THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Charles Chuck Paro age 71, of Menominee, Michigan, son of David and Ida (DeMolen) Paro passed away peacefully on Saturday May 17, 2014, at Bay Area Medical Center, with his family at his side.
He was born in Ewen, Michigan on August 16, 1942. Chuck graduated from Bergland High School and attended Western Michigan University. He served four years in the Navy during Vietnam and was stationed in Alaska during the earthquake. Afterwards, he began his career with the telephone company in Kalamazoo and later transferred to Iron Mountain, where he met his wife, Sue.
Chuck was a huge Green Bay Packer fan. He enjoyed singing at Church and weddings, and would call to sing Happy Birthday to his children. One of his greatest passions in life was ice cream! He will be missed by all who knew him.
