Robert Ousley III

March 31, 1953 ~ October 19, 2021 (age 68)


Celebration of Life

Robert Ousley III was born to the late Robert Ousley, Jr and Dorothy Bertha Lou Ousley on March 31, 1953. He was an identical twin to Roger F. Ousley, Sr. who preceded him in death on Aug. 20, 2021.

Robert departed this earthly life on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at 1:30 PM. He received Christ at an early age and later, by his own account, “heard a verbal call to the ministry” and vowed to dedicate the rest of his life to the teachings of Christ as an ordained minister and hospital care trauma chaplain.

Robert was a member of Mt. Sinai Seventh-day Adventist Church at the time of his death. He was an active member of various positions in the church and worked as a trauma chaplain at Orlando Health until his health prevented him from participating and caused his early retirement.

Robert served his Country as a U.S. Marine and was a very proud veteran. He received his high school diploma from Jones High. He attended Oakwood College and received his Bachelor of Art Degree in Theology. Robert later went on to attend Memphis Theological Seminary and received his Master of Divinity. He was a Board-Certified Chaplain and was working on his D. Min from Regent School of Divinity but became too ill to continue his studies. Having completed all but his thesis paper, this would be his one regret.

Some of Robert’s greatest accomplishments, by his own statements, were being granted ecclesiastical endorsement by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventist as a Healthcare Chaplain (ACM) and becoming a Board-Certified Chaplain through the Association of Professional Chaplain which allowed him to minister to the many healthcare workers he encountered in the various trauma centers and hospital healthcare workers in general. He would affectionally refer to them as his “healthcare flock.” Robert was blessed that the feeling was mutual, and many would travel his journey of his heart transplant from the beginning to the end. His last hours were spent with many of his trauma room co-workers and friends who rushed to his side. He was “Chap” to many of them and they loved him dearly.

Chaplain Ousley leaves his wife, Diana Ousley; one daughter ~ Roneshia Blunt and her children; Brothers ~ Victor (Gloria) Cannon, Willie C. (Wonda) Tillman; Sister-in-law ~ Barbara Ousley; He had the joy of being a part of a blended family with a stepson and daughter. Robert would be given the opportunity to taken on the role of “Papa” to four grandchildren which would become one of his highlights. He also leaves behind nieces, nephews, cousins, and countless family and friends who will miss him dearly. May he rest in peace until Resurrection Morning. Robert Ousley, III was born to the late Robert Ousley, Jr and late Dorothy Bertha Lou Ousley on March 31, 1953. He was an identical twin to Roger F.
