Sign the Guestbook

Sathya S. Osterhaus, 39, passed away peacefully Friday, February 8, 2013, with his mother at his side. He was born October 5, 1973, in Santa Barbara, Calif., but spent his life in the town he loved, Ashland, Ore.


Sathya never let his lifelong battle with kidney failure define him. His adventurous spirit and incredible tenacity were constant reminders to his many close friends of how to make the most of life. He fought for every day he had, and wrung every ounce out of his time. Sathya was fiercely loyal to his friends and family and brought out the best in both. His legacy is one of fortitude, endurance, smiling even in the worst of times, and bringing joy to all whom had the honor of knowing him.


Sathya was an amazing son, brother, and friend; he is loved and will be missed beyond words.

He is survived by his mother, Pati Griffin; brothers, JJ and Eron Osterhaus; and sister, Ananda Osterhaus. He was preceded in death by his father, Martin Osterhaus.
