One of the finest men who ever walked this earth. Some of my best childhood memories are hanging out and playing pool with Ora. He pretty much let the kids play pool in his basement at any time. I remember one time he gave me the key to his basement when he went on vacation. There is not many people who would do that! Love you Big O, and will never forget you.
