Jerry Parr's Death On October 9 (10/10/15)

Larry Meuwissen sent this item to me on the death of Jerry Parr who was not a DOJ Tax Alum.  In the tax world and DOJ Tax Alum world, we know his wife, Carolyn Parr, retired Tax Court Judge and DOJ Tax Alum.  I normally do not post death notices for relatives of DOJ Tax Alums, but given this relative's prominence, I thought it was appropriate to post this one.

Jerry Parr was the principal Secret Service Agent assisting President Reagan in the shooting incident and making the quick decision to get him to the hospital.  Many credit him with saving President Reagan's life.

The CNN article is here, the NYT article is here, and the Wikipedia entry is here.
