Heath Alan Orndorff was born to Cherokee Clark and Tim Orndorff of January 3, 1989, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and he departed this earth at 32 years old on July 8, 2021. Heath graduated Norman High School in 2007, and attended Connors State College on baseball scholarship 2007-2009, and Oklahoma Christian University from 2010-2011, before returning to his home town of Norman where he began his career in Oil and Gas.
Heath never met a stranger and was known for his kind and caring soul. Heath excelled in athletics, more particularly baseball in which he started playing at the age of 3, lettering three years at Norman High, and as recently as 2020 coached a youth baseball team to a league championship. At a young age, Heath exuded a deep love for music and particularly live music. When there was an option to dance, Heath would dance. Heath loved the peacefulness of fishing on Lake Texoma, trolling in quiet coves, but also loved the vastness of the ocean and all of splendors it offered. He got his scuba diving certification at the age of 12, logging over 100 dives. He loved to go deep sea fishing and snagged “Barry” the barracuda which was his first taxidermied fish! It cost his dad a small fortune, but well worth it in Heath’s eyes.
Heath was preceded in death by both of his grandmothers, Dolores Faught and Imo Jean Clark.
He is survived by his mother, Cherokee Clark; his father, Tim Orndorff and wife Susan; his brother, Koby Orndorff and wife Taylor, and their children Knox and Nash; as well as his aunt, Maurine Beckworth and husband Kelly of Amarillo; and numerous cousins.
