Charles S. Orogvany, age 64, of Madison, Ohio, passed away Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at home while surrounded by his family. He was born December 13, 1950 in Cleveland, Ohio to Majean (Hart) and Stephen Orogvany. Charles married Aimee Lisa Sickler in Fulton, New York on June 13, 1981.

Chuck graduated from North Hunterdon HS in New Jersey and studied engineering at RPI. He was a nuclear engineer at the Perry Nuclear Plant. He worked with Boy Scout Troop 157 for many years and was a member of Chapel United Methodist Church. He was an avid photographer who loved camping and connecting with nature which was calming.
