Frederick D. Parks passed away at age 83 on November 18, 2020 at home with his family around him. Fred was born May 6, 1937 in Minerva, Ohio to Lorena Reader Parks and Franklin Parks. He was married to Barbara Parks.
It is difficult to sum up a man’s life especially one as wonderful as Fred. He was a kind person who was happiest when he was fixing cars or doing things for other people. He helped others selflessly. He spent 8 years in the air force as an airplane mechanic. He worked on mining equipment, trains, and automobiles. There was nothing he couldn’t fix. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He loved his puppies Misty and Sugar. He was an active member of the Baptist Church in Grantsville.
Fred is survived by his sisters-Kay and Judy, his wife-Barbara and 10 children with families: Jack and Kathy, Mike, Terry (son), Debbie, Terri (daughter), Laura, Connie, Patty, Frank, and Cindy.
A private ceremony with family will be held.
