There are so many memories I have of times spent with Orville at Calvary UMC. One of the many was when Orville shared memories of the time that he was in the service. At that point in his life, he believed in God and considered himself a Christian. However, it was those military experiences that showed him how important God and his faith journey were to him. Rest In Peace dear friend. Maggie Lewis
