Thomas P. “Odie” O’Donnell, 67, Schuylkill Haven, died Friday morning at his home with his wife Robin by his side.
Born February 11, 1952 in Pottsville, he was the son of the Francis and Margaret (Feinauer) O’Donnell.
He was a 1970 graduate of Nativity BVM High School, Pottsville and a 1976 graduate of Reading Area Community College.
Odie was an excellent story teller who lovingly had the “gift to gab”. He took great pride in his Top 500 1960’s playlist and loved sports especially March Madness. He could often be found hiking or walking his dogs Yogi, Lucy, or Cody or taking care of his cats.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a sister Ann Gorman; brothers Michael and Joseph O’Donnell; and a sister in law Mary O’Donnell.
Odie is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Robin (Edmonds) O’Donnell, Schuylkill Haven; brothers Francis “Frank” O’Donnell, Pottsville and Daniel “Danny” O’Donnell and his wife Mary Ellen, Pottsville; sisters Suzie Gillespie and her husband William, Washington and Peggy Kaplan, Nevada; several nieces and nephews and his fur child Wendy.
