Remembering Lance "Fluffy" Oxyer

Some say people go out of this world in 3's, others say that's just superstition or coincidence. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but already three people I've personally known have now passed this year.

I joined Rot N. Rusty Production's in 2008 and Lance was the first person to speak to me and make me feel welcome. He was always outgoing, whether in driving his personalized hearse around town, going into business' like Home Depot and Wal-Mart in full costume, scaring the customers at the haunted house, or the little kids we walked past in the Dahlonega Goldrush parade. He was certainly an asset to the haunted house that can never be replaced. Every night we were open, if Lance (aka "Fluffy") wasn't outside working the queue, people would constantly ask "Where's Fluffy", "We want Fluffy". Everyone always wanted their photo's taken with this kind hearted giant. He loved being different, he loved the company of others and he would do anything you asked (within reason of course). He passed in his sleep August 2, 2011, he will forever be missed, but certainly not forgotten.

Rest In Peace Lance "Fluffy" Oxyer

See the love some of your friends have expressed already.....miss you buddy

Rusty Smith said: Lance, you have always treated me like a family. You have been one of the best friends anyone could ask for. My right hand! Your heart was bigger than you. Your passion for all things Halloween has kept Rot N.Rusty's going for many years. You have touched so many lives in such a positve way through screams, tears, and laughter. There will only be one "Fluffy" my dear friend. It has been an honor work and play with you. You will be missed by many. Now go and rest in peace my brother!!!

Phoenix Hansen said: fluffy you will be dearly missed by the entire legion. the haunted house will never be the same without you. R.I.P. my friend.

Dyana Postelle said: You will always be in our nightmares! ♥

Sharon Schmidt said: Jordan, Paul and I love you so SO much Fluffy, and we are so thankful that we got to see you one last time last week. Life won't be the same without you, and we'll always miss you.

Jordan Dover said: Many of us have been characters in the Haunted House over the years but Fluffy was the very soul of it. Surpassing only his love of the HH was the love and compassion he showed all of us without discrimination every time we saw his face. We tend to raise our opinions on those in passing but he truly was more than can be put into words and his kindness without parallel. His absence is a true loss for the many of us who knew him. I love you, as we all do.

Caren "Crazy Mom said: My dear little Fluffy, I remember coming to the HH 10 years ago as a visitor and watching you chase people down the street and jumping on their cars. What a rush! May you continue to chase and scare people. You will never be forgotten. Love you.

Amber Allen said: I can honestly say that I have never known anyone like Lance. He was truly one of a kind. An inspiration to not only all haunters across the world but to all human beings. His heart was pure and never ending in it's devotion to those he loved. No one will have the words to explain this magnificent man and no one ever will. He was Lance, a king of men and a shoulder and ear for those who needed one. I know my life has been changed since he entered my life and I am so thankful for what time I did know him. Lance, you will continue to be in the hearts of so many. You left a legacy and for that we thank you.

Danny Hart said: Rest In Peace Lance Oxyer aka: Fluffy! We will miss you Bro. I will change my profile pic to honor you. Fluffy, Thanks for being my friend....and not eating me when you had the chance. Love you Dude.

Kyle Truelove said: RIP lance. You have been so wonderful and caring to all of us haunters throughout the years. I am so glad to share a friendship and so many memories with you!
