Julio Cesar Parra Gonzalez was born on September 16, 1977 in Maturin, State of Monagas, Venezuela, to Julio and Consuelo (Gonzalez Sanchez) Parra Velasquez. After high school he went on to earn his Associates Degree in Tourism. Julio was united in marriage on August 2, 2003 to Rebecca E. Schultz at Christ Congregational Church, Clintonville. The couple met while Rebecca was studying in Venezuela. They first lived in Milwaukee, then in 2005 moved to Madison, and in 2009 settled in Clintonville. Julio worked as a CNA for several years at Greentree Health & Rehabilitation Center and then he was employed for some time at Manawa Nursing Home. He also worked as a banquet server at the Oneida's Radisson Hotel in his spare time. Currently, he was employed at Capital Credit Union in Greenville. Julio liked spending time outdoors, bird watching and hiking in the Venezuelan mountains. He had an amazing memory of movies and people.
