Condolences to the Orlandini Family. I remember when Rich Teerlink, CEO of Harley-Davidson, asked me if I knew Lou. Rich said they spent time together in the Army in a Korean fox hole. I gave Lou a call and we both spent the day with Rich at the HD headquarters. Rich said "I have an open door policy here at my office" (he did not have a door anyone could walk into his office). I also remember great times working with Lou at Old Orchard and Lake Forest Walgreens. I'm fortunate to have been in Lou's company. Blessing and Prayers to you All.

is this the same guy that went to northern illinois state teachers college in the mid 50's-who I remember with affection--he managed the school snack shop in the evenings and I worked there as a waiter--he was one great guy--sorry for your loss--arne

You have my deepest sympathy. Lou was a schoolmate of mine in small town Northbrook. We kept in touch through the years via the internet. He will be missed by all that knew his love and kindness. My he Rest In Peace with the love of his life.

We have been next door neighbors for 28 years. I had many chats with Lou over the fence while our dogs barked at each other. He was always engaged and interested in what was happening in Northbrook, having lived here since the 1960s (I believe), back when Shermer Road was a two-lane dirt road. If you wanted to know anything about Northbrook, Lou was the man to ask. What I remember most was his love for his wife, Ingrid. I would see them on their dual riding lawn mowers, or sitting side by side after dinner on the patio, chatting and enjoying their beautiful yard. Lou was always immaculately dressed too. I don't think I ever saw him in anything other than a collared dress shirt and dress pants, even after he retired. (I might have seen him once in lounge pants getting the mail.) He was a good neighbor and will be greatly missed.
