Arrangements for Osman Tatar



Osman Tatar, 56, husband of Lillian Tatar and father of Lila and Zach Tatar passed away Thursday afternoon the 16th of May, of a massive heart attack at his home in El Cajon, CA. Osman strongly supported his daughter and wife's show horse passion although he rarely attended away shows. Although he was extremely proud of his daughter's tremendous success recently, he seemed most proud of Lila's appointment to the USEF Young Riders International Saddle Seat team.

He attended an open house celebration where teammate Caroline Cherry and Lila were presented to a large crowd in a patriotic presentation showcasing Team USA's Gold medal. Osman was born a French Algerian who immigrated to the US during his college years understood International sport of any kind. He was especially proud of Lila's role riding in foreign competition. Final arrangements are still pending until Monday, but notes of condolence may be sent to the Tatars at:
2333 Pence Dr
El Cajon, CA 92019

The funeral will be at 2:30 on Friday, May 24 at La Vista Memorial Park at the Al-Rahma Garden 3191 Orange Street National City, CA 91950. Everyone is invited to the house for lunch-dinner to celebrate Osman's life after the funeral. Osman always loved a good party.
