Services for Bob Orr, 90, were held Saturday, June 9, 2012, in Phillips & Luckey Chapel, with the family conducting services. Burial was in I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Rockdale.

Mr. Orr died Wednesday, June 6, in Richards Memorial Hospital with his family at his side.

He was born March 15, 1922, in Agua Dulce to Robert Samuel and Daisy Mae (Lynn) Orr.

Mr. Orr entered the U.S. Army as a trainee to be a tank driver. He was discharged and became a heavy equipment operator in Bandera.

Later they moved to Jewitt and began ranching, while commuting to Rockdale to work at Alcoa. He was supervisor of the construction of homes in Rockdale's Westwood Addition and worked as a master carpenter for Alcoa.

Around 1951, they moved to Rockdale and were founding members of Meadowbrook Baptist Church where he served as a deacon.

Mr. Orr was active in building the Tabernacle for the Highland Lakes Baptist Encampment. He built a greenhouse in Rockdale and grew mums in several different colors for local flower shops.

They enjoyed traveling and had visited all 50 states and several continents. Mr. Orr's fishing excursions took him to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Alaska, Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Marjorie, on Oct. 17, 2010; a son, Robert Orr Jr., on July 7, 1976; and a sister, Ella Mary Ann Orr Smith, in 2010.
