An Obituary: Wayne Thomas Orpin

Wayne Thomas Orpin passed away on October 28, 2021.    Mr. Orpin moved to Bedford with his family in 1949; as a teenager, he helped his father build the family’s home at 1 Evans Ave. After a career in radio communication technology with the US Air Force, Mr. Orpin began designing, testing, and implementing various technologies from pediatric x-ray equipment to guidance systems for ballistic missiles. After retirement, collecting electric trains, antique clocks, and automobiles became his passion.

Because the last thing he wanted was “to have a bunch of people standing around being sad for hours,” a private, family-only service will be held where he will be remembered with hearty laughs, great food, and vodka martinis (rocks on the side, with olives).
