Oakie Denzel Halbritter

September 14, 1943 — November 20, 2023

Westernport, MD

Oakie Denzel “Buddy” Halbritter passed away on November 20, 2023 at Ruby Memorial Hospital. 

Born September 14, 1943, he was the son of the late Charles and Martha (Laupert) Halbritter. He was also preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Eugene Rudolph “Rudy” Kasmier. 

Buddy attended the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in McCoole. He truly enjoyed being with people. Buddy was one of the first participants of the Friends Aware program. He attended every day for over 60 years until COVID changed his routine. He made many friends with other clients and staff. He enjoyed his jobs within the community and the wood working department. He gained much pleasure from his accomplishments. 

Buddy won many medals from the Special Olympics, and many trophies for bowling, which he truly enjoyed. Even at the age of 80, he went bowling every Monday. Buddy bowled a 151 and 156 at his last two games. 

As his family grew, Buddy whole heartedly welcomed his nieces and nephew. He was proud of each of their accomplishments and was very happy when they had children of their own.

Buddy was an extremely loving, caring and sincere individual. He will be greatly missed.

Buddy is survived by his oldest sister, Charlotte Kasmier and youngest sister and caregiver, Sharon Foreman. He is also survived by his nieces, Chargenia Kelly and husband Brian, Sharen Wagoner and husband Timothy, Christina Morales, and Clarissa Kitzmiller and husband Ryan; and his nephew, Craig Kasmier and wife Lisa. Buddy is survived by his great nieces, Adalia Morales, Brianna Kelly and Anissa Kitzmiller; great nephews, Jared Wagoner, Logan Kasmier, and Lukas Kitzmiller; a bonus niece, Daniela; and bonus nephews, Leo, Ricky and Carlos; and also special friends, Leo and wife Olivia, and John.
