Rick Orrell

December 28, 1958 — March 18, 2024

Florissant, Colorado

Rick Orrell died at home in the mountains of Florissant, Colorado with his wife Janet on Monday, March 18, 2024.

Rick was born on December 28, 1958 in Dallas, Texas. He was a strong-willed child who loved the outdoors and spending time with his friends. Rick graduated from Garden City High School in 1977. He married Janet on September 20, 1986. They resided in Garden City where they raised their two girls until Rick accomplished his dreams and retired in the mountains.

Rick was a hardworking man and did everything he could to provide for his family. He spent years as a carpenter for the local school district and foreman for Jomax Pipeline Construction. When he wasn’t working, you could find him at the lake with his dog fishing or hunting. Rick was a man of speed and collecting toys for his hobbies. His grandchildren were his pride and joy and he enjoyed sharing his love of fishing with them. Rick loved his people fiercely and took great joy in making them laugh.

Rick is survived by his wife Janet Orrell of Florissant, Colorado, his daughter Ashlea Becker and son-in-law Ben Becker of Overland Park, Kansas, his daughter Richelle Orrell of Kansas City, Missouri, his grandchildren Arren Becker (5), Adelaide Becker (3), and Alister Becker (5 weeks) of Overland Park, Kansas, his mother Kenda Orrell of Garden City, Kansas, and his sister Dawn Renee Hapes and brother-in-law Donnie Hapes of Florissant, Colorado.
