Orlando was known for speaking his mind and as someone who you could always count on the help with whatever task was needed to be performed. Orlando was also an active volunteer in the community of Mira Mesa and was named “Volunteer of the Year” in 1989. He served on the Fourth of July Committee, Mira Mesa Landscape Maintenance District, Town Council, and the RSVP as a patrolman.

The above history was taken from the Mira Mesa Town Council Volunteer of the Year page, by Jeff and Pam Stevens.
