I am sad today to hear of Jerry’s death. He was a classmate of mine at Douglas County High School. I remember his smile and his laughter. I wish his family peace.

Rest in Peace, Jerre Orr! It was heartbreaking to hear of your passing. Joey, my heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow. I am sending you my deepest sympathy and condolences on the demise of your daddy. I will be keeping you in my prayers for comfort, peace, and strength.

My maiden name was Donna Helton, and went to Douglasville Elementary School about the same time as Jerre. I remember competing against him in a spelling bee in about 1963. He was good at spelling and tough competition, but somehow I won. Fond memories of him being a super nice guy. I also remember his mom being at the school a lot in support of what was happening at school and she was possibly a “room mother”, organizing activities or parties for the classroom. Sorry to hear that he passed away unexpectedly; my husband (Jerry) passed away in July 2019, in his sleep, so I can relate, and you have my deepest condolences. RIP Jerre
