James Ronald "Ronnie" Orr was born on October 7, 1947 to James M. and Maycel H. Orr. Ronnie was the oldest of four children. He went to heaven on Friday, November 19th, 2021 in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
Ronnie graduated from El Dorado High School in 1965. He later attended the University of Arkansas and Louisiana Tech. He served our country as a member of the United States Navy. After an honorable discharge from service, he began his working career with Monsanto Company and El Dorado Chemical Company. Later, he made many new friends with a sales position for Set Point Company.
Lots of fun was enjoyed on the fishing waters, golf courses, and simple times of watching sports with others. He was blessed to have friends from all walks of life.
We have to understand we can only keep him alive if the love we felt for him and the love he felt for us is somehow manifested in our lives. Ronnie will leave such a void in many lives. For Patricia R. Orr, his wife, children Haley D. Chapman and Matthew Orr, grandchildren, Reagan and Reese Chapman, his step-children Molly and Emily and grandchildren Andrew, Michael, Emma and Lilly.
His siblings Sue Rainwater (Paul) of Crossett, Nancy Glenn (Mark) of Bossier City, LA and Don Orr (Renee’) of El Dorado, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
He will be sorely missed and we are heartbroken to see his passing from this world. Our consolation is that Ronnie left us to be with the God he loved.
Visitation will be Saturday, November 27th from 11:00 - 1:00 P.M. in the chapel of Young's Funeral Directors.
