A memorial service on February 26, 2011 at the First United Methodist Church, Wesley Chapel, celebrated the life of Emeritus Professor John Parker, who passed away February 10, 2011 at the age of 90. In 1966 Jack was the first staff member to join Larry Taylor in developing a new department of geology at Albion College. Jack's subsequent 20 years at Albion helped established a strong teaching and research foundation for the now thriving Department of Geological Sciences.
