The loss of a dear friend! I met Orvil in1989, We worked together at Premier Ind. We sweat together, bleed together, and cried together. Work was harder for Orvil because He was heavy man,But he was happy go lucky person, never complained. He had lots of love in his heart for people especially family. He was like a tree planted by the water with strong roots. If you needed him , he was there. Will miss him dearly.
