Arkansas connection in church death

Posted By on Tue, Jul 29, 2008 at 3:32 PM

Greg McKendry, the church member who was killed after he put himself between a shotgun-wielding man and a Unitarian congregation in Knoxville, Tenn., on Sunday, was a former Arkansas resident.

According to Sandra Brand, editor of the weekly Osceola Times, he'd been plant manager for Viskase Corp. in Osceola from November of 1987 to July of 1994.

He is remembered fondly by several commenters on this Osceola-related forum and Brand's paper will have an article on him in this week's edition, on the web Friday. He was a wonderful person, in addition to being one of Sunday's heroes,  it sounds like.
