Born in Boley, Oklahoma, Orbert began studying piano at the age of 8. Classical music was Orbert’s passion and his dream manifested in 1998 when he performed “An Evening of Romantic Classics” to benefit his spiritual home, “Living in the Light Ministry”.
He touched many lives especially in the arenas of living with HIV and recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism. Orbert’s legacy of gentleness, sensitivity, and kindness leaves us hopeful and thankful for his soul, body and spirit.
During his final days, while flying back to Los Angeles, in the midst of dementia and confusion, Orbert made a profound statement to his sister:
“It’s all about love, it’s all about love, why are there so many rules?”
Capturing the essence of Orbert’s spiritual beliefs, those words are displayed on Orbert’s Memorial Plaque.
Thank you Orbert for touching our hearts and lives.
