Oakley Allan Grueser, 2

Oaklee Allan Grueser, 2, gained his angel wings and flew to Jesus on Thursday, May 27, 2021. Oaklee was born on September 13, 2018 to Suzanne Grueser and Cory Freeman.

He was the younger brother of Charlie and Atticus, his very best friend.  He loved his baby sister, Poppy Raine. His favorite people were his grandparents, Jon and Angie Grueser of Reedsville, Ohio. 

He loved to be snuggled by his Mom Mom Angie and he enjoyed watching his Papaw Jon while he cooked, waiting to get the first bite of something good to eat. In addition to his previously mentioned family, Oaklee is survived by his maternal family; great-grandmother, Jackie Vanover of Pomeroy, and great-grandfather Ray (Jackie) Ginther of Portland, his aunt Stacy (Derek) Michael of The Plains, uncles Jon J. (Laura) Grueser of Chester, Luke (Renee) Grueser of Reedsville, and special “aunts”, Sidney Grueser of Reedsville, and Kaylee (Eric) Vanfossen, of Pomeroy. Also surviving is his paternal aunt Miranda Lamb of Marietta, as well as many other extended relatives, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who miss and love him dearly.

He was welcomed to Heaven by his Maternal great-grandparents Charlie and Ruby Grueser and maternal great-great grandmother Ruth Thomas, maternal great-grandfather Carl Vanover, as well as Judy Hawley, paternal grandmother.

Oaklee was full of life and laughter. His laughter was contagious and sounded like music to our ears.  He loved to ride in the big dump truck with his Uncle Jon Jon. He was full of energy and so you could always hear the sound of his little feet running about. He and Atticus were best brothers and playmates.  They were inseparable and were so imaginative while at play. In other words, you never knew what they were going to get into next. Oaklee will live on through the most thoughtful gift of all. As we mourn our loss, other children will be given the gift of life through organ donation. He has become a Hero to many, by opening the door to life with his key of sacrifice.
