Donald R. Orner Jr.

Donald R. Orner Jr., 76, of Grandview Road, Altoona, passed away Friday at home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Altoona, son of the late Donald R. and Dorothy (Hauser) Orner.

Surviving are his wife, Joeanne (Chaney); four stepchildren: Anne Leonard, Rhonda Mosal, Robert Keith and John Keith, all of Altoona; as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is also survived by a daughter, Sherry Lamco, who more than two years ago rekindled her relationship with her father. Donald said this was one of the happiest moments of his life.

Donald was a graduate of Altoona High School and served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was an independent truck driver for 35 years and for the last 17 years had worked for Ollinger Bros. Trucking. He loved working in his garage and on trucks and spending time with his family, and he enjoyed his many pets.

At Donald’s request, there will be no service.

Arrangements are by Leslie E. Axe Funeral Home, 1520 Fourth St., Altoona.
