Harold “Buz” Ogden, 81, passed away peacefully on June 2, 2024.

He was born on August 23, 1942, in Waco, Texas to Glen and Edith Ogden. Buz’s life was

defined by sharing the love and message of Jesus Christ to his family and anyone he met. He

spent many hours studying the Bible and was a faithful servant who taught Sunday School for

over 30 years.

Buz was a devoted son, adoring husband, loving father, and an outstanding Poppy. He touched

many lives on his earthly journey and he will be missed tremendously.

A gathering will be held for friends and family to share memories and to celebrate the life of Buz

on Sunday, June 9, 2024, from 1pm to 3pm at C. T.  Baker Funeral Home in West Columbia, Texas.

Jesus said unto him, “Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy

soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is

like unto it, thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang

all the law and the prophets.”

Matthew 22:37-39
