Obituary: Rod Allen Orr

Rod Allen Orr was born (Pearl Harbor Day) Dec. 7, 1956, passed away July 10, 2016 at Barton Hospital.

Rod was a huge fan of Lake Tahoe.

He was a great friend/father/brother/mentor and anybody who knew him would agree he was one of a kind. He loved walking his dogs in the meadow, going to Lakeside to make sports bets, outdoor tailgate parties, and the lake. Survived by mother Carol Orr-Hammond, daughter: Kodee Orr-Smith, son-in-law: Colton Marker and granddaughter: Aspen Ray Marker. Rod also left behind aunts, uncles, nephews and cousins as well as many, many friends who he considered family. Rod would like it if whenever you hear a Rolling Stones song you think of him. Celebration of Life will be held at the Moose Lodge from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6. Ashes will be spread Aug. 9 at 2:30 p.m. off of Newport Beach.
