William Jessie. "W. J." Orr, Class of '59

Played Guard,tackle, and linebacker on football team In general graduation and the proms were most memorable. The few football games we won and especially one in which I was captain are included in my hilights. The girls and my sweetheart cheerleader are amongst my warmest memories I attended four different colleges and universities: Austin Peay University/ Football Scholarship Columbus College/Jr College Diploma 1961/Optimist Club Scholarship/ Auburn University/ BS Accounting 1963 Georgia State University/ MBA 1970. Married Alice Faye Pait in 1962 We had two smart and beautiful children: Melody Kaye Orr(who is an M.D.) and Melissa Faye Orr Roberson (who is employed by the State of TX). Faye died of heart attack July 14, 1990. Married Barbara Alford (BHS 69) in 1998. Divorce is pending. I have three grandchildren: Steven Jesse Robinson Stephanie Jean Robinson, and Allyson Pait Roberson . Worked for Ingersoll Rand Company and affiliates for about 27 years in various financial positions. Lived in numerous locations in the USA and had extensive overseas assignments. I am retired and am presently looking for a home in the Columbus, GA area. I probably will find a low key, part-time job to help occupy my time. I am glad to be back in the Columbus area where my three sisters and one of my brothers live.
