He and his brother ran a dairy operation up on the Elochoman Valley, which they inherited from their parents. He retired from managing the farm in 2004. Ozment was elected to the Wahkiakum County Commission three times; he also served on the Washington State Fish and Wildlife Commission, served as chair for the final two years of his service. Memorial services are being planned, and will be held at a future date in Cathlamet.
