John Orr

June 11, 1920 — March 29, 2013

John L. Orr was born in Turlock, Calif., and passed away in Placerville, Calif., which he had been a resident of since 1964. He was the youngest of three children born to Viola M. and John H. Orr. He grew up in Fair Oaks, Calif., joined the U.S. Navy during World War II and retired from Mather Air Force Base as a foreman of the sheet metal shop after 33 years. He and his wife moved to Coloma in 1970, where they developed Ponderosa Park and were members of the Coloma Lotus Volunteer Fire Department. They were avid square dancers and John was everyone’s handy man!

John is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Lois; his son, John R. Orr (and wife, Mary) of Mountain Ranch, Calif.; six grandchildren, Elizabeth Orr Leonard of Sacramento, Calif., Brian Orr of Aurora, Colo., Adam Reid of Bauxite, Ark., Ben Reid of West Sacramento, Calif., Paul Reid of Olivehurst, Calif., and Sarah Reid Olivehurst, Calif.; and eight great-grandchildren located in Bauxite, Ark., Aurora, Colo., Carlsbad, N.M., Sacramento, Calif., West Sacramento, Calif., and Olivehurst, Calif.

“Dad was a loving and devoted husband, fantastic father and the best grandpa ever.”

Per John’s request, all services will be private. Online condolences may be posted at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com.
