He was a veteran, having served with the United States Marine Corps, which he loved dearly.
He leaves behind his best friend and wife, Teresa Orange; beloved children, John Orange, Ian Franklin and Jessica St. Clair; adored grandchildren, Cody, Timmy, Sebastian, Hayden and Milo; special nephews, Mason and Nicky; and sister, Lisa Diluzio.
