James “Jim” Clifton Orr, III, of Kountze, died Sunday, April 17, 2022.  He was born on November 8, 1976, in Beaumont, to Mildred Bryant Orr Hawkins and James Clifton Orr, Jr.

Jim was the most loving and caring man in the world.  He would do anything for anybody.  Jim faced so many adversities in his life and overcame all of them.  He loved hunting and all outside sports and loved to cook, but he loved his family the best, especially his MaMa!  He was known by many as “Corky”, a high school nickname that just stuck.  Jim, you will be dearly missed by all.
