Such a kind and wonderful man. I have so many memories of Uncle Orville when I was growing up, from the amazing fudge he made us kids to the fun fireworks he set off for us over in Elton. He always had a smile and a quick laugh even when we were not exactly being well behaved. I will miss him greatly. To Aunt Carol and the boys, please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love, RaVonna
Prayers for the DeHart family. May your memories help to ease your pain.

You have my deepest condolences in your loss of Orville. By all the previous comments he seemed like an amazing man. His love for music and life in general just shows how we are not meant to die. Death is an enemy to all of us. Our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah will reunite us with our lost loved ones as promised in the Bible Book of Revelation in chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. These scriptures may bring you much comfort.
My condolences to the DeHart family.

Dearest Carol and family. Words can't express how sorry we are to hear of Orville's passing. All we can say is that he is singing and playing his music for Jesus now and what a bountiful sound it must be. He was one of the best of us and will be missed tremendously. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let the perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all of the faithful departed rest in the peace and love of Jesus Christ. Amen. He will never be forgotten.
Love, Dale and Susie (Robinson) Vaughn.
