WITH sadness we mourn the loss
of Francis John O’Donahoo (5
April 1962 – 2 March 2016).
Acknowledged and respected by people
of the Barkly and Central Australia Frank
was born in Bendigo, Victoria with twin
brother Paul youngest children of Arthur
and Valma O’Donahoo.
Francis and twin Paul O’Donahoo have
four siblings, Peter, Michele, Cheryl and
Julie with their mother Valma passing
in 2002 and father Arthur now aged 94
residing in Bendigo.
Frank attended school in Bendigo,
played state baseball and, at 16 with twin
brother Paul, joined the Royal Australian
Navy serving eight years.
He completed a degree in social work
2002 setting up in business for six years
before moving to the Northern Territory
taking a position with the Department
of Health as social worker at Tennant
While working, Frank commenced a
Bachelor of Environmental Health win-
ning a position as Environmental Health
Officer with NT Health based in Tennant
servicing regional communities.
He completed a Bachelor of Science
in 2014 then commenced further studies
toward a Doctorate in Health Sciences
yet confronted by a serious medical di-
agnosis demanding his commitment,
determination and fighting spirit was
sadly denied a PhD. Frank’s life in the
Barkly testifies a formidable professional
and committed Territorian underpinned
by a passion for improving the health
outcomes of disadvantaged people liv-
ing in regional and remote communities.
He challenged the system never shying
Waste management construction in
Elliott, sewerage upgrades for Ampilat-
watja, remote housing accreditation at
Ali Curung or community laundromat
project for Alpurrurulam Frank mentored
workers while overseeing site operations
ensuring environmental health was never
Frank made many friends in the Barkly
with a gregarious nature and wicked
sense of humour while engendering
respect from officials, work colleagues,
stakeholders and community for his
dedication, attention to detail and fearless
commitment often in resistant situations.
I was privileged to be briefed and ad-
vised by Frank on innovative health mat-
ters and opportunities demanding vision
and accountability from all stakeholders.
Frank loved the natural world, Indig-
enous culture and people ably supported
by his devoted partner Nancy Cowan
who when convinced to move north
became another loved and respected
Tennant Creek identity.
He understood the importance of educa-
tion and assisted delivering environmen-
tal health programs in addition to critical
doctoral research studying complex
parasites colonising stagnant water envi-
ronments with devastating consequences
for maternal and early childhood health.
Frank’s energetic and pragmatic field-
work, effective liaison across govern-
ment departments, lobby of political
leaders and targeted scientific research
complimented his professional approach
for making a difference tragically cut
short by his own ill health.
He spent the past two years in Tocum-
wal NSW on his 20-acre property under-
going treatment, planting native trees and
enjoying a serene environment.
With sincere condolences, we honour
service to his country, commitment to
NT health and dedication to improving
the lives of others,
Member for Barkly
