David H. O’Donnell, 76, passed away on October 24th, 2023 in Ocala, Florida. Born September 20, 1947 to Joyce and William, Dave shared his childhood in Black River, NY with his older brother, John, and twin brother, Dan. Dave attended Carthage High School where he excelled at sports. Dave earned a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Syracuse University and remained in the area where he eventually established his family. Dave was an avid tennis player and well-known figure at many tennis clubs. He also enjoyed spending time on the golf course perfecting his game. Dave loved his son and daughter very much and took great pride in their accomplishments. He beamed when talking about his grandchildren and delighted in the details of every sporting event played by his two grandsons, Carter and Rowen. He was equally proud of their academic achievements. He adored his granddaughter, Ella, who was the light of his life. Dave had an enormous heart and wonderful sense of humor. He was clever and witty, and had an amazing ability to remember details. He was a gifted storyteller who especially enjoyed sharing tales of his many business adventures and numerous tennis accomplishments. He will be remembered for his generosity, quick wit, and kind nature. He carried himself with dignity and strength and will be missed dearly. As Dave would wish there are no services at this time. A celebration of life will occur at a future date. Condolences for the O’Donnell family may be left at www.michaelebrownfuneralservices.com
