I first met Oren when Penny and him would come
to Tiffin to celebrate The birthday of one of Penny's grandchildren Trace and Colin. Shantelle and Aaron were their parents and i am Aaron's father. Over the many years Oren & Penny came to the parties in Tiffin, Oren and I would sit and talk aboue his work,his golf and retirement. He was always so sincere and he took special care of Penny the last few yeas of her life.. I will always always remember Oren as a kind, gentle, and carring man. My deepest sympathy to his family. May he rest in peace.
