Abel Orosco, Jr

Abel Orosco Jr., 66, of Richland, WA passed away peacefully on September 20th, 2023. Abel was born on March 3rd, 1957 in Sunnyside, WA. He was raised in Mabton, Wa, and graduated high school in 1976. Shortly after graduation Abel joined the army, serving from 1976-1979. After returning from the service, he met Layla Villanueva of Granger. They got married in 1981 and had three sons, Abel, Adam and Andy. They remained married for 20 years.

Abel held many titles in his life which included a Nuclear Security Guard at the Handford site, Supervisor for the build of a new Boise Cascade lumber mill in Papanoa, Mexico, as well as Supervisor for the Yakima Boise Cascade, convenience store owner and in his later years a car salesman. Of all the titles he held his proudest accomplishment was being a father and grandfather.

Abel is survived by his son’s and daughter in-law’s; Abel Orosco III (Mollie Orosco), Adam Orosco, Andy Orosco (Amber Horton) and 8 beloved grandchildren; Abel Orosco IV, Alex Orosco, Isabelle Orosco, Adam Orosco Jr., Vada Orosco, Andy Orosco Jr., Aubrey Orosco, Ayden Orosco. Layla Bowman, his lifelong friend and mother to his children. Two brothers Gilbert Orosco and Robert Henandez (Robin Hernandez). Nephew Gilbert Orosco Jr. and niece Monika Orosco and a dear friend Pete Ruiz, who was like a brother.  Abel is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.

Abel was preceded in death by Lisa Orosco and Gilbert Ysmael Orosco “Lil Gibby”.

In the words of those who loved him deeply Abel will always be remembered as a man who was determined, ambitious and driven to succeed in life.  He was strong and not afraid of anything. He took life by the horns. Abel was a man with a huge heart who adored his children and loved all his grandchildren. You could always count on him to help; he would give his last dollar in a time of need because that’s the type of father and man he was. He had a great sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. He would brighten up a room with his presence. He was known for his good looks and always dressed to impress. But most of all he was kind, loving and caring. We are blessed to call him dad and grandpa. He is the legend, our legend, Abel Orosco Jr.

Viewing and service to be held at Sunset Gardens Event Center, 915 Bypass Highway, Richland, WA 99352 on Sunday October 8th, 2023. Viewing is from 9:00am – 12:00pm. Service to follow immediately after viewing. Reception starting at 3:00pm at The Eagles, 2829 W Sylvester St, Pasco, WA 99301.

  • May he Rest in Peace. I met Abel as Lorenzo’s cousin. He was very close. He would call or visit. He and Lorenzo would spend hours visiting and having a cold beer. I met Layla and their children from infancy. He is remembered by as as crazy Abel the sharp dresser, full of fun and genuine concern for his twin cousins, both Lorenzo and Larry. He came to give us his condolences couple days after Lorenzo’s death. Thank you Abel for being such an awesome cousin and friend.
    My heartfelt condolences to to his family n close friends. Janie, Lorenzo Jr and Nikki Sabedra
