Clifford Scott Ogle was born on March 18, 1967 at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. He was called to his Heavenly home November 19, 2018. He was a generous, caring man who loved his family, his friends, his job, and Scouting.
As a child, he moved several times due to being a military brat. His father was a SgtMaj in the Marine Corps. The last move took the family to Belton, MO where Cliff graduated from Belton High School. Cliff was a graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia in 1989. He moved to Las Vegas after graduation where he met his future wife, Kristi while she was attending the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. They fell in love and were married May 16, 1992. Three years later their daughter Marissa Nichole was born on Tax Day, April 15, 1995.
Cliff worked for a computer, construction and surveying equipment store in Las Vegas for many years. In February of 2000, he received an offer to move to Kansas to work for one of the manufacturing companies for which he sold equipment. He accepted the job and moved in April 2000. Kristi was eight months pregnant with their son Matthew Christopher, who was later born on May 12, 2000. Kristi and the kids moved to Olathe, KS to join Cliff on July 31, 2000.
For the past six years, Cliff worked for Fike Corporation, where he hoped to work for many years to come. He loved his job, work family, and training fellow employees and associates around the world. He recently enjoyed business trips to Belgium and Florida where he dipped his toes in the Atlantic Ocean.
Cliff was Cub Scout of the Year in 1977 in Pack 38 in Japan. He came back to Scouting when Matthew became a Tiger Cub in 2006. Cliff has been very active in scouting for the last 12 years, being awarded with honors including the District Award of Merit and Order of the Arrow Vigil Honor. He was an Honorary Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say, and was Wood Badge trained. He was also Counselor for the God and Country program and an Assistant Scout Master for first-year Scouts. His volunteerism in Scouting is too vast to detail. We love you Growling Morning Bear, Teach of Many!
Cliff was the backbone of his family. He was extremely proud of his children Marissa and Matthew. Marissa is a Certified Nursing Assistant and Med Tech going to school for her nursing degree. Matthew, an Eagle Scout, recently joined the Navy and is stationed in San Antonio, TX. Both children are working toward a life of service caring for others.
Although Cliff left us suddenly and unexpectedly, the last week of his life was spent doing the things he loved. He worked in the best job he ever had, he traveled to Florida for work and got to enjoy the beach and seafood, he spent quality time with his wife, and he cooked Thanksgiving dinner for over 60 people for his Boy Scout Troop 85 on a campout. Cliff lived life to the fullest. He had no regrets. It was too soon for the rest of us. We will miss him, but he is not gone.
He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Kristi Ogle, daughter Marissa Ogle of Kansas City, KS, Matthew Ogle of Fort Sam Houston, TX, his parents Gerald and Renate Ogle of Henderson, NV, brothers Bill Ogle and Jay Ogle, and sister Kim Ogle. He is preceded in death by his sister Roberta.
Services will be held November 24, 2018 at Advent Lutheran Church, 11800 151st Street, Olathe, KS 66062 at 2pm. A gathering will be held after the service.
