Joseph “Photo Joe” Edward Orr, 45, Phoenix, AZ, died Sunday, December 24, 2017.
Born on September 22, 1972 in Detroit, Michigan. Joe was the dedicated Owner and Publisher of Arizona Sports & Lifestyle Magazine. He was a stand-up comedian at heart, but his true passion was to capture rare and unique moments and special memories on film for all to enjoy. He was an avid sports fan, and while he kept his love for Detroit’s teams, he embraced the teams of his adopted city of Phoenix.
He is survived by his sister Kristyn Rae Dahn (and her husband Rick) of Warren, Michigan; brother Jeffery S. Lemmerz (and his wife Gwen) of Pulaski, Tennessee; brother Dwayne E. Orr of Davison, Michigan; and step-mother Carole L. Orr of Posen, Michigan. Joe is uncle to Merissa, Elise, Benjamin, Olivia and Matthew and great uncle to Willis.
He is preceded in death by his parents Mary Kay Gigliotti (2007), James Edward Orr (2017) and sister Jennifer Kay Orr (2017).
A memorial service will be held on January 27, 2018 from 1-4pm at Legacy Funeral Home, 1374 N. Arizona Ave. Chandler, AZ 85225. Telephone 480.963.6200
