Orly was born at home in Lyons, Iowa on November 4, 1948, the son of Donald and Clara (Eislage) Campbell. He graduated in 1969 from Clinton High School. He married Marsha Ann Gladhill on January 10, 1998 in Clinton. His work career started very early in life, helping his father with his business in commercial fishing. He also worked at Snyders Produce. As an adult he worked for Clinton Corn Processing, Foley Construction, McCarthy-Bush Construction, Allied Barton, and G4S Security.

His hands were never idle, he loved making things in his spare time and his passion was fishing and his family. Orlin was most known for his huge garden he planted every year. Orlin never met a stranger; he was a gentle man who made friends wherever he went. He was very generous; he would gladly help anyone who was in need.

Survivors include his wife, Marsha; his sons, Brent (Tami) Tinderholt , Chad ( Cindy) Tinderholt, Tony (Bethany) Tinderholt, and Charles (Katarzyna) Parson; his daughters, Bobbi Howard and Rachael (Jonathan) Fink; 23 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren; several special friends who were like family, Carl, Jim, Linda, Michelle, Jennifer and Ashley; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. Orlin was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, Madonna Jacobsen and Jo Ann Fuidge, and brother, James Campbell.
