Thunder James Parent Funeral fund


03/03/1953 - 03/19/2018

James Parent was a loving, strong minded, passionate man who dedicated his life to his family.  He was a Naval veteran who was loved and well respected at work and in his personal life.  When he wasn't devoting his time to his family or Space X, he stayed active in his local community.  He spent his free time taking care of his wife Donna (of 40 yrs as of March 17th) and riding everywhere on his motorcycle, rain or shine.  Seeing him drive a car was rare sight.  

Recently James and Donna had to make the tough derision to seek out a caretaker.  The additional help was necessary for Donna while James was not at home.  On February 15th, James left early from work so he could spend a three day weekend with Donna.  On his way home he was struck by a car while riding on his motorcycle.  He spent 5 weeks in ICU, fighting for his life.  On March 19th he could fight no longer.  He was surpassed by his wife Donna, two sons Jason and Robbie, and multiple grandchildren. 

All donations will go directly to pay off outstanding medical bills and funeral arrangements. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
