 to Cynthia Marie Watson and Orville Horatio Watson, Sr. Orville survives two beautiful children, Orville Lee Watson, three years of age and, O’shay Leeann Watson, two years of age. OJ was the third of eight children; William Darnell Fryar (35), Dominique Jerome Fryar (33), Justin Jermaine Watson (25), Mariah Monique Muckle (22), Artayzah Fetiece Caldwell (20), Aaron Antoine Caldwell (13) and, Malachi James Fryar (7). OJ was aspiring to become a musical artist. You would hardly ever catch him without a pair of headphones on or a musical device. It all started when he asked for a drum set for Christmas one year; he played them every night in the basement. He later brushed up his skillset in our childhood church. In his later years, OJ began to compile his own instrumentals and rhymes to accompany them, this was truly his dream and calling. His artist name is Ojeezy. That name was given to him by his younger siblings one year; and being the family oriented, humble hearted, loving brother he was, he let that name stick and sink in in the community. Orville was skilled in many other areas as well such as cooking or grilling gourmet meals, and art work. OJ worked very well with his hands, constructing crafts such as a dining room table for his mother and other smaller wood works. OJ was the type of person that could sense if something was wrong with one, and would attempt to fill the space with his great sense of humor and optimism. Orville was a tender hearted, yet a fearless protector. He would always look out for the best interest of his mother, children, siblings and, close loved ones, taking the bottom of the barrel for himself last. This taught the people surrounding him, especially the younger siblings, what it really took to have patients, forgiveness and, courage. Orville was the meaning of love. **PRAYER** Thank you to all of his extended family and friends that showed your grace and support to our family. A special thanks to CCV Peoria and All Options Funeral Home for all of their blessing bestowed upon us. We truly have a great amount of gratitude for everyone of you. I know that OJ is ecstatically shining down upon us with his love, blessings, and appreciation. Thank you.
1 Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wrench Like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
T’was blind but now I see
T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grave appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares
We already come.
T’was grace that brought us safe thus far
And grace will lead us home,
And grace will lead us home
