Longtime Porter County Council member Robert “Bob” Poparad, 64, died early Friday after a long battle with lung cancer.
Poparad, D-1st, was first elected to the County Council in 2002, following his service on the Burns Harbor Town Council. While on the Town Council, Poparad helped guide the town through the devastating blow from Bethlehem Steel’s bankruptcy in 2001. The steelmaker was the lion’s share of the town’s tax base.
