Blessings of strength to the Roper.family during this time of loss. I met Orrins son Jason when I moved to 1997. Jason and I & his family have been close ever since. I consider his family my own. I'll miss Orrins dry sense of humor and his story telling. My heart is with you all always

I worked with "Rope" for several years at FMC. He as always a person committed to his family, thought his wife was the world and worked hard. My thoughts are with you. Steve Hickerson
