sounds like a PCV valve issue to me. Are the rest of your plugs clean?

Postive crankcase ventilation system...pretty much the tube from your engine/valvetrain back to your intake that relieves the pressure from the small amount of piston ring blowby that every engine has...you get some oil coming through there and any excess oil can foul the plugs. But if it's just one...unless the pcv vents right into that cylinder rather than higher up in the intake...it's probably not the issue.

Bad valve guide or valve stem seal? Wouldn't necessarily affect compression if the valve still seats in the head but it would let oil run down the valve stem while parked, seep oil into the combustion chamber, and keep the plug from firing if oil's getting on it too. Before it stopped firing, did you ever notice a puff of blue smoke on startup or an oil-burning-like smell from the exhaust while running? Less likely, but if not a valvetrain leak you might have a blown head gasket leaking oil into the cylinder.

The big thing to figure out is where's the oil coming from...
