Ronald "Butch" K. O'Dett

April 3, 1952 — July 10, 2023

Croghan, New York

Ronald (Butch) Keith O’Dett Jr., 71 years old, Ron passed away after a very short illness on Monday July 10, 2023 at Albany Medical Center. He was born April 3, 1952 to the late Ronald Keith O’Dett Sr. and Alice Lorraine (Trudeau) Weston in Carthage, NY.

Ron is survived by his longtime companion Tina Belair, when he last saw her, he whispered “I Love You”. Along with 4 daughters, Holli Carter,  Virginia (O’Dett) Giamarino, and Katherine O’Dett. His Grandchildren Noah Larkin, Elliot Carter, Harper Carter, Mason Giamarino, The Twins- Joshua and Rowan Giamarino, and Jacob Giamarino. Ron also leaves behind his beautiful (fat) cat Henry.

Also survived by his 3 sisters Tracey (O’Dett) Scott, Cassandra Handley, Amy June O’Dett, and speaking to his only brother Patrick O’Dett on a daily basis.

The family all knew that Ron loved working and riding his Harley’s. He was a woodworker who made beautiful furniture that will be able to be passed on for generations. His love for camping, sitting by the campfire shooting the breeze and fishing at Sperryville and on the Independence River was the most enjoyable times.

Ron worked construction as a foreman and built many roads on base which at the time was Camp Drum and transitioning to Fort Drum. He also had a hand in constructing the bridge between East and West Carthage. Ron was the first President of the “SAVE THE BUCKLEY BUILDING” organization in the early 2000. Served for a short period of time in the US Navy and was stationed on the U.S.S Roosevelt.

Per Ron’s wishes there will be no calling hours, but a family gathering will be scheduled for a later date on the Independence River.

The O’Dett Family has suffered greatly the last 2 weeks, we would like to share the “O’Dett-Buck Family” motto:

“Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle grows. Every crisis faced together makes the circle stronger”
