Raymond J. O’Donnell of Holland died peacefully and surrounded by his family on Friday, March 13, 2020 at his home.  He was 92. 

Raymond was the loving husband of Doris “Dorie” Mack O’Donnell.  The two were married 55 years but shared over 58 years of love and life’s adventures. 

Born in Wilkes-Barre, PA he was the son of the late Francis and Elizabeth Barnett O’Donnell and was preceded in death by his brothers, George, Frank, Jimmy, and Bobby O’Donnell. 

Ray attended St. John’s Elementary School and St. Mary’s High School in Wilkes-Barre before going on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in education from Kings University and his Master’s Degree in education from Scranton University.  He would also later earn his Principal Certificate. 

Ray led a long career with Bristol Township School District, retiring from the role of Teacher / Principal after over 47 years of service.

Along with Dorie, Ray was a dedicated parishioner of St. Bede Parish in Holland where he was a very familiar face. Over the years he became active as a Eucharistic Minister, a greeter, was part of the Knights of Columbus, assisted with the Children’s Liturgies, and Taught CCD for over 40 years.   Additionally, he and Dorie led Bible School, and he was also active with the Adult Education and Discovering Christ Programs. 

In his leisure time, Ray enjoyed countless trips to Wildwood Crest during the summers and he and Doris also travelled to countless historic sites over the years.

Most of all, Ray was a beloved husband, uncle, and brother and will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.
