March 30, 1998 - March 23, 2020 (age 21)
Louisville, GA – [Oliver Sasser], 21, loving [child] of [redacted], entered into [their] eternal rest Monday evening, March 23, 2020 at [their] residence. Because of the current ordinances regarding COVID-19 and the family’s respect and concern for public health and safety, the family has chosen to hold private celebration of life services at 2:00 P.M. Sunday afternoon, May 31, 2020 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Chris Shoemaker officiating.
A lifelong resident of Louisville, [Oliver] was the Salutatorian of the 2016 Jefferson County High School graduating class. They loved theater and watching movies with [their] family. Having a photographic memory and an inquisitive mind, they loved to read and to learn. For [them], there was nothing like a good book and/or a good movie. [Oliver] was all about nature and was an Ecology/Biology major at Augusta University where [they were] scheduled to graduate this year. [Their] passion was animals—all types of animals, even snakes—and the protection of their environment. [They were] very organized, not only in thought but also in [their] physical world—everything had its place. [Oliver] has been described as being “quirky” and having a straight-forward, no-nonsense approach with people and life itself. This loving [child], devoted [sibling] and loyal friend had a great impact on [their] community and the people [they] met. [Their] memory will be treasured and honored, and [their] light will continue to shine in the hearts of those [they] has left behind.
Oliver was an Ecology and Biology major at Augusta University and would have graduated this year. On Thursday 16th April the Augusta University community held a reflection and remembrance of the students, faculty and staff who had passed away over the past year.
According to a friend, Oliver was fine with either he/him or they/them pronouns. Their Facebook profile - https://www.facebook.com/oliver.sasser.3950 - uses the latter so that is what is used in this report.
