Memorial for Gary Parsons

26936298_1515969[phone redacted]_funddescriptionGary Parsons, age 48, was taken from our lives way too soon. He left behind his adoring wife, Elke, and the lights of his life, his daughter Sawyer and son Chero.

Gary blossomed as a father. He was confident and loving. He could make his kids giggle with a look, or by doing their favorite activity - tossing them in the air. He was a strong, rock of a husband and father. He supported his family in the things they enjoyed, allowing them the space to grow and be joyful. It brought him great happiness to see those he loved happy.

He was strong and loving and will be missed incredibly by his family, friends, coworkers and all of those who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a college fund for both kids. All funds donated will go into a savings account set aside for his childrens' future education.
