Francisco "Bob" Xavier Orozco

January 7, 1964October 3, 2019

Francisco Xavier Orozco, age 55, passed away peacefully and surrounded by family on October 3, 2019. Francisco also known as Bob or Bobby, was raised in Huron, a small farm town in the Central Valley. He graduated from Coalinga High School and eventually went on to attend West Hills Community College to study criminology. After having his two eldest daughters Bob went on to move to Coalinga in order to raise his girls. As to provide a good life for his family he became a Correctional Officer for CDCR, he went on to serve for 20 years. During his time in his position he made some life long friendships and made a long last impression. He served honorably and enjoyed his job.

Bob was an avid golf player. He enjoyed playing a round of golf with his close friends, some of them partners he worked with. He loved sports football, baseball and college football, his teams were the Oakland Raiders, Yankees and the Fresno State Bulldogs.

Bob was known by all as kind, generous, and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was known to always have a good story to tell or a restaurant recommendation being that he was a foodie.

Francisco Xavier Orozco is survived by his wife Sharon Kay Orozco, daughters Grace, Ashley and Haley Orozco, step-kids Devin and Levi, grandchildren Ariel, Carlos, Liam, Mazzi, Mary and Ava, siblings Sylvia Garcia and Tacho Orozco. He also had countless other friends and family that were near and dear to his heart.

Unfortunately, Bob was diagnosed with cancer in September 2017 and it took his life a little at a time. He fought a long hard fight to stay on this earth with his family. Bob wanted most in this world to watch his grandchildren grow, they were everything to him. Even though cancer took his life it didn’t take his spirit. He loved seeing anyone who came to visit right to the end and left us with wonderful memories. Bob’s wish was to not have any public services and his family has chosen to respect his wishes. There will be a private Celebration of Life at a later date in Avila Beach, Ca; Bob loved the coast so his family found it appropriate to celebrate his life there. Please join us in celebrating his life if you were a friend of his and knew he would like you to join.


Heavenly Father I come to you asking that you forgive me of all my sins, Father I know you have called me so many times and I didn't listen. You are the only one Lord who can save my soul, and I beg of your mercy! Lord come into my heart and don't depart from me. Allow my name to be written in the book of like. I thank you for Your Son Jesus who died on the cross and rose from the dead to give me new life in you. l Today I give my whole self to you and ask that you be my advocate, my defender in the presence of the Father I pray that if I live, I live for you and if I die, I may die for you! I pray in Jesus mighty name Amen.


  • Services Will Be Held Privately By The Family

Frank always had a good story to tell.... even when he wasn’t feeling well. I will always remember him for how he loved and cared for my sister Sharon (his wife). I was lucky enough to share his love of golf and I enjoyed our rounds of golf together. We played at Avila, Monarch Dunes, Black Lakes and Kings Country Club.
Your Yankees are doing great!
You fought hard and long Frank... Rest In Peace.

I always had a blast working with Bob, he would always tell me these long long stories and I'd purposely interrupt to piss him off, finally he'd say, " Dirty shut up so I can tell the story, you want to hear it or what man". Those were GOOD TIMES.

My Condolences and prayers to the family.
