In Memoriam: Orieon Dorth Willhite, Jr., PT, CHT

Posted by Ken Flowers, PT, CHT on 01/23/2018

Orieon Dorth Willhite, Jr., PT, CHT, affectionately known by his family and friends as simply "OD," died Oct. 2, 2017 at the age of 73 of complications following a severe car crash earlier in the summer. OD will be remembered as many things, chief among them: husband of wife Suzie, father to daughter Taryn, grandfather of two, graduate of Loma Linda University, patriot, and former Captain in the US Army Medical Corp. To his professional colleagues, he was a uniquely loyal charter member of the ASHT, arguably attending a record number of annual meetings. He owned and operated his successful private practice in Chico, California until his retirement in 2016. You are already missed, OD.
