William O'Donnell, age 103, passed away peacefully at his daughter's home on April 14, 2016. He was born in Blackwood, NJ on December 14, 1912. He grew up on a farm in Mt. Laurel before moving to Moorestown where he and his wife Agnes raised their five children. Upon retirement, he lived in Pennsauken, NJ for many years before moving in with his daughter Marjorie and her family. William worked for the Department of Agriculture as a Soil Conservation Technician in Burlington County for 30 years. There is no way of knowing how many miles of under drains, ditches, terraces and contours he laid out. He was especially proud of the work he did with county farmers helping to expand the cranberry industry in the state. William was an avid gardener and served on the Shade Tree Commissions in Moorestown and Pennsauken. He is preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Agnes O'Donnell. William is survived by his five children, Marjorie Copeland (Fred), Michael O'Donnell (Lynn), William O'Donnell (Marleen), Tom O'Donnell (Donna), and Mary Arot (Neil).
