John J. O’Donnell Jr., of Marlton, passed away after an 8-week battle against COVID-19 on
December 30th, 2020, age 64. Loving husband of Susan (nee Oldfield). Devoted father of Becky
Marcen (Matt), John J. O’Donnell III (Nicole). Caring grandfather of Matthew, Taylor, Fallon,
Victoria and Johnny. Dear son of John J. O’Donnell and the late Carlene O’Donnell and caring
brother of Karen O’Donnell. Adoring brother-in-law of Maureen and the late Michael Fasone,
Marie and Joseph Sears and Barbara and Michael McDonald. John is survived by many loving
nieces, nephews, cousins and great friends.
John was an industrial maintenance mechanic most of his life with careers at Whitman’s
Chocolates and Ocean Spray. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and tinkering around fixing things in
his garage. He also loved finding deals at yard sales, or lately on Facebook Marketplace. John
would talk to anyone and quickly develop friends anywhere he was. He was the type of person
that would drop everything he was doing to help you out with whatever it was you needed.
John’s number one passion though was clear. It was Sue, his loving wife of 44 years and his
family. John and Sue devoted their lives to create a place for their growing family to gather. It
was at their shore house where so many great memories were had that will be remembered
forever. Thanks for paving the way John.
