Jacobo “Jack” Orona

1/31/36 - 9/1/19


With profound sadness we are announcing the return home of Jack Orona on September 1st, 2019. His devoted wife of 54 years, Dianne Orona, his 3 children and their spouses, Lisa and Urban Burris, Norah and Adam Barela, Jacob and Reina Orona, along with Jack’s 13 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and all the other loving family and friends throughout his 83 years of life will greatly miss him.


Jack joined his parents Jacobo Sr. and Aurelia, 7 siblings, and sadly his grandson Dominic Griego, with our Lord, leaving his last remaining sister, Sylvia Flores.


Everyone that was blessed to know Jack knew he spent his time fishing, hunting, working hard and making people laugh. Jack honorably served his country and fought for the freedom to enjoy life.

The Orona Family would like to invite everyone to celebrate his life and legacy with us on Monday, September 9, 2019 at Calvary Chapel Rio Grande Valley in Belen. There will be a viewing at 9:30 am with Funeral Service to follow at 10:00 am. Interment will be at Terrace Grove Cemetery in Belen following the service.




Arrangements have been entrusted to:


Riverside Funeral home of Los Lunas

820 Main Street NE, Los Lunas, NM 87031

I am thinking of and praying for the whole family. Jack was such a good person and funny! I will miss him. Here's a little poem for you all. "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear?
