Michael was born October 22, 1951 in New Castle. He was the son of the late Steve and Josephine (Konstal) Orlando. Michael was married to the former Helen Stackiewicz. They were married on October 18, 1973 and were married for 49 years. Mr. Orlando was of the Roman Catholic faith and attended Holy Spirit Parish. Michael was a graduate of New Castle High School, class of 1969. Mr. Orlando worked for several local companies in maintenance, those being the former W. R.
