Owen Joseph O'Neill III

September 11, 1962 ~ November 12, 2019 (age 57)


Owen Joseph O'Neill passed away suddenly on the evening of November 12, 2019.  O.J. was fully engaged in life. His life's passion was restoring vintage cars and simply the love of cars and the friends that he shared this passion with. O.J. was also a committed caregiver to his mom, Dee. Dee's care required a large commitment on his part which he always gave willingly and with love. O.J. was as generous and gracious with many of his friends that found themselves in need. O.J. worked for twenty years in The Howard County Public School system as a counselor and advocate for students in need. His greatest legacy will be those students' lives he touched and changed forever. You know who you are. O.J. will be missed by us all.
