PARKS, F Ernest
died April 17, 1999.
He struggled with Parkinson's Disease for over 40 years but it rarely dampened his sly good humor and his triumphant love of life. He was defined instead by his devotion to his wife, children and grandchildren and by his strength, intelligence and warmth which he applied so generously to all he encountered. Following in his own father's footsteps he became a pharmacist and later a successful award-winning salesman and divisional manager for ER Squibb & Sons in Michigan and Ohio until a diagnosis of Parkinson's led to his early retirement at age 50. He was a life-long and passionate Democrat and after his retirement he continued to lead an active and stimulating life of reading, travel, conversation and friendships. He was supported in all of his pursuits by his wife's loving and careful attention. He took immense pleasure from the company of his children and grandchildren, many of whom live locally, and who all in turn derived great joy from his strong and abiding love.
Although he is predeceased by his daughter, Kitty, he is survived by his wife Sally, his children Gregg (Betsy), Mary Ann (Don) and Brad (Lisa) and his grandchildren Jon, Alexis, Caleb and Caitlin.
Visitation will be held tonight 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Welch-Ryce-Haider Funeral Chapels, 15 East Sola St. A Graveside service will be held on Wednesday, April 21, 11:00am at Calvary Cemetery. Arrangments by Welch-Ryce-Haider Funeral Chapels.
