In Memory of

David Michael O'Hara


July 6, 1935 - September 1, 2015



David Michael O'Hara
July 6th, 1935 – September 1st, 2015

David M. O'Hara, of Orleans, MA, passed unexpectedly on September 1, 2015 at the age of 80. Son of Daniel Francis O'Hara Sr. and Mary Veronica O'Hara, David was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and spent his summers in Breezy Point, NY. David attended parochial schools and graduated from St. Michael's DHS in 1953. David attended Saint Bonaventure University in NY from which he graduated in 1957 Cum Laude with a BA degree in Philosophy, much to the relief of the Monsignor. David then attended Harvard Law School; however he decided that studying the law was not his calling.

David spent many hours on the beach and in the water, working his way up from Lifeguard to Manager at the Silver Gull and Breezy Point Beach Clubs in Breezy Point, NY. David's wanderlust, love for adventure, and general misanthropic disposition inspired him to take positions in management and sales in Denali National Park, Alaska, Chicago, and California. He was a passionate environmentalist and naturalist and was truly moved by the power and vastness of nature.

David returned to New York to be closer to his family, smog, and his bride to be: Clare H. Terhune, also of Brooklyn, NY. David said his life truly changed when he met his bride Clare. After a long courtship and a promise of adventure the two were married on February 21, 1970. David settled into a career as a bond broker in Manhattan, working for Cowen & Co. and Mabon Nugent & Co. While working in finance, David took positions in San Francisco, Manhattan, and finally in London where he opened the UK branch of MKI Securities and turned it into a successful venture. He and his family lived in London for several years while spending their summers in Chatham, MA and traveling. David and Clare made Cape Cod their permanent residence when David retired. David loved his family dearly and was devoted to his wife of 41 years. David was devastated by Clare's passing in 2011.

David is known and remembered for his love of laughter, travel, adventure, lively discourse, Literature, Latin, Philosophy, sports cars, excess, the great outdoors, his acerbic sense of humor, political rants, hatred of Boston sports teams, general curmudgeonous, and overall command presence. Above all, David was a devoted husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. His absence will be truly felt by all who knew and loved him.

David is survived by his loving daughters Rachel O'Hara of Brewster and Katie O'Hara of Barnstable; his siblings Patricia Paul Cyril of Brooklyn, NY, Daniel F. O'Hara Jr. of Bluffton, SC, and Paul J. O'Hara of Colorado Springs, CO; as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, and godchildren.

A Memorial Service will be held at 1 PM on September 13th at Saint Christopher's Church in Chatham, MA. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, at the family's request, please make a donation in David's name to the Sierra Club Foundation at  And here is Clare's obit:Clare H. O'Hara died peacefully on Friday, November 4, 2011 surrounded by her family at the McCarthy Care Center in Sandwich.
Born in Brooklyn, NY in 1945, Clare attended Parochial school, St. Catherine's College and the University of Kentucky where she studied Fine Arts and Education. Clare spent her early career as a teacher in Brooklyn prior to becoming a full time mother; then dedicating her time to her children and their education. Her interest in charitable work began during her time in London. Upon her return to the US, Clare worked tirelessly in Development for several Cape Cod non-profits including the Homeless Prevention Council where she ended her career. Over the course of her 22 years on Cape Cod, Clare served on the Board of Directors of the Cape Cod Women's Organization and the Friends of Monomoy Theatre. Clare also served on the Board of Directors of the Cape Cod Community Media Center where she produced numerous television programs, including the Women Creating series which she co-produced and was awarded a Lifetime Television award. She was active in her church and her community, served as Secretary of Stage Harbor Yacht Club and was a former member of the Vestry at St. Christopher's. 
Respected by all and loved by many, Clare was passionate about life and cherished her family, many friends and colleagues. Ever the optimist, she cheered, encouraged and comforted those around her. Unfailingly kind and caring, Clare lived her life with dignity and grace and met her death in similar fashion.
Clare will be greatly missed and forever remembered. She is survived by her husband David, daughters Rachel and Katherine, sister Doranne, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins all of whom loved her dearly.
A memorial service will be held at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church in Chatham, MA on Saturday, November 19, 2011 at Noon; reception to follow in the Parish Hall.

vThis is for those of us who I know have lost love ones in the past few years. -- No, this is for all of us !!


No matter how we try to stop it in a moment that we cherish,

No matter how we try to catch a day before it fades away,

Life goes on.

God made it that way so we wouldn’t linger,

In a pleasant time that is no more.

We have more to see, more to do. I have to be me, and cannot boo-hoo.

Even though I may not know what is in store for me

God knows and will make it be.

I take comfort in that I am being led by the Most Holy Spirit and being fed.

I won’t allow this to be stolen from me

For I say to the Evil One, I will not pay your fee!

Life goes on.

Thank you Lord for being there for me;

Giving me the strength that I can now see.

Not as clearly as I would have liked. Please, Lord, all I’m trying to say

Is that I will not give up the fight

To remember him as you would have me do;

And go on with his blessing and Yours, too.

Yes, Life Goes On.

And I would not have it any other way,

Because of Your Love for me in the sway.

Oh, rain upon me Lord, and Reign upon me again

The sweet blessings of Your Protection

Even when You do it without my detection.

I have to say, “I love You Lord, I love You, and I love You !!

Life goes on.

On March 7, 2014 Dr. Paul Edelman, husband of Joan (Malerba) Edelman died from complications of a stroke he experienced one week earlier. I am so sorry to have to relay this. Those of you that attended our 50 yr reunion met him. Dr. Paul and Joani were married for 32 years. More details shall follow as I receive them.


For those of you who knew my best friend, significant other:

Jim Phillips


This is not a poem or a prayer,
Just something I would like to share.
I knew a man that had a way,
What it was I cannot say.
He was kind and sweet,
Stong and tough,
But never rough;
The kind you'd be glad to meet.
Full of integrity,
He exuded dignity.
Pleasent to the eye,
He was called on high.
In this life and in the next,
He can always say he did his best.
Feeding people with food and thought,
He shared of himself things that could not be bought.
I will always remember what he gave to me,
And hope and pray, I may come close to knowing his way.
He was my best friend, companion, and more,
Truly special down to the core.
What he imparted will never be lost.
In my mind's eye, I will always love him, no matter what the cost.
A man of the West was he, a Spirit to the world he'll always be.
--Barbara Ecker



I'm sorry to have to say that
