Panguitch, Utah

    Gary Hugh Orton passed away December 9, 2023 in Cedar City.  Gary was born June 6, 1934 to Lawrence Orton and Hazel Woodard Orton in Panguitch. He grew up in Panguitch working with livestock alongside his dad. He attended school in Panguitch. He loved sports and was happy the day he graduated. He was a hero to all of us; father, grandfather, and dear friend. 
    He met and married the love of his life, Colleen Ann Moore on September 23, 1955 in the Manti Temple. They had six children. Colleen preceded him in death August 30, 2010.
    He loved Mom and the six children, but was most proud of the grandchildren. You could hear him say, “There was not a bad one in the bunch.” Dad loved having the family together of any kind. He loved to have family cookouts whether it was at Red Canyon or the Wahweap.
    Gary is survived by his six children: Dwaine (Linda) Orton, Gaylene (Than) Cooper, Kelly Orton, David Orton, Harold (Rena) Orton, Holly (Jared) Pedersen; brother, Bob Orton; brothers-in-law, Lige Moore and Birch Moore; and sister-in-law, Lavinda Moore.
    Gary was also preceded in death by his parents; brothers: Brent and Don; and sister, Donna Mae.
