I did have the opportunity to meet him and he was a fantastic guy.  His passing is a great loss to the world and the hobby.

VERY sad news!  I had a number of conversations with Orv over the years, but never was able to meet him.  A great person who will be missed.

It is with great sadness that I just learned that Orv Olm, owner of Gizmo Geezer and a good friend passed away. Orv had been suffering from a years long battle with cancer that finally overwhelmed that great heart of his. Orv was one of those people that make you glad to be alive as he was such an enthusiastic and warm person. The world will be smaller place with his loss. Sympathy cards or notes to his wife, Marci, can be sent to the business address of Gizmo Geezer:   45 Kirk Crescent, Saskatoon, SK Canada S7H 3B1

Marci's email is as follows:
Sad news today, Orv died last evening. We were so sorry that his daughter Mel was unable to arrive in time to see him, but he was tired and ready.

I’m sorry this may be the first you were aware of Orv’s struggles the last five weeks, and actually since Christmas, among them the continued inability to diagnose exactly what was going on, there were so many things hurting. Finally, they determined that the blood problems were most likely caused by the cancer being malignant. In a second scan/biopsy of his lung on Monday they then determined that his lung was a secondary site for the cancer. The doctors scheduled a PET scan to determine the origin of the cancer, but Orv and I declined. He, we, had had enough.

Look for him in a thermal.

Please pass this note along to those whom I’ve missed.
Best regards,
Ms. Giz
