Ricky L. O’Donnell, 48, of Marquette, Michigan, passed away Sunday, July 1, 2018, at The Lighthouse at Ishpeming Health and Rehabilitation Center, while under the loving care of his family and the U.P. Home Health and Hospice, following a short battle with cancer.

Ricky was born Aug. 30, 1969, in Baraboo, the son of William T. and the late Suzanne J. (Kelly) O’Donnell. Ricky worked in the Marquette area with Mike Davis Construction and Sunrise Builders prior to running his own business, O’Donnell Painting and Construction. Ricky will be remembered as a funny guy who loved music, stacks of cash, his stereos and big TVs. He was a very hard worker and would give you the shirt off of his back. He loved to help people and was a fighter in every way.

He will be missed by his daughter, Jenna Olson; grandson, Jayce Watson; father, William O’Donnell; brother, David O’Donnell and Angi; sister, Dee Dee (Greg) Olson; his best buddy, Larry Spagnolo; and friends. He was lovingly cared for by his aunt, Mary O’Donnell.

Private graveside services will be held in August at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Portage.
