Orville Holder, age 61 of Casper passed away on Tuesday, August 22, 2023.
Orville was born in 1961 to Margaret and Jay, but also knew Denni, Jay’s wife of 32 years, as mom. He
went to Natrona County High School and received his GED in 1995. After he left school, he joined the
Army National Guard in 1979 and received the qualification badges for both M\16 and handguns. His
training was in masonry and carpentry, and he used these skills throughout his life. He started his truck
driving career and obtained many endorsements he was extremely proud of. He was very passionate
about driving and when he saw other truckers not obeying the law, he referred to them as ‘steering
wheel holders’. His last job was with Knife River Materials as the Scale Master. He became passionate
about this role as well not only because it was centered around trucking, but the way the company
values its employees.
Orville is survived by his loving wife Tonya, his moms Denni and Margaret, his sons Jacob and Chris, and
the numerous kids he was a bonus dad to. His two sisters Tammy, Thenda, and many nieces, nephews,
and grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his sisters Terry and Janice, his brother Joe, and his
Services will be held at the Oregon Trail Veteran’s Cemetery Chapel on August 31st at 1:00 p.m. with
interment held in the cemetery. The celebration of his life will be held at the Hope Center located at 441
S. Center after the interment.
