  1. As one of the other many cousins, I send sympathy at this time. Over the years we lost touch, but was happy to visit with Gary at the arena a few years ago when our grandson was playing in Mooretown. Rest in peace Gary as you are reunited with your parents.

    I am so sorry to hear that my cousin Gary O'Dell has passed. I have very early memories of our families visiting and having meals together.

    Please know that I am so sorry that Gary has left us! I know he suffered with many skin cancers. I would meet up with him on occasion in the RBC parking lot as we banked at the same bank in Corunna. He was such a good guy! We will miss him! Lynn O'Dell Dobson

  4. To Gary's Family I wish to offer my sincere condolences on your loss.

    While I personally did not know Gary, I did see Gary on numerous occasions over many years watching hockey games at Mooretown Arena. I know he displayed a real interest in local hockey at all levels.

    May he rest in peace.
