Ted Joseph Orel, age 93, passed away on January 5, 2021. Ted was born on March 11, 1927 in Cleveland Ohio to Joseph and Wladyslawa (Opala) Orel and he married Alicia Milewski on September 27, 1947. Together, they raised three daughters.

After graduation from South High School, Ted served in the U.S. Army during World War II. After his honorable service, he became a purchasing agent for cigarette and candy companies. He retired from Safiers, Inc. in 1984. After his retirement, Ted enjoyed being on two bowling leagues, one golf league, and cultivating his garden. In addition to being an avid bowler, golfer, and gardener, Ted was active with the Gilmour Council #310 Knights of Columbus, (where he served as Grand Knight), Collingwood Memories, and the Union of Poles.

He is survived by his wife Alicia Orel; daughters Cheryl Harrell (Chris), Nancy Orel, and Deborah Bixler (Jay); four grandchildren (Shannon Harrell [Kevin Ament}, Justin Harrell {Erin], Bryce Bixler, and Ryan Bixler); two great-grandchildren (Sawyer Hoehnen and Garrett Harrell); nieces and nephews; and four grand-dogs (Billie, Biscuit, Cheddar, and Snickers). He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers (Chester, Henry, and Edward), and his sisters (Charlotte Kiersh, Rita Sladeski, and Caroline Orel).

Per Ted’s request there will be no visitation. A mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date. The family would like to give a special thanks to the caregivers at The Fountains for all of their care and compassion.

Condolence from Cheryl Harrell on March 3rd, 2021 2:35 pm

Thank you for your kind donation to the Knights of Columbus Charities in honor of my dad, Ted Orel. My dad gave his heart and soul to the Knights of Columbus and was a Grand Knight, Knight of the Year, all the way down to preparing a pierogi party for his brother knights, with my mom’s help. It warms my heart that you did this to remember my dad.

Condolence from Joseph Cooney on January 7th, 2021 7:33 pm

We will miss your warm smile and your wit and jokes there Brother Ted. Condolences and prayers go out to his soul and to the family. Our brother Knight and great guy.
