Gordon Ousley, a resident of Pierceton, passed away quietly in the early hours of Monday, January 24, 2022. He was 76 years old at the time of his passing.
Born in Martin, Kentucky on February 26, 1945, Gordon was the son of Andrew J. and Julia (Gibson) Ousley. He spent his formative years in Kentucky and was a graduate of Prestonsburg High School. He also attended Alice Lloyd College in nearby Pippa Pass before moving to the Warsaw area in his early twenties.
He was previously married to Loretta Hunter. Though they divorced later, they shared four children and seven grandchildren and had always cared about each other. In addition to Loretta who preceded him in 2020, Gordon is preceded by two great-grandchildren: Kyler Gordon Miller and Braelynn Ousley and two siblings: Willis Ousley and Anna Bojean Ousley.
Professionally, Gordon spent many years with Whitley Products, transferring to DANA where he retired as an inspector several years later. More personally, he was a fun-loving, kind person with a good sense of humor. He could be serious when needed but was generally mild-mannered and big-hearted. He enjoyed game shows like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and genuinely loved time spent with family.
Survivors include four children: Mary Ann Ponce of Muscatine, Iowa, Gary Ousley of Pierceton, Chad Ousley of Pierceton, and Michelle Ousley of Warsaw; eight grandchildren; sixteen great-grandchildren and a sister, Betty Litsey of Pierceton.
