I had the great pleasure of knowing Oscar since 3rd grade. Always a happy soul, walking tall throughRead More the playground at Delevan drive Elementary. Even back then he was quite the athlete. My fondest memories I have of him and I in elementary are one of our class photos (6th grade I think) we were the tallest kids in class. Oscar was taller than our teacher and we always laughed talking about that. I would occaionally run into him in the neighborhood when we both left for middle school, then later watched as we competed against each others schools in various sports like baseball and football. There was absolutely no doubt growing up that Big "O" would end up moving on as a college athlete. Always sharp and respectful he made us all proud to see him represent our barrios. Not too many can say they archived the honors Big "O" did. From the small communities of Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Glassel Park, Lincoln hts and even Boyle hts... We are all saddened by his loss. My deepest condolences and prayers I send from North Califas. We will not say good bye only see you later brother. God bless the Cabrera family and extended family of Big "O" .

Oscar was in my 7th grade math class at Irving Middle School. He was a solid leader and in the 8thRead More grade he became a member of Leadership Class. He was captain of the stage crew. When assignments were made, the only answer was "yes sir". I knew the job was always done correctly and on time with a smile when Oscar was in charge. Irving won the two city wide championships in baseball and one in basketball with Oscar taking the lead as captain. We talked much about college because it was obvious the Division 1 schools would come calling. I remember the sad conversation we had when USC won the national championship in baseball - He kept saying "that's the team I should have been on. All the time I knew him, Oscar was man enough to know the right thing to do and more importantly, man enough to admit when he made mistakes. The prayers, and thought of my family and the Irving family goes to his family and friends. Take care, Dr. Sell
