Orzelle worked in local television for 40 years. He started
at WCFT in August of 1969. He worked behind the scenes and in front of the camera, serving in a variety of roles that ranged from programming director to weathercaster. When WCFT merged with WJSU in 1996 he became an original member of the ABC 33/40 family.
A humble man with a great sense of humor, Orzelle's smile was infectious. He could make you feel better just by looking at you. He was a devout Christian and a member of the First Missionary Baptist Church of Moundville. He served the church as its minister of music for 42 years.
He is survived by two brothers and their families.
