Larry Joseph Orme, 72, of Louisville, formerly of Corydon, died Friday, March 11, 2011 in Brandon, Florida. He was born July 29, 1938, in New Albany, to the late James Melvin and Ethelda Rhoades Orme. He was the founder and president of Carousel Foods, Inc., was the co-founder of Old Capitol Cleaners, the Old Capitol Inn Best Western Hotel, Restaurant and Lounge and Frisch's Big Boy all in Corydon, was the founder and owner, with his wife, of Pop's Rib Bones Restaurant in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and later in life he led the Orme and Reas families to participate in Storm Service, Inc. in providing food, shelter and comfort to people involved in natural disasters. He was also a co-founder of the National Independent Concessionaires Association and a member of the Hurstbourne Baptist Church in Louisville.

Larry always recognized the good in each of the people whose lives he touched. Ever so gently he encouraged each of us to put forth our best and introduced us to a quality or talent we had hidden. He was a teacher by example and took many risks in order to do the right thing, in all instances. In the continued spirit of Larry and the Miller family, his family will continue the fair business, which was inherited from Olivia's father, Chet Miller.

Survivors include his wife, Olivia Ruth Miller Orme; his son, Michael Anthony Orme (Diane) of Corydon; his daughter, Cheryl Elaine Orme Reas (Dennis) of Corydon; his grandchildren, Jeremy, Joshua (Beth) and Isaac (Brittany) Orme and Blake (Amy) and Kyle Reas; his great grandchildren, Alexis and Bailey Orme and Abram Reas; his brothers, Melvin, Donald, Dennis, Gary and Randy and his sisters, Bonnie and Patty.

Funeral services will be at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, March 19, 2011 at the New Life Christian Church, 8090 Tandy Road, Lanesville, Indiana 47136. Entombment will be in the Kraft-Graceland Memorial Park in New Albany, Indiana.

Visitation will be from 12:00 - 8:00 p.m. Friday at Beanblossom-Cesar Funeral Home in Corydon, Indiana and after 11:00 a.m. Saturday at the church.

The family requests that expressions of sympathy be made to the Jefferson Street Baptist Center, 733 East Jefferson Street, Louisville, Kentucky 40202.

Pallbearers will be Jeremy, Joshua and Isaac Orme and Blake and Kyle Reas. The honorary pallbearer will be Billy Taylor.
