Leila Grace Orr Education Fund

With heavy hearts and profound sadness, we share the news of the untimely death of Michael Hugh Orr Jr. on April 20, 2022. Mike leaves behind three loves of his life; Leila, Jackson, and Kristy. Mike's priority was always to take the best care of his daughter and provide a life that would nurture her every need. We ask for contributions to invest in Leila Orr's life, endeavors, and future aspirations. All of the contributions collected will be placed in a 529 plan to one day be used for qualified education expenses such as college, K -12 tuition, apprenticeship programs, and student loan repayments. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. 

Michael was a loving son to Michael H. Orr, Sr., and Kimberly Tomlinson and a Dear grandson to Grace V. Orr and the late Edward W. Orr, and the late Robert and Wanda Tomlinson. Michael’s journey started on August 4, 1994 in Cape May where he lived with his mother. He developed a love for fishing from his father and spent his summer riding his bike and fishing with friends from sunrise to sunset. He fell in love with gardening from a teacher at his school, starting his first garden with his mother. He later moved to Mayfair with his father and spent his teenage years in northeast Philadelphia. Mike was a traveler, going wherever his heart took him. He was a jack of all trades and always had a hunger to learn more. He followed no rules or guidelines. When he had an idea or thought he pursued it with every fiber in his body. Mike worked for the bricklayers union local 1, where he continued to work until his death. He was so proud of his career and the union he worked for. His daughter Leila was the light of his life, his love for her carried him each and every day. They loved cooking together and he loved teaching her how. Michael was a survivor and persevered through every hardship. He spent his last three years with the love of his life, Kristy. He was a stepfather to Jackson and devoted every day to loving and care taking for Leila, Jackson, and Kristy. His favorite thing to do was to be a partner and father and to take care of others. Mike’s time on earth came to an end on April 20, 2022 at his home in Devon, Pennsylvania in his garden doing what he loved.
