Park Forest remembers Robert McCray


A public memorial gathering for Park Forest Trustee Robert McCray has been scheduled for Thursday, September 26, from 2 to 4:30 p.m., at Dining on the Green, 349 Main Street, in Park Forest.

McCray, a resident of Park Forest for over 40 years, was first elected as village trustee in 2005. He went on to become one of the longest serving trustees in the history of the Village of Park Forest, having been re-elected in 2009, 2013, and 2017.

In his role as village trustee, McCray served as trustee liaison to a host of Park Forest boards and commissions, including the Commission on Human Relations, the Senior Commission, the Veterans Commission, and the Youth Commission.

McCray was a founding member of Park Forest’s Mediation Task Force. He and wife, Alicia, were well known in the community for their involvement in Park Forest and were strong advocates of the village.

In his professional career, McCray served for many years as a manager with the United States Postal Service before retiring.

Park Forest salutes Robert McCray for his long and dedicated service to the community and expresses heartfelt condolences to all who feel his loss.

Memorial bunting currently hangs on the south façade of Park Forest’s Village Hall in tribute to McCray.
