Two Tragedies Impact IAPD Family

During this month of giving thanks and being with loved ones, the IAPD family has been rocked by two tragedies.

Remembering Greg Millsaps

Greg Millsaps, 47, an outside sales representative for Curbell Plastics, Inc. was involved in a car accident on Thursday, November 14 and died on the scene. He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Elaine Millsaps, and one daughter, Madison Nicole Millsaps. As an avid softball player, he was Georgia State Director of the National Softball Association and the United States Specialty Sports Association as well as a member of the Eastside Baptist Church.

IAPD has made a donation to the Millsaps family. We encourage IAPD members to submit additional donations to help the family during this terrible time. Donations may be made to:

Attention: Lisa Kelley
Curbell Plastics, Inc.

Orchard Park, NY 14127

Checks should be made payable to Elaine Millsaps. Please submit donations to Lisa Kelley by Friday, December 20, 2013.

Thank you for keeping Greg and his family in your thoughts during this very difficult time.

Patti Moore: A Survivor’s Story

IAPD is also devastated to learn about a Cope Plastics, Inc. employee in Peoria, IL, whose family fell victim to a horrific tornado on November 17.

Patti Moore and her two children, ages 11 and 14, were barely able to take cover in their basement when the dangerous storm hit, demolishing their home. They worked long into the evening gathering everything they could salvage.

Fortunately, Patti’s insurance company has quickly started the process of evaluating her property and ensuring that she and her family have a place to stay now and during the rebuilding process but the Moore family has lost almost everything.

IAPD has made a donation to the Moore family. If you would like to give an additional donation to Patti and her children, donations may be made to:

Cope Plastics, Inc.
C/O Jane Saale
PO Box 129
Godfrey, IL 62035

Checks should be made payable to Patti Moore.

Thank you for considering Patti and her children during this very difficult time. Our thoughts are with her and the East Peoria, Pekin and Washington, IL, communities.
