Robert E. Kerney 1922-2008

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Our former longtime president, Robert E. Kerney, passed away today. Following his service as a Corporal in World War II at the Battle of the Bulge, he was hired by then-President Llewellyn Parker in 1945. Bob’s energy, enthusiasm, and larger-than-life personality made him a natural salesman and successful executive. Beginning in 1960, Bob served as President until his retirement in 1991, at which time he continued consulting for the company. Bob’s dedication and passion for Parker Flavors will always be remembered by those of us so fortunate to work with him and share his friendship.
