Orval lived a very long and full life, passing away at the age of 95. He was born
in Woodland, California in 1924. He was raised on the Sievers ranch with his parents,
Otto and Anna Sievers. He was the youngest of the family. He had a half sister, Anona
(Higby) and his sister Dorothy (Orr). He farmed all his life with his dad and later on his
own. He grew up in Dixon and graduated from Dixon High School. He met his future
wife at the Dixon Theater. Her name was Marjorie McFadgen. They married and a home
was built for them on the Sievers ranch. They raised two daughters, Claudia and Lesley.
They were happily married for 22 years.

Among his many interests, he was a 50 year member of the California State
Grange. He was a proud member of the Masonic Lodges and a charter member of Yolo
Shrine Club and Montezuma Shrine Club. He belonged to the Dixon Senior Club and
was a very involved member of the Dixon Historical Society. He was a blood donor with
Bloodsource donating 18 gallons in his lifetime.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his oldest sister, Anona, and his wife
Marjorie. He is survived by his daughters, Claudia Zavala, Lesley Sievers Fong and
Goddaughter Shanna Lyon Gong. He was a grandfather to 3; Marjorie Fong Salo
(Patrick), Roger Clinton Fong (Christine) and Martin Orval Fong (Irene). He was blessed
with 7 great grand children, Joy, Jonah and Jax Salo, Dianna & Christiana Fong and
