Obituary for William M O'Brien

William Michael O'Brien passed peacefully on February 11th at home at the age of 89 after a lengthy battle with lung cancer.

He was born to Marion and Tom O'Brien in New York on August 2, 1930. He is predeceased by his parents, his brother, Tom O'Brien and his sisters, Rosemary O'Brien and Joan Flynn.

Bill was a loving husband to his wife of 52 years, Marion O'Brien (nee Klemm). She was the love of his life and he called her his beautiful bride. Together, they enjoyed sharing their love of God and family. They were devoted couple even holding hands until the very end.

He survived by his daughter, Marion O'Brien Donoghue and her four children: Erin, Shannon, Kelly and Shane. He was a proud and loving Papa and enjoyed his grandchildren immensely. He especially loved to tell them jokes, play cards and hear about their activities.

William graduated from Power Memorial Academy in NYC and later attended CCNY at night while working. He was drafted into the Army during the Korean Conflict and was stationed at Fort Benning, GA. Bill worked in the insurance field his entire life, most recently for Mutual of America. He has been retired for almost 25 years devoting his time to volunteering, praying, rooting for the Eagles and enjoying a quiet life with his beloved wife, Marion. He will me missed tremendously, but his gift of faith, love and kindness will be his legacy.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Cancer Society. Thank you.
