Rest in Peace, Congressman Stan Parris

27 Mar

Former Virginia Congressman Stan Parris died today at his home in Matthews County. He was 80.

Bearing Drift has more details as well as statements from RPV Chair Pat Mullins and Governor McDonnell: Rep. Stan Parris of Virginia passes away

I met Congressman Parris back during the 1985 campaign and frequently saw him on the campaign trail during the primary season. He dropped his challenge to Wyatt Durrette before the convention.

One of his favorite stories to tell brought groans from our group of campaign staffers traveling the state with Mr. Parris and our respective candidates.

Giving his bio, the Congressman used to joke that when he was young he got himself a job as an elevator operator in the Capitol and worked his way up to the top floor.

Rest in Peace sir. Thank you for your service to the Commonwealth and this great nation.
