So sorry for your loss. Truly an amazing person he was and now he rests easy and watches you from above. It was an honor and privilege meeting him on several different occasions and knowing him for his jokes that were authentic and funny. May he rest in peace.

It is our deepest sympathies and condolences to Char, Debbie , Christian and Melissa as well as the whole Family. Orrin has been such a dear friend for more than 30 plus years and always was there whenever anyone needed anything. His love of Fishing as well as his Outdoor Writing for many publications will be etched in time forever. His Outdoor Communcations and Outdoor Radio Show for decades touched many and will be dearly missed. Our deep friendship with Orrin and Char as well as the family is something that will always be close to our heart. Orrin, REST IN PEACE Dear Friend, you have lived a full life, and proud to call you my dear friend. Until we meet again. Much Love !

We are so very sorry to hear of your loss. Growing up in Buffalo Grove with Stephanie and Melissa, I always enjoyed the razzing I received from Mr. Brand. Such a funny man who you could tell, loved his girls. I hope everyone can remember all the good times and keep him in your hearts always. May his memory be a blessing to all who loved him.

All our love,

Beth (BHB) and The Mark Family
