David Brian o'dell a.k.a. Odeezy, was probably considered one of the most like able funny people I have ever been acquainted with, we were very close friends as he was with many. He was always able to make everyone laugh with his constant jokes that he somehow could bring everyone together with!!! I will never forget the times we had together from way back in the day riding around in is jeep beating the windows out with his subs to driving up to raleigh to see his dad for a weekend doing 100 mph the whole way there, to just seeing him right before him and his beautiful girlfriend Meagan moved to Florida. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers deeZy as well as your family, I know this is hard but you will all get thru it because Brian is up there right now joking and laughing with Jesus probably pulling pranks on him crazy kid. We all love and miss you Brian Odell and we shall meet again I promise!!! R.I.P. and keep makin those sick beats you always made ! Meagan stay strong ill try to see you as soon as I can! Love always Andy Smelik !!!! P.S. - I will carry on your great personality and lovingness

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family. Brian is a sweet boy who was always so polite and friendly. He will be so deeply missed by all who knew him. There aren't enough words that can express my sympathy for his family, especially for Katherine his mom being a mother myself of a 22 year old son my heart aches for you. My deepest sympathy to all his family and also his beautiful love Megan who you could just tell whenever he looked at her you could see his love shine thru. God Bless you all, Kim and family.

It is so hard to say goodbye to such a young man with so much potential.Our hearts break to think of what he has battled after losing his dad too soon. They were best friends as well as father and son. We have experienced so much loss the last few years, this is just the very worst. We find comfort in knowing he is reunited with David and others that love him so much. I pray for Katheryn and Rick that did all they could have done to keep him safe...well now he is. Amen.

Brian always made me laugh, I will miss him and his ability to light up a room. There are very few people I have met in my life that had his gift... to make people smile. My thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and his friends that all loved him dearly. This tragic loss weighs heavy on all our hearts.

Words still can describe how much everyone will miss you. Odeezy you were always having fun and making everyone laugh but at the same time helping more than you know. There were times you gave advice to me and I'm sure others as well! Brian just know that you fulfilled your needs here and that's why god called you home. Rest in peace brother

To Kathryn, Rick and family, Please know how much my prayers are with you at this time. Whenever I saw Brian, he was a true joy to speak with and to tease as I was always visiting to see his Mom. No words can help to ease your loss, but, find comfort in our Lord. He will light your path in the dark and certainly know that prayers are with you. Kathryn, I am here for you, my friend.
