In loving memory of our father, Oscar R. Orellana, who passed away on June 26th, 2022. He was the devoted husband of Angela Chavarria Orellana and loving father of Oscar A. Orellana, Oscar R. Orellana, Raul E. Orellana, Osman R. Orellana, Angel A. Orellana, and Walter A. Orellana. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
One of the kindest souls on this planet, our father was a gentle, giving man who worked tirelessly to ensure that his family had everything they needed. He faced every challenge in life with admirable strength and courage.
Early in life, our father learned the importance of hard work and he instilled that same work ethic in us. He was always there for us when we needed help with anything in life. He was a man of honor and he taught us the importance of family, hard work, and doing what is right.
For all those that knew Oscar R. Orellana, he was often the life of the party! He was also a passionate soccer fan and could often be found at home watching games of Barcelona or the Honduras National Team. When he wasn’t home there was a good chance he was buying scratch-offs or playing his numbers for the lottery.
Our father was a true role model who we will always look up to. The funeral service will be held at Kedz Funeral Home on Thursday, June 30th, 2022 from 5:30 PM-8:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a scholarship that will be started in his name for Lakewood High School students by visiting this link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/orellana-family-memorial-scholarship?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1
Father, you are now at peace but you will live on forever in our hearts. We love you so much. Rest in peace.
“A Word for the Traveling Dad”
There is peace at the end of this road,
Your route takes honor, dedication, and a smile,
With wind blowing through your hair reminding you, that there is peace at the end of this road,
Notes dancing across your soul like all the kisses you deserve,
A comfort that you earned,
The sun sets but it also rises,
With warmth like love,
The turbulence is the journey, the effort is the proof,
there is a hug waiting to be shared,
