Sorry to see that Uncle Orville has passed. Several memories of times that he was over to see grandma Murl Harris and Mom Pauley. We lost mom, Barbara Ann, as well on September 4, 2018. God bless.

I will alway remember Orville from my days in the Boy Scouts. He taught me a lot about the outdoors and the ways a young man should act. He taught to respect others and to treat everyone the way I would want to be treated. He helped me along with Joe Halstead and Mike his late son optain the rank of Eagle Scout. My prayers for the family in this time sad time. Thanks to his family for letting me share apart of my life with him while I was growing up
