star ClRtam l as was the fourth son of
Renardis Isaac and Chrystalla Sprauve-Isaac.
He was bor on St. Thomas on January 16. 1922.
As a young man. Oster joined the C.C.C. Camp
the Cubarl Conservation Camp. an organization
to provide young men with practical skills. It was
Instituted by President Roosevelt in the 1940's.
After completion of the C.C.C. Program, he
worked for the Department of Public Works as a
Jackhammer operator. He then left the island due
to illness and didn't return to St. Thomas until
December of 1978.
When Oster Joined our household t was a great
Joy to all of us. especially myself and my two sis-
ters. because we had no other uncle.
Special thanks and appreciation go to my
cousin. Katherine Swan. who located uncle in
Washington. D.C. and was Instrumental In bring-
ing him home.
In 1985. uncle Joined an organization called
"Strive".
Strive became his second family. There he
made new friends and renewed acquaintances.
Uncle received several certificates of appreciation
from this organizaon.
Uncle had a great love for children, especially
his many nieces and nephews. On any given day
you would find him sitting by the Department of
aor o across from the Sts. Peter and Paul School
watching the children go by.
Today our sadness is for ourselves because we
will miss him. However. we are all better and hap-
pier for having known him. We are glad to know
that he is out of the reach of all pain and suffer-
Rest n peace une.
Rest In peace. uncle.

Tributes


Dear Uncle.
Ever since I found out that you were my uncle. I
knew I had a goal to achieve, and that was to let you
know who I was. Every day I saw you and It was a
"good morning or a "good afternoon Uncle. I am your
great-nece*.
I did that every day. and one day I said. "good
morning Uncle. do you know who I am?" and you said.
"Yes. Lionel's granddaughter.
That was when I knew that I had achieved my
goal.
Now uncle, your goal Is achieved. You're resting
In peace. You are gone but will never be forgotten.
Loee, Amnette & the lds
