Strickland O'Sheaquen Holmes Strickland was born on July 14, 1995 in Columbus, Ohio to Ms. Fatima Green and Mr. Nicholas Holmes. On April 3, 2014, our Heavenly Father found it necessary to call our beloved O'Shea to glory, releasing him from mortality unto immorality. O'Shea attended Columbus Public Schools and graduated from Alum Crest High School with the Class of 2013. He loved sports, particularly football and basketball and often spoke of becoming a professional basketball player, or perhaps a statistician. O'Shea had a superior knowledge of computers and was able to navigate his way through many computer programs with ease. He was an average chess player and was most impressive playing the number game called Sudoku. O'Shea leaves to cherish his loving memory, his mother and father (adoptive), Charlene and Homer Strickland; Ms. Fatima Green (mother); Mr. Nicholas Holmes (father); brothers, Quran (Green) Strickland, Jujuan (Green) Strickland, Jaquon Suber, Damon Thompson, Christopher (Shanette) Strickland, Eric (LaTonya) Strickland and Roderick (Marge) Russell; sisters, Rije Mitchell, Nicole Holmes and Damonneisha Thompson; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John (Muhammad) and Sharon Green, Ms. Inez Sinfield; aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of relatives and friends.
