He was a 1958 Newcomerstown High School graduate. Orval was a U.S. Army Veteran and served during the Cuban Crisis as a Specialist 4. During his time serving, he was deployed to Georgia where President John F. Kennedy came to his location to give encouragement to the troops in case of war. He was honored to see the president in person. He worked at Kurz-Kasch in Newcomerstown for over 43 years and was a member of Christ Methodist Church of Newcomerstown. He enjoyed shooting trap, loved doing genealogy and enjoyed spending time with his family.
