We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at John M. Ireland & Son Funeral Home and Chapel
Robert Lee Orosco of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, passed away from this life on June 11, 2022, at the age of 75. Robert was born in Marfa, Texas, to Robert Lee and Effie Orosco on August 17, 1946. He grew up and attended school in the Marfa area.
Robert married his first wife, Eva, and together they had two sons, Jeremy, and Skye. Six years after Eva’s passing in 2004, Robert married his second wife, Diane Beadman. He had a varied career that began with picking cotton, shining shoes, and a short time as a roofer. Later, he went to work for Earth Grains Bakery, retiring from the company after over 20 years of dedicated service.
Robert liked being outdoors. He enjoyed fishing in his early years, especially for bass and catfish, and he loved tending to the variety of flowers in his gardens. More than anything, Robert cherished his family and was always there for his children. His loving, caring heart touched the lives of many, and he will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Effie (Jacquez) Orosco, his father, Jessie Orosco, a sister, Emily Espitia, and two brothers, Joe Orosco, and Oscar Orosco.
Left behind to treasure his memory are his two sons, Jeremy Orosco, and Skye Orosco, three brothers, Raymond, Jessie, and Armando Orosco, and two sisters, Julie Coke, and Rosie Rivera.
