Orville Luther Fast, the son of Floyd and Mary (Mitchell) Fast was born November 30, 1925 near Mortonís Mill, Iowa. Orville passed away on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at the Good Samaritan Center in Villisca, Iowa at the age of 87 years, 9 months and 24 days. Orville farmed and lived in the rural Mortonís Mill, IA area his entire life. He was united in marriage to Mary Margaret (Peggy) Cozad on January 15, 1946. To this union seven children were born: Cathi, Larry, Doug, Debbie, Rich, Chuck and Sherri. Orville was known by many as: husband, father, father-in-law, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother, and a friend to many in his rural community. Orville had two loves - his family and farming. He especially enjoyed family get-togethers and reunions and visits with neighbors and friends. He always found time to stop from his work to make time for those special visits when someone stopped by and attend activities that his kids, grandkids, and great grandkids participated in. Orville had a deep appreciation and respect for farming the land, raising cattle and living in a rural community, and he passed that same appreciation to his children and grandchildren.

Orville was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Juanita Hall; brothers, Clark and Wayne Fast; sister-in-law, Mildred Marsden and Betty Fast; brothers-in-law, Gerry Hall, Robert Watts, Bill Cozad and Ray Marsden.
