Obituary

Michael (Mike) Francis O’Mara, 91, of Longwood Florida, by way of Central Islip, NY, passed away on February 23, 2021.

 

He was born to parents Edward O’Mara and Eileen Downey in Bay Shore, NY on February 16, 1930.  He was a Navy Corporal and attained his nursing degree in the 1950s.  He later continued his studies and completed his Master’s Degree in Psychological Counseling in the 1980s.  He retired in 1985 from the New York State Office of Mental Heath after a 35 year career.

 

Mike was predeceased by the love of his life, Margaret (Maggie Gomez) O’Mara.  Mike and Maggie had 4 children, Michael (Mickey) who lives on Long Island with his partner Kathy, John and Sharon who reside in Longwood, Florida, and Brian, who passed in 1977.  He has 3 granddaughters, Meghan from Valrico, Florida, Jackie and Rebecca from Long Island, and 2 granddaughters Isabella and Julianna from Valrico, Florida. Mike was predeceased by his sister Patricia Jennings and has two surviving nephews, Edward and William Jennings, and a niece, Patricia Cruz.

 

Mike was an amazing athlete in his younger days and also coached boy’s Little League baseball.  He was big New York Giant’s fan and was very proud of his Irish heritage.  Mike love to sing, dance and entertain.  He was always the life of the gathering and the party did not end until he sang some Irish tunes.  Two of his favorites were Danny Boy and his original “The Rose of Ponce” – a fun tribute to Maggie.

 

We will be having a Celebration of Mike’s life in the near future when it will be safe for his family and friends to gather.

    Mike and Maggie were a wonderful pair, and Mike carried on the wonderfulness after Maggie passed. He was so much fun and a natural entertainer. Thanks for the memories, Mike O'Mara. You are missed.
