Richard Lee Orahood

Richard Lee Orahood passed away May 10, 2005. He was 50 years old.

Richard lived many years in the Roaring Fork Valley and in the Grand Junction area. He was a hard worker at anything he ever did, from masonry to rough-necking. Most of all, he worked hard at helping and caring for people, being a friend or being there for someone who just needed help. Richard was loved for a long time by anyone who ever had the pleasure of knowing him. Now, he will be missed for a long time by all. Semper Fi.

In honor of Richard’s life, all are welcome to join his family and friends for a celebration of his life from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 11, at Arbaney Park in Basalt.
