It is with great sadness that we announce that Orville Delbert Judd of Kamloops ‘kicked the bucket,’ as he wanted it called, on Feb 23, 2019, at the age of 78.
He is lovingly remembered by his daughters Kelly Hartt (Ken) and Naomi Eisler (Swain), his brother Richard Judd (Vicky) of Montana and a host of loving friends. He was predeceased by his wife, Sylvia Judd and his sister Virginia Jennison.
Born March 13, 1940 in Ladysmith, Wis., Orville moved from the United States to Canada with his family in his late teens. He lived in the Chilcotin region, moving to Northern B.C. after his marriage to Sylvia in 1966. They settled in 1984 in the Barriere/Kamloops region where they remained until their passing.
Known for his laughter and his storytelling, Orville enjoyed gardening, huckleberry picking, and spending time with friends and family.
Orville spent his final years as a resident of Gemstone Care Facility, where his laughter could be heard down the hall. The family wishes to express gratitude to all the caretakers and nurses on Floor 3 Quartz for all their care and attention.
A memorial for Orville will be held on March 23, at the Barriere Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1E1 Hanson Road, Barriere at 2 p.m.
In lieu flowers, please make donations in memory of Orville Judd to Diabetes Canada.
