In the early morning of February 15, brothers Troy and Teague Orblych, were senselessly shot and killed defending their family and home from armed invaders, their lives snuffed out far before their time.  The invaders did not manage to get anything, even though they were offered anything they wanted from the house as long as they did not harm anyone.  They didn't take them up on that generous offer.

Troy and Teague Orblych were the salt of the earth, loving, caring, the best sons and brothers anyone could ask for.  Troy worked at the Walmart in Livonia as an assistant manager.  Teague worked as a librarian at the University of Michigan - Dearborn.  They were the backbone of their family and household both literally and financially.  They leave behind a 75 year old mother, sister who has multiple sclerosis and a brother who is developmentally disabled who loved to feed the neighborhood stray cats.

The family is trying to cope with this unthinkable tragedy.  To lose two sons/brothers in the prime of their young-at-heart lives to a merciless senseless act of violence is too much for anyone to bear.  The real world concerns of daily living are hitting home.  If there is anything you can spare, to help the Orblych family in their time of need, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for letting me color the lives of Troy and Teague Orblych, just a little bit.  Gone but never forgotten.

It's been over month since that terrible tragedy.  Not one moment goes by without a thought for Troy and Teague and a wish that they were still here, it just wasn't supposed to be like this.  The family is slowly coming to grips with this new reality.  There are still a lot of unanswered questions and of course the search for justice in finding the people responsible for this pointless gun violence. 

All the donors to the fund, family relatives, friends, the people at Walmart, the University of Michigan and many others; colleagues, acquaintances and strangers, have been amazing in their efforts to commemorate and remember Troy and Teague, to remember their names in an equal measure to how much they gave to the world. The family thanks all of you for your kind words, inspiration and support.

Again, thank you all...

Dear friends and colleagues of Teague Orblych,
 
On Friday, April 6, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., a memorial will be held to celebrate the life of Michael (Teague) Orblych, Research Education Coordinator and Social Sciences Librarian at the University of Michigan-Dearborn’s Mardigian Library. The memorial will be held in the Berkowitz Gallery, 3rd floor Mardigian Library.
 
Are you interested in sharing a memory or short story about Teague at the memorial? If so, contact either Nadine Anderson (nfanders@umich.edu) or Jamie Wraight (jwraight@umich.edu). If you cannot attend or don’t wish to speak, a memory book is being compiled for the family. Please send your favorite thoughts, stories, or memories to Nadine or Jamie.
 
Teague received his Bachelor in General Studies at the University of Michigan in 1991 and his Master of Library and Information Science in 1999 from Wayne State University. He worked as an Assistant Librarian at the University of Detroit Mercy from 2000 to 2001. Teague joined the Mardigian library in 2001 as an Assistant Librarian and worked his way to Librarian in 2014.
 
During his 17 years at the Mardigian Library, Teague impacted many students with his passion and dedication. As our Social Sciences Librarian, he was passionate about teaching and supporting students. As our Research Education Coordinator, he provided valuable leadership, expertise, and experience. He was known in the library and across campus as a respected collaborator in teaching and research, as well as a valuable member of our community. Teague’s passion for information literacy along with his publications, presentations, and leadership enriched the field of academic librarianship. Most of all, we will remember him as a great person who made us laugh.
 
We are establishing an endowed scholarship in Teague’s memory for UM-Dearborn students. To contribute, contact Eva Gogola by email ategronows@umich.edu or by phone at 313-593-5495.
 
Please share this with anyone you feel may wish to attend the memorial, share a memory, or contribute to the scholarship.
 
Regards,

The Mardigian Library Staff
