The Roane County Commission honored the late Glenn Wilson King with a posthumous resolution earlier this month.
“I appreciate it, and my family appreciates you remembering him,” his wife, Mary King, told the commission.
King died on Feb. 5.
He practiced optometry in the county for 31 years and was an active member of the Rockwood Rotary Club.
Commissioner Ron Berry said he felt it was important to recognize King for his contributions to Roane County Park.
