Oscar Fournier September 20, 1926 - February 7, 2019

Oscar Antonio Fournier

September 20, 1926 – February 7,2019

Walked into the light Thursday, February 7, 2019.  Beloved husband of Georgia, dear father of Leslie Terranova, Jean (Mark) Jacobi, Carolyn (Jeffrey) Heintz, Mary (John) Clohisy; dear son of the late Miguel Antonio Fournier and Celia Fournier Larranaga; dear grandfather of Nicole (Charlie), Jennie (Ted), Katie, David, Anne (Jesse), Daniel (Kristi), Jessica (Amber), John Jr (Anne), Timothy (Jen), Matthew, Patrick; dear great grandfather of 10. Preceded in death by sons, Richard Allen and Michael Anthony, 1 great grandson, Pablo Valentine, one son-in-law, Frank, and one sister, Irma.

Oscar was born in Guatamala City, Guatamala, and raised in San Jose, Costa Rica.  He came to the United States on a Student Visa to study Engineering at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.  It was on a business trip to Grand Haven, MI, that he met Georgia, the love of his life. Georgia and Oscar were married and settled in Menomonee Falls, WI.  It was during this time that Oscar became a United States Citizen – one of the proudest moments of his life.

Oscar worked for Harnischfeger Corp, in Milwaukee, WI for 35 years engineering stacker cranes and mentoring many grateful young engineers.  Oscar was an inventor and received multiple patents for his inventions in yacht storage and handling.

Oscar was full of life and had many passions including his love for the Catholic faith, the beauty of mathematics and computer aided design, sailing and the sea, the enjoyment of food, the power and whimsy of language and developing trademark exclamations (“Beauuuutiful!” “Unbelieeeeeevable!” “Contact!” “the Hot Setup!”), dancing, music and song, painting, grilling and entertaining and celestial navigation.  But none of these passions could compare to the love and joy he shared with his loving wife Georgia during their 66 years of marriage, and the love and pride that he had for his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Services:  Visitation and Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, February 9 at Immacolata Catholic Church, 8900 Clayton Road, St. Louis, Missouri 63117.  Visitation at 10 :00 a.m. with the Mass to follow at 11:00 a.m.  Interment Resurrection Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, contributions to Immacolata Catholic Church appreciated.
