My father Michael O’Hara unexpectedly passed away 28 October 2018 at the young age of 55. He was running, something he loved to do, and experienced a cardiac event. My father was a veteran who served 23 years of dedicated service in the United States Air Force. Due to the city and location of my parents retirement house, the nearest veterans cemetery is over an hour away. My mother Deborah O’Hara could not have her husband of 32 years so far away from her, so she layed my father to rest in a private cemetery close to her so that she may visit often. The donations will be used to offset the private burial cost as well as to have a proper memorial headstone created for my father and mother on their side by side burial plot. Life is short. Tell the people around you that you love them every time you see them and forgive often.
