Corwin Damian Ortego

November 4, 1961 — June 26, 2024

With heavy hearts the family of Corwin Damian Ortego sadly announces his passing on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, at Oaklane and Rehabilitation Center in Eunice. He was 62. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 am on Saturday, June 29, 2024, at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Basile. Entombment will follow in the St. Augustine Mausoleum with Father Keenan Brown as Celebrant.

 Corwin was a graduate of Basile High School from the class of 1980. His love for football, especially the Bearcats, shone brightly as he passionately supported his sons' games. The outdoors held a special place in his heart - whether tending to the rice fields or enjoying leisurely afternoon rides.

 Above all else, Corwin cherished moments spent with his family, finding true joy in the presence of his children and grandchildren. His warmth and love touched the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him. Corwin will be deeply missed but forever remembered by those whose lives he brightened with his kindness and love especially his wife of forty-three years, Deneen Ortego of Basile; six children, Dustin Ortego and wife, Amy of Eunice, Chesly Ortego and wife, Haley D. and Hunter Ortego and wife, Haley S of Basile, Mason Ortego and wife, Caroline of Eunice, Carly Pelloquin and husband, Trenton and Landon Ortego and wife, Taylor of Basile; three brothers, Michael Darwin Fontenot and wife, Karen of Basile, Cornell Fontenot and wife, Cindy of Iota and Bernard Ortego of Basile.
