September 28, 1944 – June 8, 2020
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Orville at 75 after a long battle with cancer. He passed away peacefully in Olds Alberta Hospital on June 8, 2020.
Orville was born on September 28, 1944. His parents Ella and Ivan Leach raised 9 children. He was married to Carolyn Martodam for 47 wonderful years and raised 6 children and 14 grandchildren.
Orville was a hard working man who never stopped working; even in his spare time he was always working on an old Tractor or Jeep.
Orville was a strong, positive and humorous person, and despite his low vitality at the end, those around him were surprised by his perseverance.
He is predeceased by his father Ivan, father in-law Clarence Martodam and mother in-law Ione Martodam, sister Jeanie and husband Joseph, nephews Kent and Joshua, and brothers in law Lee, Marty, Ted and Ken.
A celebration of Orville’s life will be held on August 21st, 2020, when family and friends can meet and honour his life. Details will be shared closer to the date.
