Orlando immigrated to America at the age of 16, where he became a master barber for over 65 years and was the proud owner of Romeo's Barber Shop of Westport/ Norwalk.

He was predeceased by his sister, Angelina Raco, and brother-in-laws Rocco Raco, Antonio Morabito, and Nicola Romeo. Funeral services will be held directly at St. Luke Church, 84 Long Lots Road, Westport on Thursday, July 16, 2020, at 11:30 a.m...
