PARRY SOUND, Ont. -- Douglas Orr, the father of legendary Boston Bruins defenceman Bobby Orr, has died. He was 82.

Much like his son, Douglas Orr was a terrific athlete who excelled in hockey and track. But rather than pursuing a professional career, he ended up joining the navy and served as a packer of dynamite at a munitions factory.
