There are many Orlo izms that started at a young age. One of Beth’s favorites is ‘acream’ for Ice Cream. One of Craig’s favorites is “pock’ for pocket.
Orlo graduated from Cambridge Isanti High School in June of 2019. He was a great high school student. Learning came easy to Orlo and he loved to learn. Orlo easily made friends throughout his school years.
