Steve wrote on his own FB profile in the About Me section: "Healthcare professional. I love being a critical care nurse and I work with some brilliant people- hope some of that will rub off! Cancer survivor of 10 years.
Musician- a real one- while certain contemporaries were working on their hair and practicing rockstar poses in the mirror with hundreds of people swinging from their jock, I was actually mastering an instrument. I had to work three times as hard as these clowns did. I don't use rock and roll gimmicks or hide my face behind a bunch of hair because I don't need that shit to own a crowd :-) Dazzle them with brilliance or baffle them with bullshit, but at least be honest about it and know which role you're playing"
He died on Wednesday November 16, 2011 in new albany. And that was his hometown for the last 10 years of his life.
Memorial service was celebrated at 04:00 pm on Saturday, November 19, 2011. In lieu of flowers, the family of steve requested donations to Kosair Children's Hospital.
According to Dale Thompson, Steve took his own life because of a long period of depression.
Dale Thompson reported on November 17, 2011: By now many of you have heard about the death of Bride’s off and on long time guitarist and friend Steve Osborne. Steve’s death was a suicide. Before anyone begins to judge my friend I want to say for certainty Steve is with the Lord and his pain on this earth is behind him. Steve was one of the few people that I considered “dear true Christians.” No one will ever know why Steve left this world in this horrible fashion but depression and mental pain is real. I am sure he would say to anyone experiencing this sort of illness to trust God, seek professional help and have faith. 1Cr 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. (Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Randy Rhoads will have to step aside as God’s guitar players for Steve Osborne has entered that next plain of life.
