"Dr Victor Ornelas passed away at 11:29pm, September 3rd, 2019. He was surrounded by his wife and children, who sung his favorite hymns together as he entered the arms of Jesus. Victor was an incredibly faithful man: faithful to Jesus, to his wife, to his kids, and to his calling. He touched so many lives with kindness, gentleness, and humility.
Throughout his life, there wasn’t much that Victor didn’t do, including academic honors, sports, mission trips, and family activities. His personal relationship with Jesus Christ was the center of his life and right next to that was his love for his beautiful wife, Maria. Together, they enjoyed 40 years of committed marriage and they raised nine children—Victor Jr, Noel, Francesca, Ezekiel, Hannah, Luke, Tikvah, Ruth, and Tim—and enjoyed eight grandchildren. He was loved deeply by his parents, Laura and Edward Ornelas, and his siblings, Gloria, Edward, Lydia, John, Steve, and Anita.
Victor battled valiantly after having major brain surgery in July 2014. He never fully recovered but his family treasured the extra five years that God gave them. Through it all, Victor never lost his sense of humor and never complained. He continued to worship God and pray every night for each of his children.
His family is holding onto the words their dad shared before his surgery: “No matter what happens, trust the Lord.” For those who would like to join them in celebrating Victor’s life, there will be a service on Saturday, September 7th at Harvest Bible Church located at 1460 Eden Rd in Lancaster. Visitation will begin at 3pm, followed by a service at 4:30pm and interment circa 6:30pm at Gospel of Grace Community Church located at 45 N Kinzer Rd in Kinzers.
Much love and grace,
The Ornelas family"

Dr Victor Ornelas was present at the birth of my first child, Ethan. My parents also shared a close friendship with Dr and Maria Ornelas for many years. Saddened to hear of his passing as I am certain he is missed.

I remember him as having the kindest eyes, mischievous smile and endless patience.

To the Arizona Ornelas Family and to Victors Family, I am so sorry to hear of my good friend and CGUHS schoolmate that developed into such a wonderful man. His life of service to others and god is an example for all of us and I am sad for your loss. Most Sincerely,

Hi, my name is Kaye Zimmerman Braunbeck, I went to high school with Victor and I haven't seen him since. I would have recognized him on the street tho with that awesome smile and kind eyes. I will always remember him with that gray streak in his hair even in high school. What a nice obituary, it says it all doesn't it. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing but his love for life and Christ will carry on thru his children, family and all who knew him.

Hi Ornelas family,
I'm so sorry to hear that Victor has passed away. He was very kind man, and we are blessed to have known him and you all. I remember going to see him at the doctor's office in Fabens, way back, and visiting with you all out in the country in Fabens and Tornillo when my family would go out there to visit. You will be in my prayers, and I hope that the Lord blesses you with the peace that surpasses all understanding during this time.
With my deepest sympathies,
David J. Shindo
