Bill OrrBill Orr - April 4, 1935 - August 21, 2013

I believe there is never a time that I enter the "old cabin" door without a Bill Orr Fall Turkey hunt 1993glance to find if he may be sitting in his rocker at the base of the stair. Bill was and will always be, for many of us, "The Cabin"--its indelible greeting and goodness personified; a Bev Doolittle-like presence sketched into the back ground of its every image, past, present and future, and, the comforting drone in support of all its magical and larger-than-life stories.

"Death ends a life but not a relationship"; and, so mote it be, Bill Orr is forever a part of our tartan's proud tell of who and how we are---members all!
