Barry Thomas O'Donovan

January 30, 1952 — August 26, 2023

Barry Thomas O’Donovan was born January 30,1952 in Portland, Maine. He was preceded in death by his parents, Phyllis Helen Crocker O’Donovan and Charles Francis O’Donovan, as well as two of his brothers, Dennis Lee O’Donovan and Timothy Patrick O’Donovan. He is survived by his brothers Alan Wayne O’Donovan of Montana, Paul Phillip O’Donovan of California, Kevin Peter O’Donovan of Arizona, and his sister Charlene Frances Hogan of California. He is also survived by his four nieces, Heather O’Donovan-Marz, Erin Boyd, Kendra O’Donovan-Dye, Kelly O’Donovan-Carlson.

Barry was about two years old when the family moved from Maine to California. He was always a storyteller and very curious. When he was four on wash day he’d go around and collect the neighborhood gossip and bring it back to his mom. His siblings called him the walking encyclopedia because he always knew something about any subject that came up. As a young adult attending community college he was a class or two away from five different majors. Ultimately Barry joined the Army and was a helicopter mechanic in Korea. This was the beginning of his love of aviation. He spent the rest of his life working on planes.

Barry was a storyteller, a jokester, a mentor, a debater, a mechanic, a lover of music, a great friend, brother, and uncle. He will be tremendously missed by all those that loved him.
