Orlando was very proud to serve his country as a member of the United States Army Engineer Corps.  Orlando was a gifted athlete, scholar, outdoorsman, snowboarder, and held a Commercial Driver’s License and was employed by Sunset Trucking Company. Orlando will be remembered for his love of his family, courage, kindness, a shy mischievous crooked smile, and his twinkling eyes.  Rest in peace Orlando, you were loved every day of your life and will live in our hearts until we are all together again.
