Frank went home to be with His Lord on December 2, 2021. He was born in Rochester NY in 1962. As a teen he volunteered with Y.O.U.T.H.A.R.C. working with mentally challenged children at the Al Segel Center. He also did presentations at local schools on what it was like to live with Cerebral Palsy. As an adult he was an officer and driving force for the Rochester Big Wheels Bowling League for the Handicapped. He enjoyed music, DJing for occasions like his stepson wedding, was an armature writer. And toward the end of his life he had great pleasure making latch hook rugs for family and friends.
Predeceased by His Father John E. O’Donnell, Mother Beverly (Smith) O’Donnell and Brother John Edward O’Donnell. Survived by Domestic Partner Denise Carmichael, Sisters Kathy (Michael) Snavely, Suzan (Christopher) Weiss and Mary Margaret (Michael) Goodenough. Step Sons James Gray and Jeremy (Amanda) Carmichael, Nephew Michael (Katie) Snavely and Niece Karen Snavely
The family requests in lieu of flowers please donate to either United Cerebral Palsy or Association for Retarted Children.
Frank, we love you and miss you.
I’ll always remember Frank’s firm, funny leadership over the best bowling experience I’ve ever had. Incredible guy to talk over a pint with. He’ll be sorely missed. Condolences to family.
I knew Frank as a kind, and humorous soul. Always up for some trivia , and always having a smile on his face whenever I saw him. May you forever be at peace, thank you for all the wonderful things you gave us all. My condolences to all of his family. Rest well my friend.
Frank was as independent as he could possibly be. He was stubborn as the day is long, fiercely loyal and generous to family and friends, a lover of music and just enough beer to drown out the bad times and celebrate the good: in other words, Irish and Proud of it! I was one of those friends he was fiercely loyal to, even when most would have turned their backs! I will miss him forever!
I will remember the trivia night we played with Frank for music trivia, he was so much fun and always smiling. Frank you were a great man and you will be missed. My condolences to all of his loved ones and those who’s lives were touches by Frank.
