August 16, 1921 - April 1, 2016
Resided in Cincinnati, OH
Orion was born in Cincinnati, OH where he lived his entire life, graduating from Western Hill High School. After serving his country in World War II as Staff Sergeant of Company B of the 405th Infantry Regiment of the 102nd Infantry Division, he was awarded several medals as a testimonial of honest and faithful service to the United States. Upon returning from the War, he received a degree in accounting from the University of Cincinnati. Following graduation, he worked as a CPA and eventually became VP of Finance for Rookwood Oil until his retirement in1981.
Orion was a staunch supporter of University of Cincinnati athletics and was the first lifetime member of the UCats Club. He was a member of Hyde Park Golf & Country Club for 32 years where he served on the Board of Governors, enjoyed the game of golf, grew many lasting friendships, and generated lifelong memories. His golf games at Hyde Park included four holes-in-one and winning the Senior Championship. He and Dorothy maintained their winter home in Sanibel, FL for 40 years where they loved walking on the beach together. Orion enjoyed playing golf at Beachview Golf Club where he also won the Senior Championship. As an avid reader, he especially enjoyed mysteries, sports and World War II history. However, his greatest love was his family. He will be dearly missed.
A private celebration for the immediate family will take place Friday, April 8th at Park View Mausoleum, Rest Haven Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
