Bruce Gordon Orr, loving husband of Linda Marie Orr, beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend, died Tuesday December 2, 2014 from injuries sustained in a helicopter accident in North Salt Lake, Utah.  He was 63.

He is survived by his wife of 41 years, 5 children, 19 grandchildren, and 1 soon-to-be great-grandchild.  Bruce loved the Gospel of Jesus Christ and people.  When the family needed him, he was there with help, advice and was the rock and cornerstone of his family.

Bruce was born September 29, 1951 in Brooks, Alberta, Canada to Gordon D. Orr and Jeannine Ockey.    He was an experienced private pilot and very passionate about flying.  He earned an Engineering Degree from Central Washington University and became a capable airplane mechanic.  As part owner of Flight Ready Aviation he got to go play every day for work.

Bruce was in love with his wife, cared for his children and was proud of their accomplishments.  He preached the Gospel in the Cumorah Mission, served as Bishop and currently served in the Salt Lake Temple with his devoted wife.

He blessed our lives.  We draw strength from our faith in knowing we will see him again.

The funeral will be Saturday, December 6 at 1:30 PM in the Tooele South Stake Center, 1025 Southwest Drive, Tooele.  A viewing is scheduled the night before from 6 - 8 PM at Tate Mortuary, 110 S Main Street, Tooele.

A trust fund has been setup in his name at Key Bank in Tooele for those that are interested.
