The son of Robert and Merrill Debbs, twin brother of Olivia Merrill Debbs, Oakley had unknowingly eaten a pastry that contained nuts, and a delayed reaction of more than two hours resulted in an anaphylactic seizure.  Although Oakley was quickly resuscitated by the local EMT, he was declared brain dead four days later."
