Bobby Orf Family and Friends

The Bobby Orf #17 Scholarship was established in memory of one of Lafayette High School’s great hockey players who died December 16, 2003 after almost two years of fighting complications of a rare blood disease, HLH. Bobby was known as a person of great strength, courage and determination who played hockey the same way. Recently, a new scholarship has been added for students who have received services from St. Louis Friends of Kids with Cancer. Recipients of the Bobby Orf #17 Scholarship have all possessed the attributes that defined the life of Bobby Orf:

Bobby’s family and friends organize the Bobby Orf Memorial Golf Tournament each summer to raise funds for the scholarship programs and from time to time hold a benefit Spaghetti dinner with a poker tournament.
