Jonnie Von Ott Obituary
ODESSA Jonnie Von Ott, age 63 of Burnet, TX, passed away in Temple, TX on Wednesday, August 13, 2014. He was born in Sweetwater, TX on December 1, 1950 to the late Kenneth Charles and Dorothy (Hahn) Ott. He attended Permian High School until drafted to serve in the US Air Force during the Vietnam era.
He was very independent. A sportsman and man's man who enjoyed hunting and fishing. Jonnie was called the "Fish Whisperer," because he could drop a line anywhere and catch a fish. If it was in season, he was hunting for it ---- and sometimes hunting even when it wasn't in season. (He was on a first name basis with the game wardens.) His dogs were his "babies" and he loved them very much.
Those left to cherish his love and memory are his sons, "partners in crime", and fishing buddies: Jason Ott of Odessa, Joshua Ott and wife Rebecca of Bedford, and Shawn Ott and Daniel "Danny" Ott, both of Odessa; daughters: Jennifer Ott Hamilton and husband J. D. Hamilton of Mansfield and Beverly Gifford of Odessa; sister: Patricia Kelly of Odessa; five grandchildren: Madison, Adrian, Tawny, Stacee, and Sally; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother: Michael "Uncle Mike" Ott and sister: Sally "Nanny" Carrell.
The family will receive friends at Acres West Funeral Chapel, 8115 W. University Blvd. Odessa, TX on Sunday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Graveside services with military honors will be 11:00 am Monday, August 18, 2014 at Resthaven North Cemetery in Midland, TX. Arrangements are entrusted to Acres West and condolences to the family may be sent online at
