Former Congressman Stan Parris Dies

Stanford Parris, a Republican who represented the eighth district of Virginia in congress for most of the 1980s, has died from heart disease at the age of 80.

Parris was an Air Force veteran. He was rescued after the jet he was piloting was shot down over North Korea.

Parris’ eighth district seat is currently held by Rep. Jim Moran (D), who succeeded Parris in 1991. The eighth district now includes Arlington, but we’re told it did not during the time Parris was in office (we apologize for the error in a previous version of this story).

Funeral services for Parris will be held at Arlington National Cemetery.
