WESTPORT, CONN Burton Ira Orland, 87, of Westport, CT, passed away at home unexpectedly on Sunday, May 5th. Burt was born in the Bronx to Dorothy (neé Rosenthal) and Maxwell Wendell Orland. He graduated from Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from Columbia University. Burt began his career in retail pharmacy, and for 17 years, was the Director of Pharmacy and Strategic Planning at the Fallon Clinic in Worcester, MA. He then served in executive roles in various managed care organizations including New York Life, Harvard Pilgrim, and United Healthcare. He was a pioneer in the managed care pharmacy industry and nationally recognized for his contributions. Burt was an avid and astute fan of professional sports, particularly his beloved New York Rangers. He loved theatrical and musical performances and was a World War II history buff. He was a Mason and lifetime member of Level Lodge in Worcester, MA as well as a member of the Shriners. He was known by all for his kind, caring, selfless personality and especially for his infectious humor. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word.
