Complete the Parkes Family Home

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we, the family and friends of the late, beloved Brett Graham Parkes, ask for the communities outreach and support during this extremely tragic time of need. On Friday April 27th, Brett was involved in a very serious four wheeling accident. After a long hard fight, Brett succumbed to his severe injuries on the morning of Sunday April 29. Brett was the best father and most loving husband and leaves behind his dearest wife and high-school sweetheart, Suzi, and two young boys, Kane- 4yrs & KC- 3yrs, whom he worshiped the ground they walked on. Brett was an extremely hard worker, specializing in sheet metal and gas fitting, while on his spare time. building the families new home. He always had another project on the go and took a lot of pride in his work. He was so passionate about building this home that he had recently taken some time from work to focus solely on completing it and getting his family in there as soon as possible. He had brought it back to its original shell and had just finished the studding. Electrical was scheduled to come in next week with plumbing to follow. We are asking that if anyone has qualifications in the construction and renovation field and would like to donate time rather than money to get this young families home completed for them and fulfill Brett's dream, to please direct all inquires to Allison Stinson. We are praying that as a community, we can come together as one and at least relieve some financial stress from this young family during this extremely devastating time of need and allow Brett to rest easier knowing that his beautiful family has support through all of this. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and souls. Bless you all.

For anyone who would like to attend, the celebration of life for Brett Graham Parkes will be held at the Avening Community Centre on Saturday May 12th from 4pm - 9pm. The address is 3401 Country Road 42, Avening ON, L0M 1K0. Please come and share all your wonderful memories with us. Brett was larger than life, let make sure that is never forgotten.
