I was very sorry to hear about Orlan's passing.  I will always cherish the
talks we had in the quality lab.  His stories were always interesting, and
were described by someone who really enjoyed life.  Orlan consistently
opened the lab at 6:00 AM, and was a fixture in the lab since I started
working there in 2010, normally working 6 days per week.  A fun dude!  
Heaven will definitely be a cooler place with him flying around in the clouds
up there.
