Thank you for your service, sir. Rest In Peace.
I only met Chief Orkies one time and he was one of the nicest people I've ever met. I felt like we had known each other forever. My God be with your family.
I am deeply sorry to learn of Rob Orkies death. He was a blessing to the community and gave of himself always and without concern for himself. He will be missed terribly. I will pray for his family and keep them there during this tough time as I am sure they will miss him so much. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.
Zoneton Fire and the surrounding fire service family are better for having Rob in it. He understood the importance of building relationships along with achievement. I am glad to call him Friend.
Thank you for your courage and service, Chief Orkies. May The Lord hold your family and friends in the palm of his hand. God speed.
The passing of Chief Orkies hits out public safety family hard. The years of his devoted service leaves a legacy etched upon the hearts of all of us who are privileged to have served with him. Chief Orkies “well done good and faithful servant. Enter now into the joy of our Heavenly Father”. We hold his family, his friends and the Zoneton Fire family in our prayers.
