The friends and family of 30-year-old Joe Parrish were left devastated after a tree-falling accident claimed his life the morning of Friday, Feb. 21.

The owner of Vintage Gardens just recently took over his father, Don Parrish’s, business after Don’s death in July 2013.

Parrish said in a Profile in Business, published in Feb. 19 Feather River Publishing newspapers, that he was trying to keep the nursery open to honor his father, but he had quickly made the business his own project that he wanted to see thrive.
