Gregory “Greg” Edward Orzell, age 80, of Wilmington, DE, formerly of Brookhaven, PA, passed away on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at Riddle Village.

He was born in Philadelphia, PA and raised in Chester, PA. Greg is the son of the late Therese (Schuck) and Edward Orzell. He graduated from Chester High School in 1962. Greg proudly served his country in the US Navy during the Vietnam War from 1962-1966.

Greg worked for Boeing as a Composite Fabricator and retired after 44 years with the company.

He enjoyed playing poker, watching movies, reading, fixing things around the house, and particularly playing golf. But the time he cherished the most was time with his family, especially playing with his grandchildren.
