North Scituate Beach, MA

David Bernard O’Connor, 77, of North Scituate Beach (formerly of Cambridge Mass., Rye N.Y., and Greenwich Conn.) died peacefully at his home early in the morning on Saturday, February 17, 2024, having spent his final weeks immersed in the loving embrace of family, friends, and neighbors, his faithful grand-dog Minot always nestled on his lap. David was the proud and loving father of Brian Fallon O’Connor of Los Angeles and Scituate (TJ Hawthorne) and leaves his dear friend and former wife Joan (Chiara) Kelley (Thomas Kelley) as well as an extended family of cousins, godchildren and, as he called them, “grand-cousins.” David was predeceased by his adoring parents John Francis and Clare Fallon O’Connor, his cherished maternal aunt and godmother, Eleanor Fallon, and his much loved and doting paternal aunts, Eileen O’Connor, Mary Granham, Josephine Kopp, and Margaret O’Connor. Through his marriage to Joan, he acquired lifelong in-laws whom he cherished as much as his own blood relatives – survived by his much-loved aunt Angela Chiara of Avon, Conn.; predeceased by his aunt and uncle Elizabeth “Betty” and Rudolph “Rudy” Russo of Cambridge and uncle Matthew Chiara of Avon. He is survived by many Corcoran, Chiara, and Russo cousins and by his honorary family in Ontario, Canada. David graduated from the Benedictine boarding school Delbarton in Morristown, N.J., before attending Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. He was called home to Cambridge, Mass. as his father faced terminal cancer. He took time off school to live and work as a volunteer with VISTA in the South Bronx. He completed his bachelor’s degree at Boston State College, while volunteering as an EMT with the American Red Cross. He served with the Red Cross during the July 1977 flood in Johnstown, Penn. and during the Blizzard of 1978 in Eastern Massachusetts. Later he graduated from New England School of Law in Boston and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. He was the long-time Director of Emergency Management for the City of Cambridge. A man of varied interest, David always had a book in his hand, was a decades-long Friend of Harvard Hockey, attending both men’s and women’s home games religiously, and was an avid philatelist from his young childhood. David loved travelling around Europe and the Caribbean. The farthest he ventured was East Africa. The vibrancy of the people, landscape, and wildlife of Kenya and Tanzania made a lasting impression on him. His most frequently visited destination, not surprisingly, was Ireland. For many reasons his favorite Irish trip was the one Brian gave him to celebrate his 70th birthday. Brian and David spent two weeks visiting the west coast of Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Dublin, staying at castles, manor houses, and other magnificent spots. Proud of his Irish Heritage, David’s forbears hailed from Counties Kerry (O’Connor and Cronin), Roscommon (Fallon), and Cork (Corcoran). David had a passion to learn about all aspects of Irish music, history, literature, society, and even language – choosing to kick off his retirement by delving into studies of the Irish language at Harvard Extension School. He supplemented his Extension School studies by spending multiple consecutive summers staying in a “Gaeltacht” region studying Irish at Oideas Gael in Glencolmcille, Donegal. Daíthí (David) was quite proud of his proficiency in the language of his ancestors. David was a devout Roman Catholic throughout his life. During high school and college years he was a particularly avid reader of the writings of Thomas Merton. In retirement, David joined and was active on the Pastoral Council of Christ by the Sea Catholic Collaborative, representing the parishes of St Anthony’s of Padua in Cohasset and St. Mary of the Assumption in Hull. Perhaps David’s greatest attribute was his huge loving heart. David loved “out loud.” When he loved you, he told you; and he shared your accomplishments, honors, exploits, and more with anyone and everyone. There was never any doubt whether you were loved by this special man. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local animal charity. Funeral arrangements by McNamara-Sparrell at One Summer Street in Cohasset. Visiting hours will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, February 25 from 3pm to 6pm. A funeral mass will be held on Monday, February 26, at 10a.m. at St Anthony’s Church at Two Summer Street in Cohasset, with a short reception to follow. Burial will be at Cambridge Cemetery at 89 Coolidge Ave., Cambridge. “Slán go fóill mo cara. Slán abhaile.” (Goodbye my friend. Safe home.) “Féidir liom siad a choinneáil I gCuideacht na naomh.” (May his holy soul be on the right side of God.” To to the family or in memory of David Bernard O'Connor, please
