OBITUARY

Marvin George ORROCK

September 11, 1932March 23, 2020

Mickey Orrock passed away peacefully at 4:10pm on Monday March 23, 2020.

He was born in Vidora Saskatchewan on September 11, 1932. He and his parents, Lynn and Cecil, moved to BC in 1937. Mickey graduated from John Oliver High School in 1950 and went on to study at UBC. While there he took a government entrance exam to work for Fisheries Canada. At age 20, Mickey was one of 20, from a pool of 500 that were chosen to work for Fisheries. Mickey worked in Port Hardy and through the Desolation Sound for about one year before coming back to Surrey where he started to study to become a psychiatric nurse. Mickey worked as a psychiatric nurse then counsellor at Riverview Hospital until he retired at age 54. When Mickey retired he became my chauffeur and general helper at our shop. Mickey build our home and helped others build theirs, he played the piano beautifully, loved to fish and loved to go camping with friends and family.

We have a lot of very fond memories of our camping and bike trips with friends and family. When the kids were teens we became involved in DeMolay, it became a part of our lives and Mickey became Dad to about 40 young men. One of these men yesterday said that Mickey became the moral compass for many of the young men. He was always fair, honest, respectful and would always tell you how he saw it. To this day we still keep in touch with many of the young lads.

He will be greatly missed by his wife Anne, Daughter, Carol, Son, Kent, Son In Law, Jeff, Grandson's, Victor and Blaine and Sister, Sharon and her family.

Mickey is predeceased by his Son, Rob, Parents, Lynn and Cecil, three Brother In Law's and two Sister In Law's.

A celebration of life will be planned after the Covid-19 virus has subsided. We will be in touch. Blessings to you all. Anne Orrock
