Orville was born in
Cardin, Okla. on Dec. 6, 1923, to Laura and Albert Hall. He died
in Broken Arrow, Okla. on July 24, 2012, at the age of 88.
Friends and family knew him as O.C., Cliff, or Cliffie. O.C. had
to make the difficult decision to sell their 80 acre farm in
2011, due to his and Mary Jo's declining health. O.C. was an
electrician at B.F. Goodrich and retired after 30 plus years of
employment. He loved to hunt and fish. One of his biggest
enjoyments was planting a garden and sharing with his neighbors.
O.C. helped many people in his church and neighborhood with
electrical and plumbing issues, never expecting anything in
return. He was a member of Seneca Christian Church and attended
Indian Springs Baptist in Broken Arrow.
Cliff and Mary Jo would have been married 65 years in October.
He was blessed with four children, Lee, Lynn, Kathy, Shelly and
their spouses, Glenda, Pattie, Lerry and Scott. He was loved by
his grandchildren, Dreama, Drenda and Dustin, Geoff, Gerod and
Ami, Kelsey, Briana, Chris and Diana, Stacy and Simon, Josh and
Tracey and Zach. He was a great-grandpa and MaPa to Marshall,
Delayna, Darrah, Ethan, Logan, Carter and Nolan. The children who
have adopted him as their grandpa through the years and whom he
loved are Becky, Sam, Eli, Rachel, Aimee, Drake and Jack. O.C.
had two brothers, Carroll and George, who preceded him in death.
Even though Cliff's physical body was weakened due to his lung
disease and age; his will and determination never wavered. He
told us all how much we meant to him and that he loved us. We
will all miss him too.
