Richard (Penny) Orozco, 60, entered the gates of heaven and started Jamming again with the band and the rest of the Boys in Rock and Roll Heaven! Jam On Bro!
He was born December 31, 1953 to Louis L. and Yolando G. Orozco and passed away peacefully at his home in Ogden May 19, 2014. He was the best guitar and bass guitar player I have ever known! Music was his life and love forever. He served honorably in the US Army. He was proud to be a Vietnam Era Veteran.
Penny was a very loving and caring person. Every life he touched was a positive and special gift. His heart was made of gold and solid as stone. He was the best brother a sister could ever have. He was the greatest father, the craziest and funniest uncle, and the smartest grandpa.
He is preceded in death by his father, Louis L. Orozco and his brother, Eugene Orozco.
He is survived by his mother, Yolanda G. Orozco, sister, Marie (Cado) Green, his brother Joe (Rosalita) Orozco, 14 children: Tanya, Crystal, Christine, Mary, Amanda, Pepper, Richard, Sasha, Nicholas, Daniel, Roger, Pennymarie, Alex, and Gene, 40 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
