FAREWELL TO TWO FINE CONTINENTAL RESIDENTS AND MILITARY VETERANS
Submitted by Randy Stegemerten
LYLE ORR JR. was born on December 26, 1942 in Youngstown, OH. Lyle served in the Army for two years then in the Reserves as a Special Forces Green Beret during Vietnam conflict. He was a business owner (Service Master) started by his father Lyle Sr. in the 1950’s. He retired at the age of 59 to do what he loved the most, serving his Lord and Savior Jesus through various ministries, Gideon’s, hospitals, jails, prisons, etc. He was known for his great smile, positive attitude and love for Jesus. He moved to Continental Country Club with his wife of 36 1/2 years, Kathleen, where he began a unique friendship with Mike Sedlak. Lyle leaves behind his wife Kathleen, two sons, one daughter, eight grand-children, four great grand-children, one brother and nieces and nephews along with an untold number of friends. Kathleen (Kathy) Orr still lives at Continental on Seminole Path (330-507-1753).
Lyle’s friend, MICHAEL SEDLAK, was born on February 19, 1925 in West Mifflin, PA. Mike joined the Navy at the age of 17 and was a WWII and Korean War Veteran on a destroyer escort. He moved to Continental in 1983 on Robin Road with his wife Joyce who passed away in April of 2006. He leaves behind one brother in PA, two nephews in CA and OH, one niece and several great nephews. He was very knowledgeable and handy. He had a rough exterior at times but big-hearted and known by many. Mike passed away on December 9, 2020 only four days after his good Continental friend Lyle Orr.
The community honored honor Ernie Meyers at the Veteran’s Memorial [2/2/2021]
Sad news: On January 15th, 2021 we lost another of our CCC Veterans. William “Bill” Gray passed away at a family residence in Pennsylvania. Bill and his wife Rita moved back to PA due to health issues and to be with family. Bill was one of our founders and a driving force in planning and forming the CCC Veterans Association. As our first Commander he was
instrumental in the planning and building of the Memorial that we enjoy today.
On the morning of January 18th, 2021, Ernie Meyers, our current Vice-Commander and good friend, passed away due to an illness. Ernie was also a member of our current CCC Board of Directors.
As I am sure that these two great men and veterans will be welcomed in Heaven with open arms; they will be truly missed here by all who knew them.
