Obituary of Brian O'Dor

It is with profound sadness that we share the sudden passing of Brian O’Dor on November 23rd 2021 in his 51st year. Brian, beloved son to Nijole Bawks and the late Joseph O’Dor. Loving father to Chase and Logan. Much loved brother to Russ, Cindy, Ron, Deanna, Brenda, and Bruce. Lovingly remembered by his nieces and nephews Evan, Meredith, Jordan, Lauren, Brennan, Justin, Colin, Monique, Erika, Christian, Wyatt and Kyle. Second uncle to Maika and Simon. Born in Etobicoke, Ontario on August 29th 1970, Brian was the youngest in a large, loving family. Growing up he was particularly close with his brother Bruce and sister Brenda. As the ‘baby’ of the family, he was devoted to his mom, always wanting the best for her. Brian’s greatest achievement in life was being a dad to Chase and Logan. In his eyes, they were perfection, and they turned his simple life into a fulfilling and cherished adventure. He valued every moment spent with his boys. He loved taking Logan on long drives, even if there was no destination in mind just so they could spend time together. He was a constant support to Chase, encouraging him in every decision he made no matter what. He enjoyed watching the Leaf’s play with his sons, having great conversations, going for long walks, playing sports, video games, enjoying the company of others, and a ton of laughter with Chase and Logan. It was in these moments that he spent loving his boys unconditionally, completely present, and attentive to their needs, supporting and encouraging them in every decision they made where a sacred bond between father and sons was created and will continue to live on forever. People mattered to Brian. He adored his mother, loved his family, and he had great compassion for his friends. If you were one of the lucky ones to know Brian he would make sure that he greeted you with a huge smile and the biggest hug. In a crowd he always had the right joke to make you laugh. Brian’s infectious smile and positive outlook on life was admired by all that met him. There was an innocence and gentleness in his heart, and his wit and sense of humour could quickly lighten up the darkest mood. He saw the good in everyone and everything, and his kind and loving spirit will be missed by all who knew him and loved him. “No longer by our side, but forever in our hearts”
