Oliver Edward Odell

One of Oak Groves' most beloved octogenarians was found dead on his kitchen floor. Oliver Edward Odell, a long time sufferer of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), was cleaning his oven when he was overtaken by the lemony odor of oven cleaner. Oliver, born right here in Oak Grove, Ohio October 1, 1929, was the only child of Oscar and Odette (Oppenheimer) Odell. He married Olivia Orin on February 14, 1948. She preceded him in death. There were no offspring. Mr. Odell was a lifetime member of the Grand Order of the Ogling Owls and served four five-year terms as president. He also loved reading, walking and obsessive house cleaning. Calling hours was Tuesday evening at the Orlando Mortuary. Burial service was at Out of the Way Cemetery in Oak Grove, Ohio.
