Ormand W. Staines, age 91, of Fenwick, passed away on Wednesday night January 15, 2020 at Spectrum Health United Memorial – United Campus in Greenville.
If you had to describe Ormand in two words, friendly and kind would be it, his smile could light up a room and he made friends wherever he went, he never had a negative thing to say and always would see the brighter side of things. He just plain loved people. Another way to describe him was a hard worker. A man who never knew when to quit, Ormand would work all day at Federal Mogul for over 30 years, and then come home and work his farm for another 6-8 hours! He loved to be outside doing all the hard work he could find; cutting wood, raking leaves, mowing the lawn and chasing down any dandelion he could find. He was a John Deere man and never farmed with anything else. Ormand enjoyed golfing, fishing and bowling. He even bowled in a Pro-Am tournament against a professional bowler named Dick Weber, and he won! He never quit talking about it for the whole ride home. Ormand proudly served his country in the Korean war as an Army Medic. He was always good for a joke and loved to make people laugh, he will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Surviving Ormand is his wife of 65 years; Janet Staines, his daughter; Dawn Saladin, his grandchildren; Ellie (Ian) MacDonald, Roxanne (Peter) Faber, Katie (Nick Provo) Saladin, his great grandchildren; Boden, Wyatt, Chase, Ormand, Roman, Lucien, Thelen, and his brother Carlton (Pam) Staines, along with many other extended family and friends.
