As the former Superintendentof Mammoth Cave National Park, I can say that Orville was one of hardest working, most reliable folks we had in the Maintenance Division. He wore his uniform with pride and always was the one to assist with any job that had to be done. He was a credit to the NationalPark Service and he will be missed. My condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time.

While I did not work with Orville directly at Mammoth Cave National Park and so did not know him well, I can say that his reputation was very well known among the park staff regarding his welding and other work skills, and he was missed following his retirement. His work achievements are all over the park with the different projects he accomplished over many years. My prayers and condolences to the family. May God provide you with comfort during this difficult time.
