====================

Bob Pasero, a local community leader and former Orland police chief has passed away from cancer. He was 64.  People are remembering his life and legacy.

Bob Pasero remains beloved to many in the community, and he leaves behind a powerful legacy.

After six years as police chief, Pasero retired in 2010 to become a community organizer. He was the face of fallen local veterans, as the organizer of the Motor-icicle Run, an annual labor of love.

As president of his church, Pasero also served free soup for the homeless, at the church's annual soup bowl. He even helped many in the community exchange their marriage vows, as an ordained minister. But perhaps what people remember most about Pasero was his love for his family.
