Orville passed of natural causes at 89 years 1 month on September 29, 2021. He was residing on Mercer Island, WA. A private family service was held on October 6 at Calgary Cemetary in Seattle.
Orville was born in McIntosh Township, Minnesota to Ole and Gina Mandt. He served as a private in the US Army after high school where he was an engineer at White Sands and Red Sands military bases and worked on US Army rocket programs. After serving in the military he met his beautiful wife of over 50 years, Julie Lenihan in Seattle. They married and settled on Mercer Island with their children, where Orville resided for close to 60 years.
He will be remembered fondly by his family and friends for being a kind, devoted and caring husband and father. Orville made the world a better place and those that knew him are very grateful for his warm heart, smile and sense of humor. He will surely be missed, but he is now with his lifetime partner Julie in warm kind place.
