Remembering Two Old Crayne Friends

Marvin Duane Ordway, 79, of Crayne, died Aug. 2, 2014 at his home.
He was retired from the U. S. Air Force and was a member of Crayne Community Church.  He is survived by a son, Michael Ordway of Texas; a brother, Carl Ordway of Marion, a sister, Mary Evelyn Ordway of Marion. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Virgil and Iva Scott Ordway.
A celebration of life service was held at Crayne Community church.

This is a picture of Marvin at the church picnic in Oct. of 2013.  He was a good friend to all his neighbors in Crayne and everyone was always greeted with a friendly hello or a wave of hand as he went by.  

Rest in peace Marvin, you will be missed very much.

Robert "Bobby" Rorer, 70, of Marion died July 28, 2014 at his home. 

 He is survived by a twin sister, Frances Rorer of Marion.  

Bobby was preceded in death by his parents, Robin and Mary Adams Rorer; a brother, James T. Rorer; and a sister, Mary Catherine Rorer.

 I had known Bobby most all my life, as he and Frances started to school at Crayne the same year that I did and we continued going to school together for the rest of our school years.  

Bobby attended Crayne Community Church and was one of our Church family.  He is buried in the Chapel Hill Cemetery near the rest of his family.  Rest in peace Bobby.
