Not sure what to say?

I had Mr. O'Dowd as a 5th grade teacher in 1969 at PS 29. He was one of the BEST teachers that I had, pushing us ahead in math, introducing us to some of the great poets (I can still recite Old Ironsides, by Oliver Wendell Holmes, But one of my fondest memories about Mr. O'Dowd's 5th grade class in 1969 was him bringing a television into the classroom and us watching the Miracle Mets in the 1969 World Series.

My thoughts are with the O'Dowd family during this difficult time.

To John, Amy and kids:

Mr. O'Dowd always had a friendly smile for me whenever our paths crossed at the Sacred Heart sports events. Please accept my condolences on your family's loss.

John very sorry to hear about your dad may he R.I.P. my sincere condolences Kevin Shimrock

The loss of a love one is difficult. May the precious memories you have help you cope and bring you peace. 1 Thes. 4:14 can bring you some comfort knowing that there is a future for the ones we have lost in death can be reassuring. May the God of peace be with you and your family

To the O'Dowd family I send my condolences. Was sorry to hear of his passing. He and I shared a bad habit, plus take it from me I know how difficult it is to take care of an elderly parent
To John Jr you've been my friend a long time despite things and you always will be and am thankful for that friendship
RIP Mr O'Dowd
