Mason was the oldest of four brothers. Mason and his twin brother Dylan were inseparable during childhood, going on adventures, and building forts and tree houses in their grandmother’s backyard. He was fiercely loyal and protective of his family and his friends, especially his brothers Dylan, Peyton, and Damian.
Mason was generous, charming, and had an infectious sense of humor. A graduate from Quabbin Regional High School, Mason was especially talented in mathematics, and spent time at Manhattan College in New York studying engineering.
Mason was passionate about many things including Chinese food, biking, and being in nature - especially the calming effect of being near water. Mason collected trading cards with huge enthusiasm. He was an avid watcher of Japanese anime and had a small but prized sword collection. Mason loved Hayao Miyazaki movies, especially ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ and ‘Spirited Away.’ Many of us spent hours watching these movies with him.
Mason’s love for his family was always clear, even during some very tough times. We love you Mason. You will always be with us. We miss you terribly, but are happy that you are finally at peace.
Mason is survived by his grandmothers Gail Osborne and Barbara Roy, mother Kristina Osborne, brothers Dylan Osborne, Peyton Ortiz and Damian Ortiz, family members Mandy Osborne, Joshua Osborne, Matthew Osborne, Ellis Traver, Chantel Tom, Jocelynn Bousquet, Everitt Bullard, and many friends who were also Mason’s chosen family.
