ORTH, James Wallace "Wally" - 1939 - 2014. It is with heavy hearts the family of Wally Orth announces his passing on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at Woodstock Hospital with his family by his side, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Beloved husband and best friend of Doreen (Patchett) for over 43 years. Cherished father of Tracey Justus (Ryan) and Susan Vuylsteke (Ryan). Devoted grandfather to Ethan and Owen Justus and Remi and Nora Vuylsteke. Special brother-in-law of Brenda Patchett, Marlene Chornie (Nick) and Pamela Orth. Son-in-law of Phyllis Patchett. Predeceased by his parents Russell and Blanche Orth, brother Bill Orth, and father-in-law Dewart Patchett. Wally worked at the Delhi Research Station for 34 years. He was an avid John Deere enthusiast and collector and could often be found driving around Burgessville on his 1937 model "D" John Deere tractor. Over the years, Wally enjoyed camping trips and snowmobiling with family and friends, and taking his antique tractors to many shows. Wally especially liked "shop night" with his John Deere friends. Wally enjoyed many things in life and always found his own unique way of being able to do things. Friends will be received at THE ARN-LOCKIE FUNERAL HOME , 45 Main St. W., Norwich (519) 863-3020 on Thursday 2 - 4 and 7 - 9 p.m. Funeral service to honour Wally's life will be held at the funeral home on Friday, May 23, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. David Snihur officiating. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to Woodstock Hospital Foundation, Norwich and District Historical Society, or charity of your choice.
