Survivors include his wife Candace Nicole Orange, a daughter Zella Daniella Nicole Orange; brother Phillip Orange; mother Belinda Weathers and a sister-in-law Dena Pittman.
Tarrance was a very simple and private man! He had worked as a CNA at Maple Lawn Nursing Home in Palmyra, MO for over 20 years. Very well known for his hard working, caring nature. Tarrance was well loved by co-workers and clients alike. One of his favorite past times was spoiling and going on outings with his daughter Zella. Zella was his ultimate pride and joy! She was his shadow, even though she may end up being taller than him.Going shopping, out to eat and to the boat with his mother Belinda was how Tarrance spent his free time. He enjoyed playing NBA basketball on his Playstation generally with his brother Phillip and his cousin Clinton. He also enjoyed fishing, repeatedly sharing stories from his childhood based around his Grandmother and the fishing holes. He did have several habits but his morning ritual was watching one of his favorite TV shows "Charmed" as he coaxed his daughter to get ready for school. So many memories will be cherished of get-togethers and holidays spent with family including in-laws, and good times spent with friends and co-workers!!
Tarrance will be greeted in a heavenly reunion with Grandparents Louise & Earl Orange and Uncle Chris.
