Friends and fellow elected officials confirm the death of Missouri 38th Judicial Circuit Presiding Judge Mark Orr. He passed away Sunday after a battle with melanoma cancer.

Taney County Circuit Clerk Brenda Neal says Judge Orr continued to work despite his illness, and only missed one day last week…

Orr leaves behind his wife Sarah and 2 young daughters. Funeral services are pending.

Neal anticipates a state appointment to replace Orr, but says the associate circuit judges in Taney and Christian Counties are prepared to take on Orr’s docket until an appointment is made.
