Michael P. O’Connor of Akron passed away unexpectedly August 8, 2020. He was born to the late William E. (Bucky) and Charlotte F., on September 26, 1946. He grew up in Cuyahoga Falls and lived his life in northeast Ohio. He was a graduate of Borromeo College followed by a career in Catholic education.
Michael loved his family, his Irish ancestry and his music. He was an active member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians. He was past President of the Mark Heffernan Division and AOH Summit County Board. A self taught musician, his love of Irish music was reflected in the music groups “Mike O’Connor & Friends,” “Irene and the Irishmen,” and the last 14 years with “Callahan and O’Connor.”
He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Tim (Buck) and infant Joseph. He is survived by his brother Kevin (Colleen), sisters Kathleen Factor, Maureen (Ed) Brown, Peggy (Terry) McDonald, sister in law Shelly O’Connor and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 11:00 at St. Vincent Church, 164 W. Market St, Akron. Family will receive guests one hour prior at the church. Burial will follow at Oakwood Cemetery, Cuyahoga Falls. Due to COVID-19, masks and social distancing are required.

The family requests no flowers. Should anyone wish, Memorial donations may be made to the William E. (Bucky) O’Connor Family Scholarship in care of The St. Vincent-St. Mary High School Foundation, 15 N. Maple St., Akron, OH 44303.

Jean and I felt so close to Mike that we attended his graduation from Borromeo. I considered Mike a great friend during our years at Camp Christopher. We also enjoyed Mike's Irish Music performances over the years in the Akron Area. He will remain in our hearts. God bless you Mike! Joe and Jean Fahey

Go with God, brother. I'll never forget our friendship. Condolences to the family and his many friends. I heard the news while I was out hiking today. I was able to sit beside a pretty stream and think about all the fun times we had together. I will always remember you playing St. Patrick's Day at Jackie McConnell's and everywhere else. Love you, Mike. I'm sorry I never got to say goodbye.
