IN MEMORIAM

Terry O’Hara

ONEONTA – How does one even begin to tell the story of someone like Terry and keep it brief?   He was born Oct. 28, 1948 in Oneonta, the youngest son of Thomas P. and Margaret A. (Schoeller) O’Hara.  He met his wife, Cindy, at Plattekill Mountain and they were married May 26, 1979, in the Jay Gould Memorial Church, Roxbury.

Terry was known for his adventurous spirit, his smile and the glint in his eyes.  As a proud Irishman, he was never without a joke to tell, or a story to share.  He had patience, was a great listener with compassion and respect for others and he always wanted to make people smile, and –  wow – did he know how to be a good friend.
