Dewey “Radar” Orr, 94, passed away at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Calhoun City on Monday, January 25, 2021. Born December 26, 1926, in Webster County, he was the son of the late John Orr and the late Alma Williams Orr. He was of Baptist faith, and was a former member of Spring Hill Baptist Church. He was retired after working many years with Rockwell International. On July 21, 1984, he married Ruby Conner Orr, and they have enjoyed over 36 years together. He loved to work in his yard and mow the grass. He could be described as a “workaholic” because he was always finding something to do. He loved when people came to visit, and the conversation would usually end up on politics. He grew up in an extremely large family. Radar was one of 16 kids, and he loved each and every one. Spending time with family meant the most to him, especially his grandkids and great-grandkids. He was blessed with a long life here on earth, but God has now called him Home, and he will be missed dearly by all who knew him.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to serve the Orr family.
A funeral service celebrating his life will be held on Friday, January 29, 2021, at 2:00pm at Pryor Funeral Home. There will also be a visitation on Friday from 1:00pm until service time at the funeral home. Bro. Roger Reeder will be officiating, with interment to follow at Montevista Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be Jeremy Broughman, Kris Rimmer, Daniel York, Mathew Lee, Andy York, and Joey Harper.
He leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Ruby Conner Orr; children, Sheila Chandler (William) of Vardaman, Sandra A. Rimmer (Kenneth) of Calhoun City, Brenda Bailey of Calhoun City, Angie Little (David) of Horn Lake, Gary Lee Orr of Bartlett, Donnie Orr (Beth) of Calhoun City, Janie York (Charles) of Slate Springs, Sandra Lee Warren of Eupora, and Allen “Bub” Hoggle (Wilma) of Mathiston; son-in-law, Matt Rimmer of Grenada, son-in-law, Alan Harper of AL; sisters, Martha Jean Smith of Coffeeville, Ruth Patridge of Biloxi, and Frances Harris of Mantee; grandchildren, Marty Chandler, Danielle Little, Beth Little, Mackenzie Westberry (Austin), Kristopher Rimmer (Marsha), Christina “Tina” Tabb (Caleb), Tonya Kirby (Derick), Jeremy Broughman (Paula), Justin Broughman (Brittany), Andy York (Barbie), Daniel York (Ginger), Thomas Rimmer, Tyler Rimmer, Tamarie Rimmer, Chris Hoggle, Courtney Hoggle, Jennifer Pankey (Josh), and Joey Harper (Katie); great-grandchildren, Andy Chandler, Luke Havard, Layne Westberry, Greyson Westberry, Brandon Rimmer, Christian Rimmer, Katy Tabb, Anna Claire Kirby, Mylee Kirby, Tyler Kirby, Madison Carson (Jacob), Kayson Broughman, Lexi Broughman, Kylee Fletcher, Keith York, Hunter York, Allie York, Tyler York, Tristen York, Dakota York, Lilli Grace Harper, Debra Pankey, and Jace Pankey; great-great-grandchildren, Sawyer and Dawson Carson.
