Obituary of Peter M. Oddy

Peter M. Oddy was born on March 2, 1946, in Buffalo, NY, to Daniel and Clementina Oddy. A stubborn but compassionate man, Peter was always ready to help anyone. He took pride in his life and family, despite his private nature. Peter was also a man of immense faith and a long-term member of St. John Paul II Church, which he attended every day. You could never find Peter without a rosary in his pocket. His family was also important to Peter, and he was incredibly close with his niece, Lisa, and his cousin Butchie. He loved animals, and his life revolved around his dog Honey who meant the world to him. Peter was deeply involved in his community. He lived to serve. He took pride in being a Barber and worked multiple different jobs. He had a long-term membership with Lake Shore Volunteer Fire Company was a massive part of his life. He was a proud firefighter. When not working with the fire company, Peter was also involved with the Boy Scouts of America, often volunteering at the soup kitchen, and helping those in need. When not spending time with his loved ones or serving his community, Peter enjoyed many hobbies. If he was not riding his motorcycle, He was showing off his excellent cooking skills, specializing in Italian food. His pasta, calamari, and sauce were the stars of the show. He also spent some time traveling with the Southtown Travel Club through St. John Paul II and took a very memorable trip to Ireland, which he enjoyed immensely. His home was also his pride and joy, always upgrading it and taking the time to keep it meticulously clean and tidy. Peter will be remembered for his loving heart and his duty to his community. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He touched so many lives and souls and always tried to make a difference. Oddy, Peter M. January 19, 2022 of Hamburg, NY.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me, I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day. To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I've found that peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss. Ah yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full. I savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now. He set me free.
