Obituary for Orvil G. Henriksen, Jr.

September 14, 1950 - September 13, 2019
Beaver Dam, Wisconsin | Age 68


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Orvil Gene Henriksen Jr of Beaver Dam WI and Belpre OH on Friday, September 13, 2019 at the age of 68.

Orvil was born on September 14, 1950 in Oshkosh, Wis. to Orvil and Leona (Toots) Henriksen. He graduated from Beaver Dam High School in 1968. In 1973 he graduated from the University of Oshkosh with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology. Upon graduation, Orvil worked for the US Bureau of Public Debt in Parkersburg WV until his retirement in 2007.

Orv was a kind person with many close friends. He was always willing to help out in any way he could. He truly enjoyed riding his bicycle and was known to stop at a favorite drinking spot along the way. He always tried to find the best in others and enjoyed the simple things in life.

Orv was always ready for a good laugh. He had a wonderful smile and beautiful blue eyes that would just shine and make you feel good. He was an avid Brewer's and Packer's fan.

Orv is survived by his father Orvil Henriksen Sr, brother John (Donna) Henriksen, sisters Cherry (Richard) Yarwood and Marianne (Dave) Hilker, nephews Chad (Therese) Henriksen, Talyn (Brittany) Yarwood, Cirdan (Ashley) Yarwood, nieces Cara (Andy) Schultz and Arwyn Yarwood, special friends Bob, Russ & Kala, Tom, Dan and Greg. Orvil is further survived by aunts, uncle, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother Leona (Toots) Henriksen, his paternal and maternal grandparents.

Per Orvil's request, no formal funeral services will take place.

The family would like to thank the staff at At Home Instead, Randolph Health Services and Hillside Hospice for their great care.
