As I understand it, Judith was married to Benjamin.
Edita was not, but was the mother of his son.
I could be wrong but I think that's the way it goes.

Benjamin was engaged to Julie Snider at the time of his death.
They would have married if he'd have lived.
She is now a film producer living in Nevada with her husband Dana Mennie.

I'm not sure exactly who Judith Orr is but she is on every Facebook page regarding the Cars. She might have been an earlier wife. Ben has one son by a woman named Editha (or something like that), in the 90's. Maybe look Judith up on facebook.

Benjamin Orr is my favorite singer. I still listen to The Lace and The Cars. He is the worlds greatest guitar player. He sings with a beautiful voice. I miss you Benjamin Orr!

Who is Judith Orr? Why does she carry Bens name - did he marry her..who the hell is she??? Why the hell is Connie Hamzy there, she was a skankie roadie groupie from what I`ve read in bio`s? Can anyone answer that? Oh my...Ben could have done soooo much better than what I see in these pictures - gee they must have had good hearts cause none of them were much to boast about! Not in there early or old years. If he only made it to Australia!
