Billy (Bill) D. Oglesby was born in Tallahassee, Florida on May 23, 1945, to the Late John and Mandy Oglesby. He and his twin sister were the last of the grandchildren of the Late Dan Davis and Emma Barber Davis.

Bill was educated in the Leon County School System in Tallahassee, Florida, graduating from Florida A&M University Development Research School. He attended Florida A&M University and graduated from Lively Technical College Police Academy in Tallahassee, Florida where he was in the upper fourth of his class. He worked as a Sargent at the Florida A&M University Police Department before entering the Airline Catering Services Industry and relocating to various cities around the country. He retired in Miami Gardens, Florida in 2002 as a Supervisor with Boston Scientific.

Bill never met a stranger. He was truly a family man and was always attentive to the concerns of not only his immediate family, but his extended family as well. He was always willing to take on any task that was asked of him and he positively influenced the lives of many.

Bill, along with Mattie, his wife of 52 years, symbolized their dedication to Jehovah God by Water Baptism in the Year 2000. While in service for Jehovah God, Bill always had a smile and words of encouragement for the many people he met. He would go to great lengths to serve others. It was a pleasure to be around him. Bill attended the Kingdom Hall with the Honey Hill Congregation and served until death.

Bill was preceded in death by his wife Mattie. He is survived by his children Eric (Heather), Alana (Darien), Jada, John (Tysheca), Christopher (Gretel); Sisters Idell (Deceased) Doris Spraggins (Roland Deceased) and Jerri (Deceased), Brother John (Gladys) (Deceased); Brothers and Sisters-in-Love Claudia, Freddie, James, Autry (Deceased), Dana, Kannee (Robert); Grand Children Jasmine, Miranda, Dylan, and Alesha; Great-Grand Daughter Aria. He was a wonderful uncle, cousin and god brother whom he loved dearly. He will surely be missed.
