Richard Paul Caron was born in Calumet, MI on June 28, 1948. He was a firefighter and hockey player (slow puck). He worked at Northern Hardwoods. He loved to make stuff out of wood. He restored a very old fire truck that he completely took apart and rebuilt. Richard fought in the Vietnam War and came home to prove that he was stronger than some. That, in itself, was a challenge for anyone who came home. He taught us to live life to the fullest and know that life is too short to take anything for granted. He died January 26, 1992.
