PASADENA, Calif. — The legacy of two local organ donors will be nationally recognized on Monday during the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif.
Reat Underwood and Heather Reed Flynn will be featured on the Donate Life Float, which is the third float in the parade.
Reat Underwood was killed in the attack at the Jewish Community Center in April of 2014. Reat was an organ donor, and Monday morning a floral portrait of him will be displayed on the Donate Life Float during the parade.
Reat’s parents and brother are in California to watch the parade and are VIP guests on the grandstand.
Heather Reed Flynn died in 2015 and donated several of her organs. She will also be honored on the float with a floragraph.
The parade begins at 10 a.m.
