ORCE, ROBERT JOHN, passed away on January 5, 2015 in Katy, Texas. Bobby was born on December 15, 1954 in Bronxville, New York to Stephen and Mazie Orce (both deceased). He grew up in New York working on cars and cheering for the Yankees. In 1983 Bobby moved to Houston, Texas where he continued a path in the auto repair business. A lifelong dream of his was to own his own auto repair shop and in April of 2010, he did just that. He was the proud owner of LuckyDog Auto Repair in Willis, Texas.
