Carlyle Robert “Bob” Orms and Janet Satterly Orms, of Danville, died Thursday, November 25, 2021. Bob was born Jan 16, 1954 in Louisville to Carlyle Robert and Norma Jean Faris Orms. Janet was born December 16, 1955 in Harrodsburg to Ordra and Margaret Louise Cummins Satterly. Bob was a legal consultant and Janet worked for Harrodsburg Healthcare and Rehabilitation. They were preceded in death by a daughter, Fallon Louise Orms, as well as Bob’s sisters Dee Fromel and Lalla Orms-Roarke.

They are survived by their daughters, Caroline Grace Hill (Benjamin) and Natalie Faith Orms (Benjamin Slone), and granddaughters Alice Louise Hill and Lyla Joan Hill. Bob is also survived by his sister Kathy Wilfong (Jim) and brothers, David Orms (Cheryl) and Tom Orms (Lynn). Janet is also survived by her brother, Donald Satterly, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Janet loved fiercely: both plants and animals. She was an avid gardener, her house often overflowing with green growing things and four legged friends. She observed nature keenly; she knew every crackle, finch, and raccoon by name and delighted in their antics. She cared deeply for her daughters and granddaughters, who called her Mimi (“me-me”), showering them with affection, stuffed animals, and shared fashion acumen. After all of this, she had excess love and energy, which she shared with her nursing patients; she worked the night shift and through the pandemic to make sure every patient was comfortable and cared for. She enjoyed music, especially rock and roll. Her family and friends will never forget her delight at seeing a bald eagle soaring overhead or her sense of freedom and peace exploring a rock and roll concert, and she will be sorely missed.

Those that called Bob brother saw him roaming the country on his motorcycle, exploring the Florida Keys for treasure and trophy fish/lobsters. They saw him dunking, spiking, serving, and otherwise scoring in every athletic endeavor that came his way. Those that called him friend saw him light up at the mention of any adventure, game, or debate—especially the ones where he could win. Those that called him Dad or Baba (“Bob-uh”) saw him cooking legendary breakfasts and spending every waking moment searching tirelessly for ways to make us smile. Those that were fortunate enough to experience many of these perspectives deeply appreciate—and will sorely miss—the threads of generosity, fearlessness, and love that defined the father, grandfather, brother, and friend we will carry in our hearts forever.

The funeral will be held 11:00 am, Thursday, December 2 at Stith Funeral Home in Danville with Rev. Greg Hatfield officiating. Visitation will be 4:00 to 7:00 pm, Wednesday, December 1st at Stith Funeral Home in Danville. Interment will be in Springhill Cemetery in Harrodsburg. The family suggests donations to Isaiah House or Compassionate Friends.
