Obituary

Nancy Elliott died on March 10th at home with her husband, Bob Adams, at her side. She was born on April 5, 1950 at Women’s Hospital in Washington DC, and she grew up in Arlington, Virginia. She attended Washington and Lee High School, where she was a cheerleader and made many of her lifetime friends. During her high school years, she was fortunate to be able to travel throughout Europe for a summer with friends, camping most of the time. Later, she became a member of the Arlington Virginia Committee of One Hundred. She earned her bachelor's degree from Randolph-Macon Women's College in Lynchburg, Virginia. Soon after graduation, Nancy took a position in the press office of U. S. Senator Lawton Chiles of Florida on Capitol Hill. Initially, she was secretary to the Senator’s Press Secretary, Jack Pridgen. Upon hearing of her death, Pridgen said, "She proved to be such a quick learner and hard worker that she was quickly promoted to the position of Assistant to the Press Secretary. Her dependability and quality work made my job a lot easier. I was able to turn any project over to Nancy, and she would work out the details and carry it beyond my and the Senator's expectations." She continued in this role until she was recruited by the senator's wife to manage the restoration of a brownstone located near the U. S. Supreme Court. It became Florida House, a center of support for Floridians visiting Washington. For years, Nancy carried full responsibility for the facility's operations, dealing with administration, fundraising and the coordination of the Board of Directors. Later in her working career, she was a Vice President at EPB, an international public relations firm. In 1987, she married Bob Adams and moved to New York. While living in New York, she was the Executive Director of the Malignant Hypothermia Association, where she was in charge of fund raising and led the effort to educate doctors, nurses and hospitals about malignant hypothermia, a genetic disease.In 1992, she moved to Atlanta and focused on her home and her work at her church, St. Dunstan’s Episcopal. For two different two-year periods, she was the volunteer treasurer at the church, and for many years was the church Registrar. Nancy had many interests including gardening, traveling, bridge, and playing golf, often times with her husband and his golfing friends. During one round of golf, one of the guys said, “It just isn’t fair that she gets to hit from the red tees when we’re playing for money.” She also loved visiting, traveling and sharing life’s experiences with her six grandchildren. Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Clyde and Betsy Elliott, and her brother, Harry Elliott, all of Northern Virginia. She is survived by her husband, Bob Adams, her stepsons Rob Adams (Connie Adams) of Houston, Texas, James Adams (Toni Adams) of Pikeville, TN, Michael Adams of Houston, Texas, and six grandchildren Bryan, Amber, Gary, Ashley, Abigail, and Laurel Adams. She is also survived by a brother, Thomas Elliott of Vienna, Virginia.

Obituary

Jackie’s parents were Curtis and LaVaughn Fleming. Curtis a well-educated man, and LaVaughn, a radically converted woman of God from North Dakota Mennonite’s Brethren community.  Jacqueline Fleming, born in 1950 was the apple of Curtis’ eye. She learned to sing in church, with a rising intellect and wide ability of talents. Through Curtis’ promotion from Napa to Washington, DC, the family was uprooted. Jackie was 13 years old. With her keen sense of humor, she found many friends at Christ Pentecostal Church and Washington-Lee High School. Jackie now grew into the maturity of her accomplishments and skills. She handled well the word of God, singing both harmony and solos, knitting and sewing, dried flower arrangements, piano and could speak to large numbers of people. Jackie could balance making the honor roll in college with singing in two Christian bands, and performing solos at church. She was a Sunday school teacher to many and helped them to grow in their faith and with her deep knowledge of God’s word. I

In the mid-1970s, her gifts expanded as both secretary to Pastor Jollay, and disc jockey/program manager of WCTN. Jackie had one of the first cooking shows on a Christian radio station, and knew most of the great Christian artists of the day. She learned even more crafts from her friend of over 44 years, Roxanne Barnes. After a successful career in music, Jackie worked for the federal government, with focus on Health and Human Services. For 23 years, Jackie gained honors, awards and promotions for her work. In the last years of her career, she would sit as subject matter expert behind three of the nine budget presenters to the US Senate Subcommittees.  Jackie helped to shatter many “‘glass ceilings” where women were previously not allowed to have medical training or be executives.

For many years after retirement due to disability, Jackie taught the adults at Arlington Assembly of God and sang at Capitol Baptist. Her teaching was deep and practical: many were amazed at her command of Scripture. As her illness grew, she focused on the healing passages of Scripture. She continued to minister at DaVita with all her nurses and caregivers. Her Collection of Healing Verses is available in the Fellowship Hall of Arlington Assembly of God, or by email: mbdfleming@comcast.net.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 37 years, Judy; his loving children, Tre (35), Diana (34), Brian (32), and Chris (30); and his grandchildren, Taylor (13), Emma (12), Adriana (7), Kennedy (6), Leo (5), Lee (4), Reagan (2), and Lincoln (1 month).

Terry was a proud supporter and treasurer for Friends of Arlington Parks, a volunteer group of private citizens who share an interest in preserving and extending the Arlington, VA public park system. He was also a very proud member of the motorcycle community, devoting the past decade to teaching and maintaining the Motorcycle Rider Training Program at NVCC. His dedication is captured in a message from Esther S. Parantoni, Director of the Design & Implementation Workforce Development Division at Northern Virginia Community College:

"Terry has been with the college for years and we not only came to rely on his expertise and years of knowledge, we also came to love him as part of the NOVA family. We will miss him very much. And we want you to know how much he has set the standard for safety and expertise in our motorcycle program. He worked tirelessly, not only to provide the best program, but because he believed in the program and making a difference in people's lives. His loyally to serving others is exceptional. He would always step in to pick up a class when an instructor cancelled, and he was always there to ensure new instructors were on-boarded into the teaching realm. His loyalty put him through long hours and in all sorts of weather and he never complained. And his loyalty has undoubtedly saved the lives of hundreds of students who learned from him."

Marsha’s perpetual optimistic spirit was contagious and a source of strength and encouragement to all who came in contact with her. In recognition of her tireless volunteer efforts to our community, Marsha was honored as a Boulder Pacesetter in February 2010. Her category was “Quality of Life,” most appropriate. It was said at that ceremony that “Marsha chose to take the extra step, and take the extra time to reach out and help people.” Marsha’s contributions to local non-profits included Safe House, The Childrens Museum, and most recently, the BVSD School Lunch Program and PEN, The Parent Engagement Network. PEN’s mission, as was Marsha’s, is to focus on providing school age parents with information, assistance and resources regarding the health and wellness of their children.

Linda Marsha Moritz was born December 21, 1949. She graduated from George Washington University in 1972. In 1977, she and John married and have lived in Boulder since then.

She is survived by her husband, John, her two favortite boys, Nicholas and Zachary, her parents, Jean and Tuck Huey, her brothers, Mark and Doug, daughter-in-law, Gloria Pohl Moritz, and granddaughter, Xenia, nieces Danielle, Marielle, McCall, Dylan, Jane, Maggie and nephew John.

One of Marsha’s last wishes for all her family and friends is summed up as follows: “In the end people will not remember what you said or even what you did, but how you made them feel.” Marsha had a way and an attitude that made everyone feel included and comfortable, Those blessed with her friendship or acquaintance will miss her radiant smile and the tender mercies of her heart!

Alexandrian Doug Thurman Dies

By James Cullum and Carla Branch
alexandrianews.org

If there is an historic or civic organization in Alexandria that did not benefit from Doug Thurman's talent, it is hard to find. Over the years, he volunteered thousands of hours to such groups as the Alexandria Convention and Visitor's Association, the Alexandria League of Women Voters, Alexandria Republican City Committee, Friends of Carlyle House, the Historic Alexandria Resource Commission, Living Legends of Alexandria, the Old Town Civic Association and St. Paul's Episcopal Church. On Jan. 10, Thurman died after a long illness. He was 60 years old.

“Doug was a wonderful man and an amazing citizen of Alexandria. He was deeply beloved by many,” said Amy Millican, a close friend of Thurman's and a member of St. Paul's.

Stephanie Pace Brown is the president of the Alxeandria Convention and Visitors Association. “Doug Thurman was a thoroughly admirable person. Beyond the substance of his contributions, he was an example of civility and intellect that set a standard for public discourse in Alexandria,” she said.

Thurman, who worked at the National Archives, served four years on the Old Town Civic Association Board, two of those years as vice president. He was a former President of the Alexandria Historical Society, OTCA’s representative to the ACVA, the Friends of Carlyle House Historic Park board and the Historic Alexandria Resources Commission. Thurman was a member of the ARCC and managed a City Council campaign for fellow Ballyshaner Pat Troy. He also made donations to the Athenaeum and to St. Paul’s, most notably to help establish the church’s new head start program for underprivileged children.

“All of us who have served with Doug know him to be an extraordinary gentleman, a tireless volunteer, an advocate for the cause of historic preservation in Alexandria—and a treasured friend,” said longtime friend and civic activist Michael Hobbs. “What has struck me particularly about Doug in those capacities that I have known first-or second-hand of his service, is that his service has never been merely as a 'letterhead' member or 'resume-building' exercise. He has always been one of, if not the most, hard-working and dedicated members of the organization and/or its board.”

"Doug was a tireless advocate for Alexandria's heritage and historic sites. I was honored to also consider him a friend. His untimely passing is a great loss to our community," said Lance Mallamo, Director of the Office of Historic Alexandria.

From Lisa Grinnell on February 14th, 2019
Doug was kind, funny, adventuresome. I remember his enthusiasm our senior year about a new musician he insisted another friend and I accompany him to see. I was a Beatles and Motown fan, never heard of the guy he was raving about. There we were in an intimate setting watching Jimmy Hendrix a few feet away performing on his lone electric guitar in the Hilton Hotel ballroom. Reading Doug’s obituary, I am not surprised to hear of his dedicated, hands-on approach to civic service and leadership. I am sad he died so soon and will always remember his generous spirit.

Although I haven't seen Tim in many years, I believe "gentle soul" would describe him totally. He had the softest, sweetest laugh of anyone I've ever met and when he shook his head and said, "I don't care" it was never in the sarcastic cultural way we think of now. It Just meant that he took people and their life stories at face value. He wasn't looking at the "excuse" or "reason" he was looking purely at the person and what kind of human being they were. There was no judgement there. He was such a wonderful person.

HUDSON FALLS --- Linda A. “Meema” Brill, 61, of Oak St., Hudson Falls, passed away Tuesday afternoon, May 22, 2012 at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born Oct. 21, 1950 in Washington D.C., she was the daughter of the late John L. and Lorraine M. (Reice) Hardesty.

Meema graduated from St. Cecilia's Academy, Class of 1969. She worked for Adirondack Pediatrics and Orthopedic Associates of Saratoga. 

More recently, Meema was a very active member of Seventh-day Adventist Church of both Kingsbury and North Creek, where she made a lot of good friends. Anyone who ever met this woman will tell you she was very special. She had a way about her that was so welcoming and warming, and was loved by so so many.

She cherished every minute spent with her dog, Luke, who was much more than just a pet to her.

In addition to her parents, Meema was predeceased by few, and survived by many loving siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews.

Survivors include her three children: Dennis J. Brill and his wife, Laura, of Fort Ann, Amy J. Crowley of Derry, New Hampshire, and Kelly N. Koone and her husband, Curtis, who Linda really considered a son, of Queensbury; seven grandchildren: Joseph C. Koone-17, Jordan C. Koone-16, Mickey C. Koone-12, Kersten A. Crowley-13, Caleb Rich-15, Noah Rich-9, and Allie Wright-3; Meema’s former spouse and father of her children, Dennis E. Brill; and her beloved canine companion, Luke.

Meema wanted to be remembered with this wonderful saying: "I loved my family more than anything in the world. My children and grandchildren gave me a reason to live when life became difficult. If I offended anyone along the path of my life or was a disappointment to family or friends in any way I hope that I will be remembered with forgiveness and love." "Most of all I want to be reunited with all those I have loved when Gods promise of salvation and eternal bliss is realized"

Fauquier Loses a Leader

Board Colleagues Mourn Lambelet

 

By Karin Brulliard
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, December 30, 2004; Page LZ01

 

Fauquier County School Board members marveled at Chairman Bronwyn H. Lambelet's ability to whip out PowerPoint presentations practically with her eyes shut, even though she was a few decades older than most tech whizzes. Now Lambelet's colleagues are reeling at the news that she died of a heart attack on Christmas day at the age of 53 -- decades too young, they say.

"Shock is an understatement," said J. David Martin, Fauquier school superintendent.


BRONWYN LAMBELET

The School Board is now missing a dedicated leader, a quick wit, in Martin's words, a "master communicator." Lambelet had been chairman of the board for four of the past five years, in a county where four of her five children are still students.

Over the next six weeks, Martin said, the board will appoint a resident from Lambelet's Marshall District to take her place. The School Board will then petition in Fauquier County Circuit Court to hold a special election in November so voters can choose someone to fill the seat until 2007, when Lambelet's term would have expired.

Since she was first elected to the board in 1999, Lambelet oversaw School Board responses to rapid growth in the student population, which is increasing about 2 percent a year and recently topped 10,000. During Lambelet's tenure, the board directed the construction of Brumfield Elementary and Auburn Middle schools. Recently, Lambelet spearheaded the board's push for a bond referendum to build the county's third high school.

Lambelet, who was known as "Broni," helped board members forge a tight union even as they debated difficult and sometimes contentious issues, said board member Ernest L. Gray Jr. (Lee). And although she was a staunch supporter of the district, its teachers and its children, Lambelet was never afraid to point out flaws in the system, even if her views were unpopular, Gray said.

"If she was on the losing side of a vote, she picked it up as the will of the board and went forward with it as if it had been her own," he said.

Lambelet also served as the board's "institutional memory" -- she could recall discussions at meetings that took place years ago and quickly dig up the minutes, said board member Susan Murray (Center).

Lambelet, an Arlington native and 25-year resident of Fauquier County, was dedicated to children and education, colleagues and family members said. Before being elected to the School Board, she served for several years on the board's special education advisory committee and helped direct several community theater projects.

Lambelet was also director of marketing and administration for Learning Tree Farms, a school field trip destination on 2,000 acres in Delaplane, where children learn about natural habitats and local history.

When she was not at work, Lambelet devoted time to her five children -- one is a graduate of Fauquier High School and four are still students in the district -- and her garden, said her husband, David.

His wife, Lambelet said, had "an uncanny and sometimes infuriating tendency to be right." But most of all, he and others who knew her said, she will be remembered for her warmth and caring.

"She knew everybody as a person," Martin said. "That was very important to her to know about them. And then everything else was just on top of that."

Her bonds with others could weather major changes: Lambelet remained close to her son Michael's ex-wife, Stephanie Rathbun, who answered the telephone at the Lambelets' Orlean home Tuesday. Rathbun, like Michael a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, said that she was recently stationed in Hawaii and that Lambelet was planning to visit her.

"She took me into the family," Rathbun said. "She was an amazing woman."

From Don Clemenceau on January 1st, 2019
I do not think anyone will remember my sister. Our family relocated to Arlington VA after Diann became ill. She was a sophomore in Pinellas Park, Fl when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1966. Diann had brain surgery to remove the tumor but because of the location of the tumor the doctors could not remove it and we were told that Diann had only two years to live. To be closer to family we moved to Virginia once Diann was able to travel. Thinking about it is amazing Diann flourished in life as well as she did. Cobalt (radiation) was not very advanced in 1966 but I guess it was enough to kill the brain tumor. The radiation is also what led to felling health,  May of 2008 Diann started getting minor strokes; she Diann has listed as Washington-Lee class of 1969 but she was home schooled. The family attended her graduation ceremony in the gymnasiums but Diann never walked up to receive her diploma, she got overheated and scared and left before her name was called. Diann's home room teacher was Mr. Armstrong. I remember that because he was also my geometry teacher. Diann was never married nor did she have children. She lived with my parents until their death and then with me for a short period. She lived in Grace Living Center in Bethany, Oklahoma from August 2000 until her death. Diann did very well there spending her days doing crafts, oil painting, word search magazines and kept me broke buying magazines and books.

It is with the saddest and heaviest of hearts that we announce the death of Jimmy Nalls, longtime Nashville resident and one of rock and blues greatest guitarists.  He died as a result of complications from his valiant 22-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease and multiple injuries sustained in a fall at his home on Thursday, June 22, 2017.

From Bill Wilber on January 1st, 2019
Mr. Nalls’ incredible run as a world-class guitarist began in 1970, when he moved from the suburbs of his home in Arlington, Virginia, to New York City to play with Australian folk singer Gary Shearston and Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary. Mr. Nalls quickly became an in-demand session guitarist at New York’s famed Record Plant studio, and played with several musicians and bands with ties to then up-and-coming Capricorn Records in Macon, Georgia. As a result, Mr. Nalls moved to Macon in 1976 and joined three musicians who’d just parted ways with the Allman Brothers Band – keyboardist Chuck Leavell, bassist Lamar Williams and drummer Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson. Together, the four musicians formed the jazz-rock supergroup Sea Level, and over a six-year period recorded five highly-acclaimed and influential albums and toured the world non-stop, building a loyal following that still exists today. After Sea Level, Mr. Nalls continued his distinguished career by playing guitar with a who’s who of bands and musicians, including Dr. JohnGregg AllmanBill Anderson, The Nighthawks, T. Graham BrownDon McLeanJack PearsonLee Roy Parnell, Lloyd Price, Charly McLain, among many others. Despite being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1995, Mr. Nalls recorded and finished his first solo record, Ain’t No Stranger, in 1999 – earning him high praise and critical acclaim from both the media and his peers. He toured sporadically, but his struggles from Parkinson’s began to affect his everyday life. Despite these challenges, Mr. Nalls and longtime friend and collaborator, blues artist Dave Duncan, began to write and record music for his second solo record. But though he tried to work through the hindrances posed by the continued onset of Parkinson’s, Mr. Nalls ultimately was unable to finish the record, and all of the songs remained in various stages of completion on his home studio’s computer hard drive until 2014. 

In late 2014, Mr. Nalls shared his unfinished songs with good friend, Gabriel Hernandez, owner of Nashville’s Blues Vintage Guitars, Inc., who in turn brought the songs to their mutual friend and longtime Nashville luthier, Joe Glaser. After listening to the unfinished songs, Mr. Hernandez and Mr. Glaser hatched a plan to move forward and complete Mr. Nalls unfinished second record using their mutual musical connections and friends. On that day in late 2014, The Jimmy Nalls Project – a collection of new songs now available at https://www.jimmynallsproject.com/ – was born. The songs are the product of nearly three years of collaborative efforts between Mr. Nalls’ closest friends and some of Nashville’s – and the world’s – finest musicians, engineers and producers. Many are winners of multiple Grammys and other awards, and all freely donated their time and talents to the project. As such, 100 percent of the proceeds from the The Jimmy Nalls Project will go directly to his immediate family, and will be used to help pay off his long-outstanding medical bills, and help offset the costs of his funeral and memorial services. The new music is available worldwide RIGHT NOW via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and many other platforms. You can also buy the music directly at https://www.jimmynallsproject.com/. The all-star lineup for this incredible musical alliance includes Joe BonamassaLarry CarltonRobben Ford MusicWarren Haynes, Jack Pearson, Dave Duncan, Johnny HilandChuck LeavellBrad WhitfordJD SimoJimmy HallBuddy GreeneDave PomeroyKenny GreenbergCharles Chopper AndersonWes Little, and Brian Allen. Other award-winning producers, engineers, musicians and friends who also lent their time and skills include Ray KennedyGary Nicholson, Lee Roy Parnell, Guthrie TrappRick WheelerBrent Maher, Tom Freitag, Zack DeWall, Gordie Johnson, Jacob Sciba, Gary Belz (The House of Blues), Gabriel Hernandez (Blues Vintage Guitars, Inc.), Joshua Rawlings and Joe Glaser.

“Gabriel Hernandez came to me with several of Jimmy’s unfinished songs, and we made the decision to reach out to some of mine and Jimmy’s close friends to help finish the record,” said Joe Glaser, owner of Nashville’s Glaser Instruments, and Mr. Nall’s longtime personal friend. “Jimmy and his family were struggling every day, and unless you’re in their shoes you really have no idea what it’s like. We have witnessed it firsthand for a long time, so when we presented everyone with this opportunity to help finish this record, all of them jumped at the chance to do it. Everyone wanted to help.” The Jimmy Nalls Project – unheard, original music regrettably shelved nearly 16 years earlier by Mr. Nalls due to complications and symptoms from his battle with Parkinson’s – was finally released on June 19, 2017, a mere three days before his untimely death. 

From the beginning, the idea was to retain the spirit of Mr. Nalls’ original recordings. It was the guest artists’ option to complete their respective tracks in whatever styles deemed appropriate. While a few artists made their contributions remotely, many added their parts in some of Nashville’s world-renowned studios that offered free time to help complete the project, most notably The House of Blues. “Having some of it recorded here in Nashville gave us the opportunity for Jimmy to be present, grinning from his wheelchair – something that helped reinvigorate his self-esteem,” Mr. Hernandez said. “Nothing was as rewarding as seeing the smile on his face as he spent time in the studios, lending a helping hand where and when he could, and watching his friends and former colleagues come together to help him finish his long-awaited second solo effort.” All of the artists were fully aware of the history and current challenges facing Mr. Nalls and his family. Even more importantly, they’ve all realized just how lucky they are to do what they love – which is to make and play music. “We did this for our brother Jimmy Nalls, but really for all of us, too” said Chuck Leavell, The Rolling Stones’ long time keyboard player and bandleader. “We’re all did it with the hope his fans will enjoy the music, but also to give them an opportunity to support an important cause.” 

Mr. Nalls – born James Albert Nalls III on May 31, 1951 – is survived by Patricia Diane “Minni” Nalls, his devoted wife of 38 years; their two children, Jennifer Amanda Greer and her husband John Milton Greer, and James “Buddy” Albert Nalls IV and his fiancé Sabreena Inta; his brother Jeff Nalls and sister Jo Lynn Nalls Hendrickson; and his three grandchildren Amanda Laine Manso, Robert Tyler Manso and Nathan James Manso.

After high school he attended the University of Virginia and received a baccalaureate in religious studies for which he felt quite proud, considering the times and the hitchhiking and Yosemite and the Hell’s Angel party, and boxcar rides through the desert, the list goes on.  Having survived, he went to work with the crew building the metro and thereafter learned the trade and the craft that sustained him throughout his working years. The quality of his work was extremely important to him and his projects can be seen throughout many prominent houses in the metro area and in his own residence which he built in the wilds of Prince William county. He lived there until the end with a good woman, and the good company of many lifelong friends, including his reprobate Irish terriers, and his beloved daughter Jessie.  He was a passionate collector, excelled in games of skill and chance, a merry prankster, a rebel.  And always, there was the music.   Above all, Jamie had the gift of clarity which brought success in all he attempted: whether in work or play, he made things happen.   He was the genuine article and hearts broke wide open the day he died. However painful, it is comforting to know nevertheless that James Nash is ‘Still At Large’.

Obituary

Hubert K. O'Bannon was known to everyone as Obie. And it often seemed as if everyone knew Obie. He was that kind of guy. He loved people and they loved him. He never forgot a name or a face. He was almost always the tallest person in the room, so he was hard to miss. And no matter the reason for a particular gathering or event, he made it better. He made people happy. His beloved wife Ellen recently noted that if a person had to go someplace they didn't want to go and do something they didn't want to do, they could have no better companion than Obie. She was, of course, right. Obie was born on July 26, 1951 in Washington, DC and grew up in Arlington, VA. He graduated from Pomona College in Claremont, CA in 1974 and returned to DC where he found employment on Capitol Hill before beginning his railroad career with the Penn Central where he worked on legislative issues surrounding the reorganization of seven bankrupt northeastern railroads into the congressionally-mandated Consolidated Rail Corporation, or Conrail. Obie spent the remainder of his railroad career at the Association of American Railroads, retiring in 2011 as senior vice president of government affairs. Throughout his railroad career, he worked on numerous landmark pieces of legislation, many still positively affecting the industry. Obie loved golf. He was an accomplished player who recorded a lot of rounds at the Chevy Chase Club and at the Ford Plantation in Georgia. In addition to playing a lot of golf, he constantly thought about the game, read about the game and watched a lot of it on television. It was not unusual to find Obie on the couch, intently watching the rerun of a tournament from Malaysia or Spain. And he was funny. He loved to laugh and had the rare ability to guffaw loudly at his own jokes. Obie was not above reciting a joke's punch line an additional time or two for added effect. He was a great friend and a dedicated and proud family man. Obie is survived by Ellen, the light of his life and wife of 40 years; their daughter Blakley Burton of Chicago; their son Philip O'Bannon (Ashley) of New York; two precious grandchildren, Beckett and Tori Burton; and two sisters, Dona O'Bannon of Bethesda, MD and Marsha O'Bannon of San Francisco. Obie died peacefully on Saturday, February 10, 2018 after a heroic battle with gastric cancer. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, February 16 at Christ Church, Georgetown. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastrointestinal Cancer at Georgetown Comprehensive Cancer Center.He was a great friend and a dedicated and proud family man. Obie is survived by Ellen, the light of his life and wife of 40 years; their daughter Blakley Burton of Chicago; their son Philip O'Bannon (Ashley) of New York; two precious grandchildren, Beckett and Tori Burton; and two sisters, Dona O'Bannon of Bethesda, MD and Marsha O'Bannon of San Francisco.

From Bill Wilber on January 1st, 2019
Most of us remember Obie as being a good friend; but, many of us also remember his great sense of humor. I'll never forget the time we got pulled over on Lorcom Lane one fall evening after visiting the Blarney Stone near Dupont Circle.. As i recall, there were probably 5 or 6 of us, including Obie --slightly enebriated and crammed into Dean Mimm's gray volkswagon with the sunroof. We might have attracted attention because one of us was standing up with half a torso extended out the sunroof as the car was flying along--i don't remember. But, when the car stopped and we were finally all out of the car, t the cop laughed and asked: "What is this a Clown Mobile? "-- which obviously stuck as the nickname for Dean's car. He then asked if we'd been drinking; At which point Obie responded: "No Sir, I play basketball for Mo Levin"
