I just found this while looking for Michael. I’m so sad. He taught me how to tend bar at the Dead End along with Dale Patton who we lost quite awhile ago. I’m sure those two are having cocktails every day together!! I’ll see my buddies on the other side❤️

Mike was our Sea Isle neighbor for 10 years. Always enjoyed visiting with him when we were down and could always count on him to keep an eye on our place. He will be missed!

Mike was our neighbor in Sea Isle for 10 years. We always enjoyed visiting with Mike when we were down; and could always count on him to keep an eye on our place when we were not there. Will Miss our Friend "Irish Mike"

Losing Mike O'Donnell is the passing of a one of a kind original, in spite of his perpetual recycling of himself and his jokes and his pranks. Nobody had more zest for life and zeal for the individual spotlight that he shared with his friends, and strangers who were his future friends. He was quick with a joke and to light up a smoke, and he would drink to the future as he enjoyed the present. Mike O'Donnell was the gift that just always kept on giving, and then you would be taken along for the bumpy ride as the laughs and the turbulence took you away. He left too soon but he lived it up the right way in the right and wrong places, and if you look up at the clouds from now on, the occasional rains and lightning bolts might just be thrown by him to keep himself and everybody else amused. Some people love a good parade, but the rare people know how to provide one. Mike was a one of a kind diamond in the rough who could play it straight and cause the flush, and he was the joker in the deck who could fill the house with laughter. Raise a glass and look to the sky. Listen to the thunder and know that he is still laughing. To live in the hearts and minds that you leave behind is not to die. He might tell you that it is just another relocation and reinvention of himself. Who could completely doubt it. It was what he did, and who he was. Take Mike's perpetual advise. The helping hand that you are looking for is located at the end of your own arm. Be yourself like he was. Everybody else is already taken anyway. They took a good one this week, but the occasional dances with the devil help you know where he is coming from, and if Mike O'Donnell is trying to earn his wings rest assured that he will keep on flying.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

What a kind, caring, humorous gentleman Michael was. I will forever think of him with a smile. He was such an endearing character and will be missed by all. Heartfelt condolences to his family.

My thoughts and prayers are for Mike's family. I will forever cherish my time I had with him while he worked at the Sea Isle pool. Thank you for sharing him with us here in Sea Isle, it won't be the same without him.
