Aaron Matthew Orr

November 25, 1985 — February 26, 2015

Aaron Matthew Orr passed away on February 26, 2015, with his wife Jamie by his side, due to a severe brain injury sustained in a snowboarding accident. He was a seasoned snowboarder and had been wearing a helmet. Aaron was born November 25, 1985 in Sacramento, California, to Matthew and Kimberly Orr. He was their third child. He would soon be joined by seven more brothers and sisters. The family moved to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1998, a farm they would call home for many years. Aaron was an active child and daredevil who enjoyed many sports as early as five years old. He graduated from Beaver Dam High School, where he was a member of the track and football teams. He had a kind heart, often taking the blame for something one of his siblings had done, or comforting team mates when mistakes were made. Aaron served as a missionary for the LDS church in Jamaica. He then met and married Jamie Christensen in 2006. They worked hard to finish their college degrees, and had three beautiful children who were and are their pride & joy. Aaron was a devoted father and husband who always found time to show his children fun and love, and was adored by both them and his wife. Aaron graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh with a degree in Computer Science. He was in the beginning stages of a successful career as a software developer at JJ Keller in Neenah, Wisconsin, and was admired by co-workers for his humor and leadership abilities. He was involved in his community, spending countless hours with youth groups as a scout and church leader. Known for his intelligence, good nature, and uncanny ability to tease his friends, family and co-workers, Aaron touched many lives and will always be remembered. Aaron was an organ donor, and his passing has already provided life-saving transplants to many in need. He is survived by his wife Jamie, his children Lucy (7), Benny (4) and Elenora (4 months); his parents Matthew and Kimberly Orr; grandparents Douglas and Delores Lewis and Bill and Peggy Mashburn; nine siblings; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 7th at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Church in Neenah, Wisconsin (115 Castle Oak Drive). Visiting hours will be held prior to the funeral, beginning at 9:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to college funds for the children.
