My condolences Mike.One of the things I remember most about your dad was he had his hair combed just right all the time.If he would come and start messing with me I would run my hand through his hair which would send him to find the closest mirror so he could get it perfect once again.

Joann, Mike, Dianne and Family,
Kathy and I send our deepest condolences. Although Joann and Odell are a generation ahead of Kathy and I we became friends on our yearly visits to Cocoa Beach. We grew to love the Rowe family and always looked forward to sharing their company. I will always remember Odell's gentle and friendly nature. He will be missed, but his memory will live in our hearts and minds.
To my good buddy Mike, I know you will miss your Dad but remember he
now has the best parking space in Heaven! Once again our deepest sympathies. Love, Jeff and Kathy Finkbiner

The conversations were always happy and funny, and we are grateful to have met such an incredibly wonderful man. We are here for anything you may need, and keep you in our hearts and prayers.

Love,

A really good man that took a lot of pride in himself, always a great boss at GM. You didn't find many people that cared about details like Odell. Rest in peace.
