In Memory

Rev Bill Orr

07 Dec 1935 - 01 Jul 2021

Rev Dr Bill Orr dedicated his life to the service of his saviour, Jesus Christ. He was a Baptist Minister for most of his working life, after starting out in London City Mission.  He served churches in Irvine, Glasgow, Hopeman and Hunslet, Leeds before retiring to just outside Edinburgh. For many years he continued to preach and teach in churches across Scotland.
 
Bill was married to Isobel in 1961 and they would have celebrated their Diamond wedding anniversary in September.  He was a loving and adoring father to Billy, Craig, Andrew and Heather, their spouses and  especially his 10 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild who were a source of great pride and affection to him.
 
Bill supported 2 of his children - Craig and Heather, along with Heather's family - Steve, Liam and Kara as they served on the OM ships Doulos and Logos Hope.  He and Isobel spent time on the Doulos themselves in Asia, teaching and counseling the young people on board.
 
More recently he supported Liam and Kara to go back to Logos Hope and serve on board.  So the ship ministry was always very dear to his heart.
 
Thank you for your gift to the ship ministry in Memory of Bill it is greatly appreciated.
