October 22, 1983 — May 1, 2023

Charleston, SC


Daniel Gregory Osterman, 39 of Charleston, South Carolina, passed away on Monday,

May 1, 2023, of heart failure.

Born on October 22, 1983, in Cincinnati, OH, he was a devoted Husband, Son, Brother,

and Uncle. Danny was the husband of Samantha Osterman (Delabar), youngest Son of

Carole Osterman (Willhide) and Greg Osterman, Son-in-Law of Christine Delabar, and

Geoff Delabar, Brother of Jason Osterman, Brother-in-Law of Rosalyn Osterman and

Uncle of Connor and Nico Osterman.

Growing up in Cincinnati, he attended Moeller and Loveland High Schools and

graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2004. He was athletic, and was great at

basketball and golf. He was a loyal and long-suffering Cincinnati Bengals fan.

Though he was always proud of being from Cincinnati, Danny moved to Charleston in

2008 to set up his life how he wanted to live it, in the south, near the ocean. He loved

spending time at the beach, taking his boat out and exploring the Charleston waterways

and camping with friends. He loved fishing and was a great golfer. He played frequently

and was well-known for driving over 350 yards.

He worked mostly in construction and contracting, and for a long time designed and

installed custom pools for many properties in the Charleston area. He had recently

started working with his best friend at an HVAC and plumbing contracting company and

together they were building a thriving business together.

Surrounded by friends and family, Danny married the love of his life, Sam in October


Danny was a hard worker and prided himself on his work ethic. But above all else,

Danny always put his family and friends first. He was a very caring and helpful person.

who always made time for family. He loved spending time with his mother and father as

well as his close friends. He also loved playing the crazy uncle part with his nephews

and they loved playing with him.

Danny was a real force of nature, and the world was a better place because he was in it.

We will never forget him. But Danny would want us to go on, live our lives and make him

proud. And so, we will.

The family will have a small, closed Celebration of Life on May 20th with close friends

and family.
