Orly was honorably discharged at the rank of Staff Sergeant and received a good conduct medal. Orly worked at Kodak Colorado Division from 1972 to 2001, working in a variety of areas from disc film to x-ray film inspection, and retired from there. Orly has always enjoyed music and has sung in many choirs and musical groups. A great joy of his was
singing with a choral group known as “Lutheran Men of Song.” Orly was a faithful Christian and shared his faith freely. He was a soft-spoken, easygoing man who loved people and enjoyed long chats.

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Christopher Femmenino of Greeley, as well as a granddaughter, Thera Femmenino of Greeley; a step-
