Kevin David O’Donnell, 73, of St. Petersburg, Florida, passed away peacefully Thursday afternoon, August 8, 2019 at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System under the care of hospice.

Kevin was born February 19, 1946 in Port Chester, New York to Robert Brendan and Grace (Fullerton) O’Donnell and grew up in Tampa, Florida where he graduated from high school. He then enlisted in the United States Army, having served in Turkey and Greece as an attache to NATO and being honorably discharged in 1965.

Following his service to his country, Kevin attended Northern Michigan University in the late 1960’s where he served as student body president. After college, he was employed as an outreach coordinator for the VA in the state of Florida, meeting the needs of homeless veterans. He also served on the National Committee for Homeless Veterans.

Kevin thoroughly enjoyed his regular trips to Negaunee to visit family and friends and spend time at camp. In addition to being an avid Negaunee Miner fan, he loved his New York Yankees and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Surviving are his son, Patrick (Jennifer) O’Donnell of St. Petersburg; his brother, Sean (Kathy) O’Donnell of Negaunee; sisters: Estelle of Tampa, Peggy of Gulf Shores and Maureen (Robert) of Dayton, OH; grandchildren: Christian, Connor and Chelsea O’Donnell; numerous nieces and nephews including Michael (Lacey) O’Donnell of Chassell and Kate O’Donnell of Negaunee; and many extended family members and close friends.

Funeral and military services will be held at Bay Pines VA Cemetery in St. Petersburg. In regards to any memorial considerations, Kevin would be proud if you would shake a veteran’s hand and say ‘thank you.’

Patrick, I worked with your Dad at the Va from 1991 till he retired. He was such a wonderful man, I remember he was out of town and it was Valentine’s Day... he called me and asked me to please find a florist that still had “roses” and take them to your Mom. He loved her so much. We had good times whether it was working or getting together with our spouses and coworkers. I haven’t seen him in quite a few years, but we all talk about the good old days at the VA. Both of your parents were very special people and I am glad that I could call them my friends. I’m so sorry for your loss and hope that you will let me know when his service is at Bay Pines.
