Remembering Kenneth Packer

And finally, we remember Kenneth Packer, the founder of Naperville’s Packer Engineering, who died on Wednesday at the age of 93. Ken founded Packer Engineering in the basement of his home in Naperville. The work he was most proud of was with the Packer Education Foundation that included Packer Wings, which taught aviation and technology to high school students and teachers. Though born in Grand Rapids, MI, Ken was a resident of Naperville, IL since 1957 and will be remembered this Saturday.
