Orin "Brent" Redelsperger


01/19/1966 - 08/25/2014 Obituary
A memorial for Orin "Brent" Redelsperger, former Supervising Butte County District Attorney, will be held at the Paradise Seventh-day Adventist Church, Saturday, September 20th, at 3:30p.m. He passed away on August 25, 2014, in Chico, California.
He was born January 19, 1966 in Loma Linda, California. His schooling took place at Graces High School, San Diego University, and Western State University Law School in San Diego. Brent grew up in Newport Beach and Bakersfield.
As a certified driver he experienced deep sea diving and fishing adventures in the Philippines and Mexico, where he caught his largest swordfish. His passion for travel placed him on the Semester at Sea program where he visited 35 countries. He loved his children, Gabriella and Bradley, over the moon and back and attended all of Bradley's football games and Gabi's swim meets, cheering sessions, and games - Together they went to Dallas Cowboy games in several different cities, with Brent being a consummate Cowboy fan. Serving for 18 years for the District Attorney, he protected Butte County's most vulnerable - the children and the elderly--with compassion and care and had a high conviction rate. Winston Churchill's saying, "When you make someone laugh, you give them a mini-vacation," inspired Brent to make everyone a victim of his wit and humor with brilliance and charm. With a God who loved him, he was a giver in life and giver after his death, donating his corneas, skin and several organs.
Brent is survived by his children, Gabriella Bren "Gabi" and Bradley Merritt Redelsperger, mother, Oleta Pate; father, Dr. Robert J. Redelsperger; brothers, Robert Bradley Redelsperger (Michelle) and Merritt Charles "Chad" Horning III (Kirsten); sister, Alleece Redelsperger Stone; and grandmother, Edna Redelsperger; special friend, Lisa Nolta; special "Good Guy" friend, Barron Brazil; as well as many other relatives and friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Redelsperger College Fund, do Chase Merritt Co., 450 Newport Center Drive, Suite 480, Newport Beach, CA 92660.
