Adolfo was a family man. Gentle, kind and loving, he worked hard without complaint to give everything to his family. His work varied throughout the years from manufacturing and distribution to ranch worker and farm hand as well as several years working at Phoenix Sand and Rock. Regardless of what he did for a living, he loved to be outside. In his leisure time he would be found working in his yard with a big cup of coffee in the morning and relaxing in the yard with a cold beer in the afternoon. Adolfo loved his children and grandchildren. He had nicknames for each of them and he loved to joke and tease them. He was a master of one liners!
Adolfo loved hats and wore them all of the time. He liked to watch westerns and war movies and enjoyed music and dancing. He was a history buff and faithfully read the newspaper daily. He loved to travel with his wife, Alice and together they enjoyed three cruises.
Adolfo is survived by his wife, Alice Orozco; son, Greg Orozco; daughters, Elizabeth Parra, Valerie Ortiz, and Leticia Hules; two sisters, Maria Luisa Molina and Nilza Ramirez; ten grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Raul V. and Maria Luisa Orozco; brother, Mario Orozco; sister, Frecia Quesada.
