Blood drive to be held in memory of Parker M. Farley

 

The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive in memory of Parker M. Farley on Wednesday September 19th at the Oswego Elks Lodge from 11:30am-5:30pm.  Parker lost his life in a motorcycle accident at the mere age of 22 on May 2nd.  During his stay in the hospital, where Parker received the best care possible, he was given multiple blood transfusions to try and save his life.  Now it’s time for our community to give the gift of life and sign up to donate blood.

Parker was a 22 year old who loved life.  He loved spending time with his family, especially his niece and nephew. He enjoyed hanging out with his friends, riding motorcycles, and expressing himself with ink.  He had been an ironworker for the last year and absolutely loved his job.  This past March, Parker purchased his first Harley Davidson motorcycle, it was clear he could not be any happier than he was during that time of his life. With Parker’s appreciation of life, he had made the choice to be an organ donor.  Anyone that ever met Parker would quickly find that he was always so thoughtful and wanted to give in any way possible. The chance to donate blood will be another way to give back by remembering Parker and all he did for every person in his life. To sign up please contact Linda M. Cole at 207-0302 or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
