Obituary for Michael F. O'Donnell

Michael Francis O’Donnell, 54, of Colorado, passed away Sunday, November 25, 2018 at his home in Denver, Colorado.

Raised in Brockton, Michael graduated from Brockton High School in 1982 and held a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Travel Administration from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Following college, Michael relocated to Orlando, FL to work as a Casting Manager for Walt Disney World. His work with Disney took him around the world pairing the work he enjoyed with his love of travel. His work as a Human Resources Executive following his time at Disney brought him around the country with stops in Houston, Kansas, and Ohio before he finally settled in Denver, CO where he has lived for over 20 years.

Michael was a lover of food, wine and travel. He was an extraordinary cook and loved to share his food with others. Michael enjoyed yearly trips to Key West with his close friends, adventures to Las Vegas to see his favorite performers and travels through Europe.

Along with enjoying cooking and traveling, Michael dedicated his time and talents as board member of Project Angel Heart, a nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers nutritious meals to improve quality of life, at no cost, for those coping with life-threatening illness in the Denver Metro and Colorado Springs areas. Michael is remembered for his generosity, sense of humor and love for his family.
