In Memoriam: Dante Orgoralini


Dante Orgoralini
Sept. 5, 1935 – July 19, 2018

Dante Orgoralini, born Sept. 5, 1935, went home to be with the Lord on July 19, at home surrounded by his wife Loreene, daughter Mary, son-in-law Johnnie and grandchildren Aaron and Emma. He had a varied and colorful life and was a friend and mentor to so many.

Dante was a Marine veteran of the Korean War, car salesman, originator of Nature’s Recipe Dog food; developer of Scientific Supplements brand for animals and creator of WYS Enterprises selling corrugated boxes.

Finally, the dream job for his remaining years was working in a cigar lounge! He started at Zafuto’s Cigar Haven at Ontario Mills then Burning Desire Cigar Lounge in Dos Lagos. He loved meeting people, watching sports, having a cigar and a little scotch (single malt only, please!). They treated him as “The Godfather”.

Dante is survived by his wife of 42 years, Loreene, children, Wendy of Missouri, Robert of Idaho, Sean and Tina of California and Mary of Vancouver, Washington, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his son James.

A Celebration of Life to share wonderful memories will be held at his home on Aug. 11.  He will be missed by all!
