It is with great sadness that Mr. Michael McLean Ousley, age 66, of Goldsboro, NC passed away due to heart complications at UNC REX Hospital in Raleigh, NC on April 10, 2021. Michael is survived by his son Mr. Michael Ousley Jr.; fiancé, Ms. Candy Webb of Goldsboro, NC, and his two brothers Mr. Dion Ousley and Mr. Chris Ousley of Raleigh, NC.

Michael was born in Erwin, North Carolina on May 13, 1954. He graduated from Eastern Wayne High School in 1972. After graduation, he joined the US Army where he served his country in the infantry. After being discharged from the Army, he attended Wayne Community College to further his education and discovered a love for the literary arts. Throughout his career, Michael discovered the employment that gave him the greatest fulfillment was working as a health care technician at Cherry Hospital where he attended to those in need.
His passion for music was a lifelong journey. His interpretations were thought-provoking and he readily shared his thoughts with others.
As a spiritual man, he was full of love and compassion for others and enjoyed engaging in philosophical discussions and sharing his thoughts with family and friends. The positive energy he brought to others was infectious throughout his life.
Michael was a sports enthusiast and followed professional and college football and basketball. He loved to watch UNC play and was an ardent fan since childhood.
Michael lived in service to others and dedicated himself to being a friend to all. He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by everyone he knew.
A celebration of Michael Ousley’s life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a memorial donation to a charity of your choice in honor of Michael.
