In Memorium: Glenn Parker
My great uncle, Glenn G. Parker, passed away of February 14, 1974. He was a Perkins Township Trustee for twelve years. Uncle Glenn was instrumental in helping to establish Fire Station No. 1 on Bogart Road, and Fire Station No. 2 at Campbell and Bell Streets. The clippings above (click on the image for a larger view) were recently found in Parker family notebooks. They show some of the fire equipment that was purchased during Glenn Parker's tenure as a Perkins Township trustee. Flags at all three of the Perkins Fire Stations were at half-mast on the day of the funeral of Glenn Parker.
