Parkview Students Pay Their Respects

A Fallen Hero's Farewell

I am a photographer from Pekin and wanted to pay my respects to our fallen hero. Though I did not have the opportunity to know R.J. or his family, I wanted to give what I could. I have taken as many photos as I could for friends and family so that they can see how many people in our community care and came out to support them in their time of grieving. I only hope this helps in some small way. All of the photos that I have taken can be viewed on my website at and 100% of the profits from any prints ordered will go directly to the family of Lance Corporal R.J. Newton.
