Ohl still caring for people in new career

— A longtime physician’s assistant in Chickasha, Ohl stepped down in June from the practice of medicine at Five Oaks Medical Center.

But it soon became apparent to him that he wasn’t finished with the work of caring for people.  

“I’m not old enough to be retired full time.”

Ohl was soon looking for a second career, just about the same time Ferguson Funeral Home owner Charles Ferguson was deciding to add the position of prearrangement counselor to his staff. The two men had a meeting of the minds in August, but before Ohl could begin his new career, he had to be licensed by the Oklahoma Insurance Department.

He completed a program in life insurance and passed a state exam. On Sept. 1, he received the license and officially assumed his new role as a life agent representing Homesteaders Life Company. He attended a training seminar in Tulsa in September and another in Seminole in October.

Ohl can be reached at the funeral home at 224-1344.
