Orman moved to Denver at the age of 18 and worked in the Denver Stockyards; at 23 he moved to Stockton, California, and worked for a rubber company. Four years later he moved to Ulysses and worked for Columbian Chemicals at Hickok Carbon Black Plant. He retired in 1995. Orman met Betty Lou Oliver in 1958, which lived across the alley from him.
