He could often be found fishing, cooking out, or relaxing on the porch with a cold beer in hand, surrounded by his friends. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Lora; son, Rufus Orender; daughter, Katrina Blackwell; two stepchildren; eight grandchildren; two brothers, four sisters, several nieces and nephews, and a special friend, Dusty Prater.
