Michael Anthony Ortega

September 12, 1991 — June 21, 2021

Michael Anthony Ortega, 29, of Amarillo passed away on Monday, June 21, 2021. He was born on September 12, 1991 in Amarillo, TX to Maria Chavez and Ralph Ortega.

Michael attended Amarillo High School during his time of education and later became a very hard worker for the local Owens Corning Company. He enjoyed many different sports and was an avid fan of the New York Yankees baseball team and the Atlanta Falcons football team. Michael enjoyed many other things as well, like, golfing, fishing and when he made time, he “eventually” worked on his truck.

Michael was an amazing son, brother, father and a very good friend to all who knew him. His smile was contagious and never let anger get the best of him. He was always one to “kill them with kindness” even up to his last breath. He was a good hearted, kind, caring person and loved everyone the way God loves. His memory will always remain cherished and he will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his “Popo” Sabastian Ortega.

He is survived by his mother, Maria Valdez and her husband Danny; his father, Ralph Ortega and his wife Lisa; his significant other, K-La Benson; his daughters, Kakee Ortega, Brynlee Ortega and Kambree Gonzalez; his siblings, Matthew Ortega, Dax Ortega, Daisy Ortega, Kaitlyn Valdez, Danny Jr. Valdez; his partner in crime, Jonathan Ramirez and so many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
