Darrel Orsborn, 69, of Howard’s Ridge, Missouri was born May 21, 1945 in Buffalo City, Arkansas to the late Sam and Sarah (Beavers) Orsborn. He was the youngest of six children and an only son. He departed this life on April 30, 2015 at the Hospice of the Ozarks Hospice House in Mountain Home, Arkansas.
Darrel attended high school in Mountain Home, Arkansas and later in Monroe City, Missouri where he graduated in 1963. He worked at Warehouse Liquor in Mountain Home for 30 years before he retired in 2011. He was also a gunsmith and had his own business at his home. Darrel had a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh. He liked to garden and loved to share his harvest with friends and family. He also liked to fish and hunt mushrooms in the spring and take trips to Tunica with his two special lady friends. Most people that knew him well would say that he was one of a kind. He will be missed by all who knew him.
