This very sad news just in from Jim Korkis:

[John Parish passed away unexpectedly but quietly Monday night July 23. Many Disney fans will know him from his attendance at a variety of special events over the years at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. In Disney history, he will be remembered as the Catholic priest who gave the eulogy at Imagineer John Hench's funeral. Hench's conversations with John about the connections between spirituality and Disney concepts was acknowledged by Hench in his book, Designing Disney. John Parish's legacy of love for Disney will be kept alive by his frequent traveling companion and friend, Kim Eggink, who was also acknowledged in Hench's book. Services for John Parish will take place in North Carolina on Friday July 27.]
