My sincere sympathies for the loss of Parks! He was such a kind, calm, and happy person. He always had a smile on his face when starting the day at WP. May the memories you and the family shared with him comfort you Dee in the coming days! He touched so many and will be missed.

Was shocked to hear of the untimely death of Parks. I remember him fondly from our days at Whirlpool . He was always a kind supervisor and always found a gentle way to handle our disputes. He was always there with a smile and never was unkind to anyone. Even seeing him out of work since retiring he would stop to chat with you. My prayers are with you Dee and all his family he will be surely missed. He was one of the great ones. He leaves a lot of wonderful memories for all of us who knew him. Sorry I am out of town and can not stop by for his celebration of life to share my stories of this wonderful man. PRAYERS for your comfort and healing.

My deepest condolences to Dee and family. I will never forget Parks and all the fun he brought to Whirlpool. He was a special mentor and I cherish all the memories that Parks gave to me !


Park was a hard working man and he worked hard for the things he had in life. He loved to have fun, even if this meant scaring somebody half to death just so he could see you jump, he liked to play cards, marbles, games on the computer. He loved to fish, and a lot of evenings in the summer he would have supper fixed when Dee got home so him and Dee could go fishing until dark. Him and Dee owned a 1961 Massey Ferguson 35 tractor that he liked taking to different tractor shows and showing it off, that was one of his pride and joys. He was the happiest when he had one of the tools hooked up to the tractor and he was doing something around the farm with it. Park also loved his animals, his dogs was his babies. He had a couple that he was real close to our Rott. Jozy and our grandpup Zahara, he took it hard when both of them had to leave us for their heavenly home.
