Donald “Don” Orman, 89, passed away Wednesday, June 15, 2022 at St. Vincent Hospital. He was born on September 7, 1932 in Owen County, Indiana and was a graduate of Linton-Stockton High School.

Don volunteered for the Air Force at the ripe old age of 20, where he quickly learned he did not enjoy being bossed around. He served for 20 years, happily retiring and advancing only when forced. Don then worked another 25 years for H&R block, where he flourished telling people what to do and working with numbers.

He married his beloved wife Lou Ann, an elementary teacher, almost 69 years ago, with whom he traveled the world with. They met and married within a few short months and Don would tell anyone who would listen that he found himself an “older woman”. Don and Lou Ann were stationed all over the world and famously took trains to foreign countries for fun. Their zest for life was infectious to all who knew them and Don had a sense of humor that was famous in their circles of friends; check your spam folder for his salacious emails.

Don leaves behind his wife, his children Kevin and Kathy; his chosen children Cheryl and Glen, and his grandchildren Shae, Kasey, Rylee and Jessica as well as numerous great-grandchildren and extended family. He was preceded in life by his two beloved dogs, Monet and Metso. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
