Major Oscar M. Bushwar, USAF, RET., died peacefully on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. He was born in Bowser, Texas to William Leslie and Bessie (Cooper) Bushwar on Thursday, October 30, 1924. Oscar lived a long proud and accomplished life, leaving an amazing legacy and inspiration behind. Oscar joined the United States Air Force, where he proudly served his country from 1942 until his retirement in 1976, after 33 years of service. During his time of service as a pilot, he served during WWII, Korea, the Cuban Crisis and Vietnam. He received a Bachelors degree from SMU, and although retired, Oscar was not the type of man to sit idly and do nothing.

When we would visit, or have them on the phone, Oscar would call Beth "Sugar or Baby or Honey". Just melts my heart.
95 years young and married for 70 years, and they were still so sweet together. So Precious, and endless Love.

Dear family of Major Oscar Bushwar. I am so sorry for your loss. To lose a loved one in death is hard. During this difficult time, l hope your family can find comfort in God’s word the Bible that says “soon we will see our loved ones again.” (John 5:28,29 and
Acts 24:15)

What sad, sad news I just received. I loved Oscar's captivating smile, gentle ways and amazing sense of humor; I consider myself very blessed to know him and Beth. He will be greatly missed; however, I know those who went before him met him at the gate with open arms and probably a Mustang escort, including my dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Beth.
