Obituary for Mr. Orrin Hamblin

January 29, 1928 - March 17, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 90


Orrin H. Hamblin left this earth March 17, 2018 to take his place in Heaven alongside his loving wife of over 65 years, Leta, and many other loved ones that had gone on before. Orrin was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and leaves behind a legacy of being kind and impacting many lives with whom he came in contact. He was born in Wellington, Kansas on January 29, 1928 and later moved to Texas where he went to college at Abilene Christian College and graduated in 1950. Later he received his Masters degree after going to SMU and University of Texas. He has been a minister, school teacher, principal, and prided himself by being associated with ministry work all through his life. He and Leta resided in Dallas while they raised their children, later moved to Amarillo, Texas to take care of his in-laws and finally moved to San Antonio to be close to family. He and Leta lived their final years at Brookdale at Hollywood Park and then Shavano Park Senior Living assisted living facilities and were as independent as possible for as long as possible.

He leaves behind three children and their spouses; Janie Renner and her husband, Doug; Jerry Hamblin and his wife, Mara; Karen Alexander and her husband, Terry; seventeen grandchildren; and twenty- five great grandchildren.

Orrin will be missed by numerous people but is finally at rest and with no pain and sadness for those that went on before him. We have all been blessed by his life and his example!

A special word of thanks especially to those that took such great care of Orrin his last years at Shavano Park Senior Living and those at hospice that tirelessly watched over him!

The family will be accepting friends on Thursday, March 22, 2018 form 1:00PM to 2:00PM
