Lieutenant Randy Parker Memorial Video

On February 11, Macon-Bibb County lost one of its heroes, Lieutenant Randy Parker with the Fire Department, in the line of duty as he and his fellow firefighters responded to a fire on Fairview Drive. Several thousand people paid their respects at the Visitation at Government Center and at services at the Macon Auditorium. MaconBibbTV created a video honoring the life of Lt. Parker and highlighting the community that celebrated his life.
