GPK Obit

Marty,We have lost another ex-Parker who contributed a lot to the community - Ted Lewis.I'm am going to France to trace the route my father-in-law George Dunlop (of Vercheres and Kipps Streets) fought in WW2, and to try to find some of the graves of those brave Parkers who gave their lives for our freedom in WW1 and WW2. I hope to take photos of some of their grave stones or their names on monuments like Vimy Ridge if I find them. One of Reginald Slaney's last wishes was to have some Greenfield Park earth spread on his grave. I hope to be able to do this for him. I'll let you know if I succeed when I return.

Thanks John R.
