William "Bill" Parks

December 25, 1940 — June 10, 2020

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.
