Two suburban park visionaries will be missed Lately I have had acquaintances and friends pass away -- very young by most standards. Albert Pine said, "What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal." This quote accurately defines Scott Triphahn, park commissioner for the Hoffman Estates Park District, and Dennis Flanagin, of the Lan-Oak Park District. Both lost their battle with cancer in December 2010 and in April 2011, respectively.
