As per his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private interment will be in the spring.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to Diabetes Canada or a charity of your choice.
The family expresses their appreciation to the team at Stonewall Hospital who provided care and comfort in his final days, as well as emergency personnel.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Orville was a wonderful gentleman who I got to know a bit while in the music business. He was a very kind man who I missed seeing when I moved on to work with Warner Music. In my meetings with Orville I remember he was very funny, loved to have a chuckle and I never saw him once without that twinkle in his eye. Regards to the family. Admired him so much. - Posted by: John Jones (Friend and customer.) on: Jan 12, 2020
