In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brothers, Edward Mace, Brian Mace and Robert Bay White.
To honor Orson’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral.
Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Mount Morris, Pa., with Pastor Dan Meadows officiating. The family would then like to invite friends to join them for a time of remembrance at the Brookhaven Community Center from 2-6 p.m.
