On Sunday, November 15,2020 at 4:28am Terrance Lavon Osborne aka Slim. Loving son, amazing brother, father of 2 and loyal friend passed away at the age of 44.
Terrance was born September 17, 1976 in Kansas City, Mo to Terry and Olivia (Toney) Osborne, Terrance last attended Westport Senior High. Were he was a star basketball player, and a member of the swim team. Even though he had multiply full scholarships for basketball, swimming and art. That was not the path he chose. He was a graduate of the School of Hard knocks, but later received his GED and certification in carpentry. But between you and me I wouldn’t trust him with a hammer. If you’ve ever been to my Grandmother Toney’s house during his school years, you’ve seen the multitude of trophies & ribbons.
Terrance enjoyed meeting new people from all walks of life. If you had the pleasure of meeting him you would have a friend forever. He was known for his laughter, infectious smile, kind spirit. And let’s be honest he was the life or death of a party depending on where his feelings and the glass met. He was the kind of person that always had your back, even if you didn’t ask. He was a simple yet complicated person. Constantly on the move, never calling one place or another home. Because for him wherever he was, was home even if just for the day. For those of you who knew him, you knew he had a heart of gold and he probably offended or made you mad a time or two. We the family would like to apologize (lol). We come from a tell it like it is, no holding back, raw unfiltered, but apologize later kind of bloodline. He even though he only wanted people to know the Slim side of him, on a rare occasion if he let you get close enough you got to see and get to know the Terrance side. You got to see the softer gentler protector side of him. Terrance he never met a law\rule he couldn’t break, a line he wouldn’t cross, a story he couldn’t stretch and bottle he couldn’t kill and a women he couldn’t have. Despite his sometimes unruly exterior, smart remarks, foul mouth stubbornness. There is actual evidence that he was a loving and caring person. That evidence is the deep sorrow and pain in our hearts that his family and friends feel from his passing. Terrance lived his on his own terms, passed peaceful with his sister Shaun’Tae and grandmother Kem by his side. Terrance was ready to meet his maker we’re just not sure if his maker is ready for him. There are many people who are lost, and confused with the passing of Terrance so many words unspoken, so many unanswered questions. If he loved you, you never have to question it. Sometimes he couldn’t or just simply wouldn’t find the words. I promise you, if you were someone who meant the heart space. All you had to do was look at him, if you think it, ink it. (LOL) He carried those he loved with him every day. He was a man of few words when it came to the feelings type stuff as he would call it. But I’m sure he told you in his own way.
Terrance will be having a reunion with his grandmother Selina Toney, grandfathers James Osborne and Bert Williams, brother Kevin Franklin, Friends Corey Boston Michael McMurry and a full room of love ones, friends who have been preparing a spot at the table for him. He is survived by his parents Terry, (Katina) and Olivia Osborne. His siblings Shaun’Tae Osborne- Franklin, Shenae Williams, Mykel, (Autumn) Osborne, Tia and Terri Lynn Osborne, Tierra Osborne, Elizabeth Giles and honorary brothers Marcus Turner and Darryl Morris. His children Whitley & Darian Prevost. His grand children Zoe, Zeke Conway. nieces and nephews, Alexander & A’Lexus Lucas, Remy Osborne, Ava’Lea Robbins. Honorary mention, Raymond Breaux, Monique Lowe a whole gang of family members and friends. We only have so much space and you know who you are and that you were loved.
A celebration of Life will be held at Saturday November 28, 2020 at 807 West Wilshire Oklahoma City, Ok 73114 at 11 o’clock am.
One last thing I ask (Shaun’Tae) you to do in memory of Terrance. Keep your heart open, with a smile on your face and a drink in your hand. Because like he always said “Hey it’s just life why be sad when you can laugh and have a drink.” And if you really know him well, like always just when you think he’s gone you will see him again.
