Orville Dean Lage was born on June 28, 1932 at rural Sholes, NE to Walter and Ruby (Hale) Lage. He attended Wayne County Rural School and graduated from Carroll High School in 1949. Orville was asked to try out for the New York Yankees Farm System and took a train to Oklahoma. In 1952, he enlisted in the United States Air Force and took his basic training in San Antonio. On December 31, 1952, he was united in marriage to Mary Lea Jensen at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Winside, NE.

Orville was stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base near Rapid City, SD. While in Rapid City, he began auctioneering at an auction house. In 1956, after being honorably discharged, they moved to a farm north of Pilger, NE. Orville enjoyed farming and continued helping his son farm until 2012. Orville worked with several auctioneers in Northeast Nebraska and also worked for Lambert Realty, before starting Lage Auction and Realty.

Orville and Mary Lea moved into Pilger in 1995.

Orville was a member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, the Winside American Legion Post #252, and the Masonic Lodge. He had formerly served on the Winside School Board, and had been a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Winside-serving on Church Council, the National Auctioneers Association, and the Lewis and Clark Board of Realtors.

Orville enjoyed playing cards, telling jokes, gardening, and watching baseball-especially when the grandchildren played.
