In loving memory of Dennis Julian O'Connell who sadly passed away on 21st February 2020. Forever in our Hearts.
Loved and loving partner of Toni. Beloved father of Allison and Anika, father-in-law to Barney and Nick, grandfather to Ollie, Georgia, Myles and Lachie. Beloved brother of Bernadette and Kerry, and cherished uncle to Julie, Fiona, Danny and Jo.
Dennis ‘Doc’ O’Connell will be deeply and sadly missed by his family, friends, and so many people whom he connected with through his tireless conservation work.
Doc was a beacon of positivity, a great conversationalist, talented writer and artist blessed with abundant creativity and intellect. He lived and breathed his values and inspired many others to do so too. He was kind to his core but courageous, always willing to speak up for what he believed in. He loved to share a laugh, and laughed wholeheartedly. He will be missed for his humour, his wisdom, his community service, his vast knowledge and his uniqueness… he was one of a kind, a great man, and he has left behind a remarkable legacy that so many of us will cherish for the rest of our lives.
Requiem Mass for the Repose of the Soul of Dennis "Doc" Julian O'Connell, will be offered at St John's Catholic Church, 52 Yarra Street, Heidelberg, on THURSDAY (February 27, 2020) commencing at 11:30am.
No flowers by request.
