There are great coaches and then there are those who are statue worthy.
 
The busiest place in Hilton Coliseum Tuesday, the day Johnny Orr passed away, was right at the feet of Johnny Orr's statue that stands just in front of Johnny's restaurant.

And the picture all the fans wanted to take was right in front of the legend's statue, with flowers piled up for him.

Johnny Orr leaves much more behind in Hilton Coliseum than a statue and the trophy cases in the hallway.
 
"Every person has a special place in their heart for Johnny if they were part of that era and it's just sad losing him," says Cyclone fan Sherry Grice from Ankeny.

Johnny Orr was 86 years old when he passed Tuesday.
