"I now live in AZ and visit Seattle usually once a year. I would e-mail Orv and tell him that a bunch of us were meeting for breakfast on Sunday. As much of an effort it was for him to get moving, he usually would show up. I am very glad that this past summer, he was able to join us for breakfast and a nice visit. I am sorry for your loss."
"Elizabeth and John Smith, Isle of Wight, England, UK
We are so sad to read your news. We did not no Orval personally but we have known Felicity for a lifetime and it was Orval who gave her joy again. Thank you.
Our most sincere condolences to all Orval's family and friends,
Elizabeth and John"
"I will miss you - but I will keep the best of you with me forever......"
"I only met Orv 2 or 3 times. I know you will miss him and I am sorry for your loss."
"I will remember Orv as always trying to give me fatherly advice most of it in one ear and out the other, except as I was nearing driving age he told me to always assume that everyone else on the road was an idiot and capable of doing anything.I heed that advice to this very day."
"I will always remember him telling me to go play in the street when I was young. I do not know why this is such a memory, but it is. It was nice weather and we were in Moms back yard and we were all laughing. One of my other memories is when Tom and I went to California to stay with Betty and Orv for part of the summer. He took us to Disneyland, Knoxberry Farm and Pismo Beach. We had a great time. I am so sorry for your loss. Always remember the good times."
"Orv certainly was a very handsome guy. Looking at the 1961 photo of him I realized how much Chris looks like Orv. I know that you will miss your dad/brother. It is very hard to lose a part of your family. The last several times I saw Orv he always talked about how proud he was of Todd and Chris. He was a very proud Dad."
Have a suggestion for us?
