William Marvin (Bill) Osteen passed away peacefully in the presence of family on June 2, 2017. He was born on November 23, 1933, in Trenton Florida, and graduated from Waldo High School. After serving in the US Marine Corp, he returned to Florida and attended Jones Business College. A career in consumer lending ensued, culminating in his retirement from Barnett Bank (now Bank of America) after twenty years’ service.

He was an active member of Church on the Drive (formerly College Park Baptist Church). He participated in two mission trips, one each to Kenya and Ethiopia. During his lifetime, he enjoyed sports, woodworking, nature, travelling, photography, and spending time with family and friends.

He is survived by his wife of almost forty-five years, Margaret Green Osteen, as well as three daughters: Viggo Casey (Larry) of Odessa, Mary Kay Davies (Albert) of Cocoa, and Amy Hulen (Dan) of Stuart, along with nine grandchildren: Brian Casey (Francesca) of St. Petersburg, Jeff Casey of Odessa, Tyler Osteen of Longwood, Travis Osteen of Atlanta, and Grace, Noah, Annaliese, Coraline, and Marabelle Hulen, all of Stuart, along with one greatgrandchild, Ava Casey of St. Petersburg. Bill is also survived by two brothers: SJ Osteen (Tiny) of Starke and Franklin Osteen (Linda) of Alachua.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 9, at 11:00 a.m. at Church on the Drive, 1914 Edgewater Drive, Orlando FL 32804, followed by a reception at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bill’s memory to Church on the Drive or to Water Is Life, International Inc, 916 Valencia Ave., Orlando FL.
