I'm sorry to report there is more sad news to convey to the river community.

Clayton John Parrish (1971-2014) son of Chuck and Carol Parrish, passed away this past Friday after a brief illness. Many know Chuck from his years as the historian of the Louisville district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Chuck is a friend to numerous river people and a longtime member of the board of directors of the Howard Steamboat Museum. He also is involved in many other endeavors involving river history.

A "Celebration of Life" service for Clay Parrish will be held at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville on Saturday, May 24, at 11 AM.

Thank you.
