Orville was born to Harold and Jean Sears in 1944 at Matchewan, Northern Ontario, and came to live on his grandfather’s farm in Oxford Township when he was three years old. Orville passed away at the Smiths Falls District Hospital on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at the age of 76 years. His parents and grandparents lived on the farm keeping animals of one kind or another and growing some crops. Orville took up farming as a natural follow up to that environment. He, however, liked pigs and had a fair sized herd of them for many years. During that time he went to the one room school house on Todd School Road in Oxford on Rideau Township and never had time for high school. In January 1977 having gone to see what dance classes were like, he met Jean Thompson, a widow and they immediately became attached and married in August of that year. They were married for 43 years. They lived first in Merrickville and then in a brand new home on Donoghue Road in Oxford Township. Excelling in the landscaping of the property it was quite a showcase. Orville also found he had a great knack for carpentry and made some beautiful pieces of furniture for the house. In 2018 after a series of bad luck with health issues they decided to downsize and moved to Van Horne Seniors Residence in Smiths Falls where they stayed comfortably. Private Service will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Merrickville and burial at Merrickville Union Cemetery at a later date.
