    Tom passed last Thursday November 5. He was 81 years old. I believe his record of the most targets in Canada still stands and he hasn't shot for a few years now! He was inducted into Alberta Provincial Trapshooting Hall of Fame in 2004.
    There are many people around who remember him vividly: his quiet way, his support and participation since the 1950s, and mostly his love of the sport and the companionship of other shooters. He is missed. See attached photo. Trevor Dawe

    Tom was truly one of the good guys. I will not forget when Tom went way out of his way to give me a ride from the Edmonton Gun Club to St. Albert. He will be missed. MikeTMX

    I'm sorry I never knew Mr. Orlick but the measure of a lady's or gentleman's life is reflected in the loss felt by their friends. My condolences.
