Fishersville - Charles "Chas" Roman Pauly, 71, husband of Susan Marie (Vande Loo) Pauly, passed away Saturday, April 13, at his home in Fishersville, Virginia. Chas was born April 16, 1947 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, son of the late Leon and Estelle (Kummer) Pauly.
He received his bachelor's degree from St. Norbert's College in DePere, WI and his M.D. degree from Loyola Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago. He completed his residency in Dermatology at the University of Michigan. Chas and Sue were married in 1970 and settled in Waynesboro, VA in 1976. With Sue he raised four children, founded Blue Ridge Dermatology and became a pillar in the community. Chas served everyone who had the blessing to meet him.

He was the foundational development chairman for the Valley Alliance for Education, now known as The Community Foundation where he was currently a Board Member.
He was always up for spontaneous adventure, and loved to travel and meet people. He spent time with his grandchildren who eagerly took part in "Grandpa School". When not serving others, he enjoyed time with friends, skiing, playing golf, tennis and cards, biking, kayaking, sailing, gardening, telling stories and playing practical jokes.
