Robbin “Rob” Orcutt passed away peacefully at his home in Gresham on March 26th, 2023 after a long battle with cancer.
Rob was born to Bob and Bonnie Orcutt in Chula Vista, CA on January 3rd, 1958. That same month, the family moved to Gresham, OR. Rob attended Powell Valley Grade School, Dexter McCarty Middle School, Sam Barlow High School, and Mt. Hood Community College.

The family is appreciative of the years of care provided by Dr. Anne Sutherland, Dr. Annie Hung, and caregiver Peggy Carlson.
Rob is survived by his mother, Bonnie; sister, Rhonda (Cox) and brother-in-law, Doug (Cox,) as well as many extended family members.
