Mr. Oglesby was born May 11, 1934, in Meadville, Mississippi to Frank and Myrtis Oglesby. He was raised in Franklin County, graduating high school as a multi-sport athlete, excelling in both baseball and football. After high school, he served in the U.S. Army, spending time in Germany with the occupation forces during the 1950s. Following his service, he attended the University of Southern Mississippi where he earned a bachelor’s degree and met his wife, Patricia Oglesby.

Following retirement, Mr. Oglesby spent his time traveling the country, driving their motorhome to every continental state of the US (with the exception of Rhode Island) and, outside of his home state of Mississippi, Alaska was his absolute favorite. Mr. Oglesby also had a great love for hunting and fishing, passions which he enjoyed with his family every chance he could get.
