In from John and Margie Bartley:

It is with great sadness and regret that I send along the news of the passing today of John "Digger" Odell. In a call I received from John Wolf this afternoon, I understand arrangements are being made by the Mueller Parker Funeral Home in Mason, Ohio where the obituary and information regarding services will be posted. Our prayers are with his family and many friends.
