David C. Orlowski
David C. Orlowski, born to Marie Alberta (Morin) and Chester Orlowski on April 17, 1935, passed away at the age of 85 on March 29, 2021 in his home in Punta Gorda, Fla. An avid Green Bay Packers fanatic, he remained true to his roots, spending the summer months in his Minocqua, Wis., home. He was a strong supporter of many local charities and the Punta Gorda Symphony, which he enjoyed attending on a regular basis. He loved golf, fishing, hunting, and photographing the beautiful nature surrounding him everywhere his travels took him. After graduating from Marquette University, he found his passion as a skilled entrepreneur and inventor, founding Inpro/Seal, an innovative manufacturing company, and actively participating as a member of the Hydraulics Institute. More recently, Dave found much enjoyment in meeting The Leftovers at the Twin Isles Country Club every week.
Dave is predeceased by his parents, daughter Andrea Orlowski, wife Janice, wife Delta Christine (“Chris”), and brothers John and James.
He is survived by his brother Michael Orlowski (wife Doris), sister in-law Mary Orlowski (James’s wife), daughters Diana Orlowski Coe (husband Thomas) and Jennifer Snyder (husband Bryan), and grandchildren Sarah and Taylor Robertson, Julie Michalek (husband Steve), and Jon Coe.
