Orlando “Lando” Porras, 59, passed away surrounded by his family on Nov. 30, 2021 in Odessa, Tx, after a courageous fight against cancer. Orlando was born on
December 8, 1961 in Big Spring, Tx to Jose and Consuelo Porras. He was the fifth child out of ten children.
Lando was competitive, one of the family’s best athlete and prankster, which was probably why he did so well as a Golden Gloves boxer in his teens, and why he
was so loved by his coaches. He had a great career as a painter and he loved to work with his hands, and listening to all types of music. He will always be
remembered as easy going and funny, but he was also the protector of his family. He was an awesome grandpa, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. When he
wasn’t making jokes, or being with family, you could hear him banter with his brothers and his friends saying “negative” in the most funniest way possible. He
always made everyone laugh and just feel special and at home.
He lived his life surrounded with an abundance of love from his grandchildren, children, mother, brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces, who will always remember his great love of life and his love of his family.
Orlando Porras is survived by his mother, Consuelo Porras of Odessa, Tx; children, son Orlando Jesus Porras, son Brandon Porras, daughter Alex Esquivel, and stepson Robert Jimenez; siblings, Anna Maria Porras of Odessa, Tx, Jose Porras and wife Belinda Porras of Odessa, Tx, Nolberto Porras of Odessa, Tx, Priscilla Porras of Fort Worth, Tx, Daniel Porras and wife Carol Porras of Odessa, Tx, Moises Porras of Odessa, Tx, Belen Porras of Odessa,Tx; his best friend LouAnn Hernandez; 6 grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

McCullum of Pflugerville, Tx, his grandson Aizik Blaise Palomino of Midland, Tx, brother in law Randy McCullum of Pflugerville, Tx, grandparents Jesus and

in his life and in the lives of those who knew Lando.
