Orville Leo Hennen was born on September 24, 1929, in Westerheim Township to Leo and Isabelle (Jennen) Hennen. He grew up on the family farm, and attended St. Eloi Catholic School and Minneota High School. He was united in marriage to Marjorie Versluys on May 19, 1952. The couple milked cows, farmed, and raised five sons on their farm near Ghent until moving to Marshall in 1995. After retiring from the farm, Orville sold insurance and then started Hennen Tours, which he and Marge enjoyed doing together. Orville was an active member of St. Eloi Church and then Holy Redeemer later in life. He was also active as treasurer for the Catholic Order of Foresters for many years. Orville and Marge enjoyed taking many trips together but most of all enjoyed taking in all of the sporting events their grandchildren and even great grandchildren were in. He could always be seen in the bleachers cheering them on.

Orville died peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, November 4, 2019, at Avera Morningside Heights. He is survived by his loving wife Marjorie of Marshall; children Greg (Twyla) Hennen of Ghent, Mike (Pam) Hennen of Minneota, Tom Hennen of Wendell, Rick (Stacey) Hennen of Ghent, and Joe (Kelly) Hennen of Ghent; grandchildren Amberly (Cory) Crowley, Allan (Jessica) Hennen, Adam Hennen, Brandon (Angie) Hennen, Cassi (Matt) Hodder, Hayley (Cody) Fruin, Ashley (Jordan) Dahl, Mariah Hennen, Austin Hennen, Jonah Hennen, Sam Hennen, Seth Hennen, Shane (Rachel) Hennen, Summer Hennen, Brooke (Daren) Guetter, Trent (Brooke) Hennen, Walker (Faith) Hennen, Cole Hennen, and many great-grandchildren; siblings Jack (Terry) Hennen, Judy Bot, Rona VanKeulen, David (Diane) Hennen, Kris (Curt) Teberg; sisters-in-law Margaret Mitchell and Elaine Hennen; many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Ralph and Conrad; brothers-in-law Allan VanKeulen, Vincent Bot, Ted Versluys; sister-in-law Kate Versluys; and grandson Christopher Hennen.
