Orville Clark Vanderlip, 109, husband of the late Catherine Vanderlip of Auburn, passed away peacefully in the evening on Sunday, December 23, 2018. He was surrounded by family at his home. Born in St. Thomas, North Dakota, Orville was the son of the late Gertrude (Bartholomew) and Harry Lynn Vanderlip. Orville graduated from St. Thomas High School on May 31, 1929. Named for the famous aviator Orville Wright, he first worked on the family farm and then was employed for 45 years in the grocery business as a store owner and successful sales representative. He was an avid, skilled golfer who played 112 golf courses from 1940 2005. He was a longtime member of the Bidwell Park Golf Course in Chico. He was a good father, an honest businessman and a gentleman of humor and integrity. He was loved, respected and trusted by business associates, friends, and family. His secret for longevity was optimism, moderation, and exercise. Blessed with health throughout his long life, he walked two miles every day until the age of 102.
