Donald A. O'Shall Sr. Obituary
Donald Alan O'Shall Sr., 68 years old, was born in Franklin, PA on January 30, 1950. He died September 22, 2018 in Citrus County, FL, formerly from Allentown, PA. His mother, Betty M. (McClimans) O'Shall, (Franklin, PA), his father, Robert H. O'Shall, (Pitcairne, PA) and a sister, Cheryl A. O'Shall, (Franklin, PA), preceded him in death. Don is survived by brother Steven R. O'Shall and wife, Kimberly, of Northampton, PA; two sons, Don Jr and wife, Anna, and Matthew Robert, both of Beverly Hills, FL; and one grandchild, Dana Nicole. Don graduated from Liberty High School in Bethlehem, PA. Followed by the U.S. Navy from 1968 to 1971, he turned his interest of Locksmithing and Security into his passion. Don took his passion as far as he could. From owning lock services to authorizing many trade manuals, books, and trade magazine articles, he was a Locksmith Instructor, Institutional Security Consultant, and mentor in the field. Don managed Access Control at Lehigh University, PA, for 25 years. He was a lifetime member of I.L.A., ALOA and received the Philadelphia award and the ALOA life-time achievement awards. His family would like to thank all the many friends and colleagues along the way who have supported and sometimes endured his determined ways. Readily armed with wit, wisdom, or an otherwise unrelenting will, he rarely backed down from a challenge. When he gave a compliment, it was genuine and well earned. When he called you a friend, he meant it. He will be interred at the Florida National Veteran's Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida. May his soul finally rest in the pure Grace of God.
