George William Orr, II

Leading and influencing others came natural to George Orr. Described as “everyone’s hero,” George was a positive influence on his family and friends.

George William Orr, II, of Mansfield passed away Tuesday, January 28, 2014 in Kindred Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He was 44.

The son of George W. and Bertha (Swain) Orr, George was born January 9, 1970 in Sandusky, and graduated from Sandusky high school.

Responsible, intelligent, and even a touch mischievous, George was someone who led by example. Hardworking, he was manager for Save A Lot, on Ashland Road, and also worked for Crackelbarrel.

Passionate about sports, George was a fantasy football fanatic, and cheered for the Miami Dolphins. A Lebron James fan, George’s favorite NBA team was the Miami Heat.

Described as a “sweet grouch”, George’s playful nature brought smiles to those around him.

He is survived by his children Aaliyah and Hunter Orr of Mt. Vernon, Morgan and Tacoma Orr of Butler and Levi Cochran of Mt. Vernon; mother Bertha Orr of Toledo; siblings Anthony (Darlene) Washington of Indianapolis, Indiana, Maria (Calvin) Powell of Toledo, and Kathy Orr Moore and her husband Albert of Groveport; special friends Megan Glasser, Treyvin “Bumpers” Glasser, Jennifer Orr and Sara Walker, Carter (Emma) Smith, Jerry (Judy) Slone, Mike, Pam, and Amanda Glasser, best friend Dwight Newton; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family; as well as his very close, Save A Lot friends.

He was preceded in death by his father George W. Orr.

The family will receive friends Monday, February 3, 2014 from 12pm-3pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where funeral services celebrating the life of George William Orr, II, will begin at 3 pm. Pastor JD Webb will officiate.

In lieu of flower, memorial contributions to the Orr Family (please make checks payable to Kathy Orr) to assist with George’s children’s education may be made through the funeral home.
