Fr. O’Neill entered the Obates of St. Francis de Sales in 1932 just after graduating from Salesianum School. Throughout his career, Fr.

Father was also the football coach and athletic director at Salesianum School from 1943 to 1956.
In 1945, he introduced High School Night Football to the State of Delaware. In 1955, Fr. Buzz was chosen Delaware Coach of the Year, and, in 1982, he was elected to the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame. Perhaps his closest friend and fellow Salesianum coach, the late Fr. John L. Birkenheuer, OSFS, once said of him, “The locker room was his pulpit; Rockford Tower, his church; the ball field, his parish. Every play, every practice, every game taught a lesson; faith, sincerity, love of family, respect for authority, patriotism, courage, fidelity, strength in trials, idealism, prudence, confidence in God, and many, many more. Young men did more than merely learn how to play football under Fr. Buzz – more importantly, they learned how to win the game of life.”
Fr. O’Neill is survived by his niece, Kathryn Fisher, and his nephews, Joseph and Vincent O’Neill; six grandnieces and a great grand nephew.
Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 9th and Dupont Streets, Wilmington, on Wednesday morning at 10:30 am, where friends may call from 9 am to 10:15 am.
