Hello, I am not related. I don't have access to Antone's obit, but his parents were most likely Michael Orlowski & Michelina Besekerski, from their marriage record. Census records show Antone having a sister Antoinette Orlowski. Her birth record shows the same parents.

Hope this helps. RP
The marriage record lists Mike's first name as Nick.

Burr Clark Is Bride Of Lawrence Orlowski

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Clark of Nekoosa have announced the marriage of their daughter, Miss Burr Clark to Lawrence Orlowski of Merrill, at Nekoosa's Congregational church parsonage last Wednesday. The Rev. C. A. O'Neill officiated.
Mrs. Harlan Fluno served as attendant for her sister and Mr. Fluno attended the groom, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Orlowski of Merrill. Following the dinner at the home of the bride's parents, the couple left for a wedding trip. They are to make their home at Merrill.
Antone's father, Mike Orlowski, most likely died between 1946 & 1952 in Merrill (the previous marriage notices). Mike is mentioned in the 1946 marriage, but his wife is the only parents mentioned in 1952.
This possibly could have been a brother to Antone's father, Mike......If so, his place of birth is listed here.
