Boardman - Christopher F. O'Donnell, 36, of Boardman, died Saturday afternoon, April 24, 2021 at University Hospital in Cleveland, in the loving presence of his parents, sister, and brother. He was born March 21, 1985 in Mineola, NY, a son of Kevin and Mary (Schiffauer) O'Donnell and had lived in this area most of his life.

He was a 2003 graduate of Boardman High School and had earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of Dayton in 2007. For the past five years, he was a banker for Huntington National Bank.

Besides his parents, he leaves his sister, Katie (Nicholas) Muscari; his brother, Kyle (Fiancée Mary) O'Donnell; numerous, loving aunts, uncles and cousins; as well as his cherished nephew and niece, Mason and Maddie Lou Muscari.
