January 26, 1949 — June 9, 2020

David Paul Orscheln, 71, of Tipton, Missouri, passed away Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at his residence.

He was born January 26, 1949, in Boonville, Missouri, the son of the late Otto Carl and Clara Anna Marie (Diehl) Orscheln.

He was a 1967 graduate of Tipton High School.

David served in the United States Army National Guard during the Vietnam War.
