Ronald Edward Para

February 17, 1940 - September 06, 2017

Ronald Edward Para, 77 of Stickney, IL passed on into Heaven on September 6, 2017, with his devoted wife of 49 years, Diane by his side at Lakewood Nursing Center in Plainfield, IL.  Loving son and step-son of the late Albert Para, Marie Para Sibrava and Roy Sibrava. Dear brother of Loretta Swedberg (Larry). Loving father of Pamela Para Colley (Keith Haney), Jennifer Boyajian (Jeffrey) and Heidi Mulford (Douglas). Doting grandfather of Nicholas (Amanda), Brittany and Madison Colley, Joshua and Jenna Boyajian, and Katlyn and Kyle Mulford. Admired uncle to many nieces and nephews. Ron was a hardworking retiree from C.J. Saporito Plating, Cicero. He had a passion for fishing and passed that love down especially to his grandson, Joshua. He enjoyed crappie fishing on Lac Courte Orielles in
Hayward, WI, where he and his family spent all their summer vacations. He especially enjoyed fishing with his grandson, Joshua.  Ron loved to work in his garden, tinker in his garage and work on his boat the "Jen-Hi". Ron enjoyed spending his free time at some of his favorite places, Tastee Donut and Steak ‘n Egger in Cicero, and Jack's Tool Rental in Berwyn. He was rarely seen without his Jack's hat on. He had the kindest blue eyes, the biggest smile, the gift of gab and he will be greatly missed.
