He talked about God to everyone he could. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, fishing, and working in his garden, especially his corn.

Owen married the love of his life, Betty Horsley Sensabaugh, on November 6, 1965. They were blessed with 48 years together until God called her home on July 11, 2014.
