Obituary

William J. Parks, age 79 of Stanton, passed away on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing.

It was safe to say there was never much grass growing under the feet of Bill Parks, as he was constantly on the go and always busy doing something. For the past 40+ years he owned and operated Michigan Police Equipment Company and before that he was a police officer in Flushing. Bill proudly served his country in the US Army where he worked in the Signal Corps. Bill traveled all over the world hunting, but his favorite adventures always involved his son and favorite hunting partner, Bill. When he wasn’t working or hunting, Bill could be found tinkering on his farm. His knowledge of guns and ability to shoot was legendary and he was one hell-of-a-shot with any firearm he picked up. But most of all, Bill loved his family and spending time with them.

Surviving Bill is his wife, Sena; daughters, Tracey Mamero of Stanton; Jamie Mamero of Greenville; Chrissy (Steve) Morris of Stanton; Cathy Parks of Portland; Wendy (Kevin) Gully of Illinois; son, Bill (Lisa) Parks of Fenwick; 11 grandchildren, many great grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Byron Parks Jr. of Burton; Gary Parks of Satellite Beach, Florida; Greggory Parks of Flushing; Deborah Wilbur of Kenner, Louisiana; Dawn Rachner of Okemos; Vaughn Parks of Hattiesburg, Mississippi and lots of nieces and nephews.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph & Catherine (Labrie) Parks; brother, Vincent Parks and sister, Mary Parks.

A celebration of Bill’s life is being held on Monday, June 15, 2020 from 10 AM until 12 Noon at Bill’s home, (3766 N. Nevins Road, Stanton), please feel free to come and go as your schedule allows. Military Rites will be held at 12 Noon under the direction of the Stanton American Legion Honor Guard. Bill will be laid to rest at Hillside Cemetery in Entrican.

For those wanting to make a memorial donation in Bill’s memory the family suggests you direct them to the Stanton American Legion Post 452.
