Members of the Parmelee family and American Legion Honeoye Falls, N.Y., Post #664 gathered at Honeoye Falls Cemetery on Nov. 9, 2019, to dedicate a memorial to the memories of Ronald "Red" Art Parmelee and his son Rodney A. Parmelee.

Red, who died in 2000, was the World War II veteran who blew “Taps” for more than 50 years for every Memorial Day, Veterans Day and military funeral in the area. Rod, a Vietnam War veteran, organized and served as parade marshal for more than 25 years for those solemn ceremonies; he died in 2017. (His obit.)

Both were members of and served in a variety of roles with the American Legion post. The memorial was placed next to the tree where Ron stood to blow “Taps” each Memorial Day.
