Oliver Jasper “Buck” Ozment Jr.
Oliver Jasper “Buck” Ozment, Jr. died peacefully at home on
July 16, 2014 in Huntsville with his loving wife and high school
sweetheart, Susan Whaley Ozment, holding his hand.
Buck was born on June 4, 1947 and grew up in Sumterville a
few hundred feet from the one-room schoolhouse his father
had attended.
He attended the University of Alabama on an ROTC
scholarship, where he was honored as a Distinguished Military
Graduate. He was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity,
Mallett Hall Scholarship Honor Dorm, SGA House of
Representatives, Residence Hall Council, and Corolla Staff.
After graduation, Buck was commissioned as an officer in the
United States Army. Susan and Buck married in 1970 and
moved to Germany for his first assignment. For three years,
they had many great adventures touring the continent,
developing a passion for travel that would last throughout their
Returning to the States, he earned an MBA at the University of
Alabama and after graduation moved to California. Buck left the
military with the rank of Major, and he accepted a defense
contracting position as a systems analyst in Monterey. They
stayed in the area for 12 years and made many lifelong friends.
In 1988, the Ozments moved back to Alabama to be closer to
family. Buck continued his career in defense with ORI and later
with CSC. In 2011, Buck retired from Dynetics, a company he
loved and which supported him throughout his illness. He was
proud of its success and his contribution to it.
He was an advocate for Huntsville and a true visionary in
regard to how the city could grow. He served in Leadership
Huntsville/Madison County, the Committee of 100, the
Huntsville Aerospace Marketing Association, the Huntsville

National Defense Industrial Association. He remained engaged
with the city and the business community right up until the end.
As a dedicated member of Trinity United Methodist Church, he
belonged to the Wednesday morning Men’s Prayer Breakfast
and the Aldersgate Sunday School Class.
Buck was an intelligent, methodical, and hardworking man of
integrity. He took care to teach that integrity to his children, and
this was the attribute he most admired in others. He was a
loving father who took pride in the accomplishments of his
children and happily attended any event in which they were
He was a fun man, and behind his serious demeanor was an
offbeat sense of humor. He was also great in an emergency.
When things went wrong, he was at his best: calm, steadying,
empathetic, and ready to tackle the problem.
Buck is survived by his wife and the love of his life for 46 years,
Susan; his daughter, Caroline Pinson Abadie (Matt) of Durham,
N. C; his son, James Andrew “Andy” Ozment (Ragnhild) of
