Born in Ibadan, Nigeria, the third child of Col. James Ian Francis Fraser-Orr "Chris" and Winifred Agnes Audry Butler "Tiggy."
Robin's father served in the British Army which required them to move around frequently during his childhood. In addition to Nigeria, they lived in England, Germany, Kenya, Berlin and Northern Ireland.
Robin attended boarding school in England and excelled at drama, rugby and art. He received a degree in Fine Art and Geology at the University in Portsmouth, England. He then spent a year in the Voluntary Services Overseas in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe.) He later went on to train and work as a fine art restorer in England, San Francisco and New Orleans and later opened his own gallery in New Orleans. Before retiring, Robin spent many years as a Legal Medical Coordinator at Southern Orthopedic Specialists. He was an artist, a gentle spirit, the life of the party and loved by many.
He was preceded in death by his parents Chris and Tiggy and is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Patrice Tircuit Fraser-Orr; daughter Kate (Nathan) and granddaughter Clara; three stepsons Christian, Matthew (Jackie) and Adam Dabdoub and grandchildren Madelyn, Max and Margaret; sister Claudia (Chris) Good, her daughter Pia; sister Phillipa "Pippa" Mishlawi and her son Nadim and countless friends and family.
