LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas family says their father can rest easy in heaven after watching his final dream come true over the weekend.

Rick Oswalt passed away Wednesday morning in Longview. Oswalt was diagnosed with stage four cancer earlier this month.

Volunteers met with Oswalt’s family after hearing his final wish was to make sure the dream home he started to build for his wife would be finished.

Family members say Oswalt and his wife moved into a trailer to build the home. They say Oswalt continued to build after his diagnosis, but became too sick to continue.

Volunteers picked up where Oswalt left off and say the house will be ready in about three weeks.
