ORR: Gerald Clarence. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gerald Clarence Orr on June 4, 2021, at Hillcrest Place in Brandon, Manitoba. Gerald was born on July 27, 1935, at Lady Minto Hospital in Minnedosa, Manitoba to Clarence and Victoria Orr. He grew up on the family farm where he lived for 83 years until having a debilitating stroke. He received his education at Coldstream School, Franklin High School, and an Agricultural School in Brandon. He farmed with his father and did some work for neighbours. He also worked in a machine shop in Neepawa, Manitoba, and for CP Rail in Minnedosa, Manitoba. Gerald, his wife Maxine, and their two sons enjoyed living and working on the family farm. He took great pleasure in going to car shows and visiting with the people there, and going to the coffee shops to visit with his many friends in Franklin, Neepawa, Minnedosa, and Brandon. Gerald was predeceased by his parents, and his son Murray. Surviving on treasured memories are Gerald's wife Maxine, and his son Melvin.

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us
every day.
Unseen, unheard,
but always near.
Still loved, still missed,
and very dear.

  • I grew up with Gerald going to school at Franklin. During this time I have fond memories of our time. My life took a different turn from farming and we lost track of each other. Good memories. Condolences to Maxine and Melvin. Jim & Margie Murdock - Posted by: Jim Murdock (School mate) on: Jul 29, 2021
