Alberto Orozco, age 103, of Marana, AZ, passed away on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at home, surrounded by his wife and daughter. He was born to the late Mr. and Mrs. Roberto Orozco on January 25, 1916, in Santander Colombia. In 1954 he married his soulmate, Beatriz, in Barranquilla Colombia, where he worked for many years as an accountant. In 1970 he moved with his wife and daughter to Bryn Mawr, PA. There, he worked in environmental services at Paoli Hospital until his retirement in 1981 at the age of 65. In early retirement he cherished the time he was able to spend as “Gwampea” to his two granddaughters. In later years, he spent time in both Colombia and the United States before settling down with his wife and daughter in Marana, AZ, in 2016.

Alberto was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Alicia. He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years Beatriz, and his doting daughter Bea, both of Marana, AZ, as well as his beloved granddaughters, Jennifer of New Port Richey, FL, and Sandra of Queen Creek, AZ.

Final arrangements are private.

I remember grandpa Orozco as I called him even though he wasn't my grandfather but the Grandfather of my 2 nieces. Jenn and Sandi. Mr. Orozco was a very loving and gentle man. He loved his family very much. They were lucky to have him in their lives. Mr. Orozco please rest in peace. Your are with God our father. Love you, Betty.
