    My prayers go out to the family. I will never forget all the early years of all the Idlers good times running Bunker Hill and the great Christmas party’s we had.
    RIP my friend. Glad I got to visit with you last June at the Idlers car show.

    Reed Family, I am so sorry to hear of Orville’s passing. I only heard about this just today. He was my go to man for my lawn mower needs. He was so gracious about helping me following my husband’s passing in 2013. He was such a nice person. God bless you all.
