Barry Jack Orr

August 12, 1954 — November 28, 2022



Barry Jack Orr, age 68, of Canton, GA passed away November 28, 2022, after a nearly 2-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Barry was a near graduate of the University of South Carolina and an avid Gamecocks fan and businessman. He, with his wife, Ann, established BAMCO Supply in 1991 in the confines of their basement. Barry successfully grew BAMCO Supply over the last 31 years with the support of his loyal customers and many family members that have worked for BAMCO over the years. 


Barry is survived by his wife of 44 years, Ann (Bell), his children Melanie Daniel (Clifford) and Christopher Orr (Melissa), his grandchildren: Trent Daniel, Ansley Daniel, Will Daniel, Lyla Orr and Lorelai Orr. Siblings: Delores Tipton (Ralph), Wilma Orr, Larry Orr (Jackie), Michael Orr (Lisa), and Ruby Smith (Ray), many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews. Barry was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Genett Orr, brothers Denny Orr, Clarence “Doodle” Orr, Jim “Tiny” Orr, sister-in-law Jane Orr and grand-daughter Taylor Ann Daniel.


To know Barry was to love him. Whether you met him at a concrete plant, soccer field, restaurant, doctors’ office, or fishing boat, you could quickly tell where you stood with him and what his passions were. Barry loved his family fiercely and there was not a subject that he enjoyed talking about more than his grandchildren. Barry loved spending days out on the Gulf of Mexico on the “Big John” with Captain Todd Allen at the helm surrounded by his kids, grandkids, and close friends. Barry was a generous man in many ways, though sharing the bounties from his garden with the various people he encountered was one of his favorite past-times. Barry often felt the need to pass along words of advice and wisdom whether you appreciated it or not, these were affectionately known as “Barry Talks,” those of us who were on the receiving end find ourselves as the lucky ones today. In Lieu of Flowers, when you think of Barry, pick up the phone and call your loved ones or better yet take them a basket of tomatoes or peppers.


The family is welcoming you to a remembrance of Barry on Monday December 5, 2022 from 5:30pm - 8:00pm at Canton Funeral Home located at 10655 E Cherokee dr. Canton Ga 30115
