Orlin came in to Butler Machinery and ordered parts from time to time from me. I enjoyed his company every time I seen him walk through the door. I found a sticky note with his shaky handwriting on it that he left with me today and thought of him. I was informed of his passing by a fellow coworker and felt as though I lost a friend, even though I'd only met him a handful of times. He was a very interesting man with a work ethic and soft caring heart that anyone could see from a mile away. I know he is resting at peace with the Lord and I'm honored to have known him for the short time I did. Jacob Hanson

My deepest sympathy Brian, Brad, Bob, Rick, Joy & Roy and your families. Your dad was such a wonderful man, who was so proud and committed to all of you. I'll always remember our visits, as well as his enthusiasm and keen knowledge of so many things. I think he and Chris are already tossing that ball around up there. God Bless You All.
