While most people celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas Morning, others mourned the death of long-time Gunflint Trail resident, Jerry Parsons. Jerry died in his home on Christmas Eve and is survived by his son Forrest Parsons.
Jerry purchased Hungry Jack Lodge and moved to the Gunflint Trail in 1972. He has owned and operated the resort and campground on Hungry Jack Lake ever since. His son Forrest joined Jerry at Hungry Jack a few years ago to help run the business. Everyone who has ever met Jerry knows what a wonderful person he was. Jerry was a remarkable man who will be deeply missed.
