WASHINGTON — James L. “Lee” Parker, a 34-year veteran of the U.S. Secret Service, who worked on presidential details including ones where attempts were made on President Ford’s life, died last month in Virginia at age 70, the Washington Post reported.

The paper reported that he died of brain cancer at the Fairfax Nursing Center in suburban Washington. He had been with the Secret Service from 1965 to 1999.

Parker worked for the Alexandria, Va. police and for the CIA before joining the Secret Service, the Post reported.

At one point in his career, in the 1990s, he headed the global counterfeit division at Interpol in Lyon, France, the Post reported.

He also served on the detail of President Ford “when Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme and, later, Sara Jane Moore tried to kill the president in 1975,” the Post reported.
