Vincent Leon Oriet

Vincent L. Oriet passed on October 20, 2008 at his home in Prescott, Arizona surrounded by his family.  He was born July 18, 1930 in Great Falls, Montana the son of Lenard A. and Margerite (Dechantal) Oriet. Vince was 78 years old.   Vince first came to Prescott in 1948 with his mother, grandmother, and 7 siblings.  In 1950 he returned to Montana and joined the Montana Air National Guard where he served for 7 years in armament.  When he concluded his term in the Guard, he purchased an independent grocery store and butcher shop in Lincoln Montana.  Vince came back to Prescott in the Mid 60?s and worked as a carpenter.  He then spent 3 years driving over the road for Mayflower Van Lines and Lucky Seven Transfer where he met the love of his life; Loretta, who purchased  Lucky 7 in 1968. They were married May 6th, 1971.  Vince and Loretta sold Lucky 7 in 1982 and retired.    It was very apparent to everyone who knew Vince and Loretta that they were lifetime partners: great parents and best friends.  Vince shared his love of the outdoors to his boys and grandchildren.   They fondly remember exploring Arizona in his Nissan Patrol and the many camping, fishing and dirt bike trips with favorites being "Top of the Rock", ?Jackrabbit Flats? and Mingus Mountain.  He was proudest of his family. Vince was a member of Prescott Community Church.   Vince is survived by his beloved Loretta; step-sons. Tony (Nancy) Mahler of Huntsville, TX, Steve Mahler of Chandler, AZ. and Michael (Dede) Mahler of Tempe, AZ; brother Joe (Ann) of McPherson, Kansas; sisters; Margerite Leckliter of Prescott,  Zita Morgan of Sedona and Miaram (Charles) Witt of Sullivan, MO.  He was a devoted Papa to his 7 grandchildren (Chad, Sean, Nikki, Kristen, Kelly, James, and Bethany) and 2 great grandchildren (Kiersten and Blake), and his constant companion Benji.
