Mr. Orian was a humble and warm hearted man. I will never forget the way he treated my little one with so much love, he always wore a smile on his face when he walked in through any door. Best memory I have of him is when he would give my daughter dollars at the gymnastics meets so she can go buy a snack at the snack bar, always so thoughtful and kind. He will always be remembered ❤️

I am Randy’s sister - my brother & Orian were friends since 7th grade - I’ve known Orian for almost 30 years. Orian & my brother use to babysit my daughter - Steph (now 27years old). 1st I want to say Orian gave the BEST hugs - this big ole man would squeeze you to where you would feel his love for you! A memory I wanted to share is at Stephanie’s 2nd birthday (theme Seasame Street) my mom had an Ernie mask made, so we asked Orian to dress as Ernie to surprise the kids & he did - no hesitation - so Orian gets to the park & my daughter looks at him (with mask on ) & within a second she says “that’s Tio Orian!” Orian you were an amazing man & we are blessed to have you part of our lives - my dear friend you will be so missed!!! I love you...

I met Orian when he was 16 yrs old and from that day I knew how fun he was, his smile and hugs are unforgettable, he was one of a kind! We had so many great times together with all of his friends, it was always him, Joey and Randy and some of the best times I had were with them.
I have known Nicole since she was just a teenager also and watched her and everyone grieve when she lost her brother and best friend Joey, we all loved Joey so much and when I found out that Nicole and Orian had grown from being friends to falling in love it was to me a true blessing, you could see how much they loved each other and I always thought Joey had brought them together to be truly happy again.
I can't imagine what Nicole or his family are going through right now because I am still heartbroken that he's gone so soon but I know he's with Joey now and smiling and laughing and he will always be with Nicole and his children and everyone he loved ❤️️
Mine and Doug's and my oldest girls which loved Orian so much are praying for all of you ❤️️ RIP ORIAN
