May 7, 1963 ~ December 24, 2017 (age 54)

Charles Popio, 54, passed away Sunday, December 24, 2017 after a 9 month intense struggle with metastatic melanoma. He was born May 7, 1963, in Akron, Ohio to Peggy and Anthony Popio. He graduated from Revere High School in 1982 and attended Cedarville University. Chuck took great pride in working for the Summit Metro Parks for 30 years. He was also a registered Bike Patrol volunteer for the parks clocking in 3000 hours. 

His was a quiet life, filled with simple pleasures- he appreciated a witty phrase, a well mowed field, and always, time spent outdoors enjoying nature. He deeply loved “the far sky and the smiling land.”

Chuck is survived by his parents, and sister, Mary Popio
