First, to the family my condolences. Paro mentored me to run the ARC contract when I worked at SMDC. He taught me well about that contract. I also recall him stopping for cigarettes on that Nov 89 day at the drug store when the tornado hit. The boy warning him died... he got between the coke and Pepsi machine and survived. I told him when he told of this that this may be God’s way to quit smoking. I believe he did soon thereafter. He was a fun guy to work with. I am sitting here watching my Penn State team play Pitt and something told me .... check bing.... thinking of Paro I checked to see if he was still alive...... I was saddened to see this .... and I missed the service..... I work in MDA now.... soon thinking of retiring myself.... but I will let others know who knew Paro. God bless you all.
