Obituary for Robert Douglas Parks

PARKS, Robert Douglas “Doug”
October 26, 1952 – November 26, 2011
With deep sadness and while surrounded by his family at the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital following a short but courageous battle with cancer. He leaves us all with many great memories of his past. Doug is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Leona (nee Pariseau) Parks. Also survived by his two sons: Shannon Parks (and his wife Nicole) of Iroquois Falls, Ontario and Gregory Parks of Arnprior. Doug was the son of the late David and Carmel (nee Strong) Parks formerly of Maberly, Ontario. Dear brother of Margaret (Lavern) Morrow of Kingston, Debbie (Steve) McCann of Seeley`s Bay, Beth Parks, Dwaine Parks, Nancy Parks, Kenny (Sandy) Parks, Bradley Parks and Angela (Darren) Gibson all of Maberly. Predeceased by his older brother, Bruce Parks. Dearly loved by his granddaughters Grace and Victoria Parks and Jordyn Box who will miss their grandfather’s tickles and kisses. He will also be missed by his many nieces and nephews and above all his cat, Felix. The Parks family would like to thank Dr. Schriver and Dr. Greenough for their excellent care over the years. Special thanks to the nurses in the Palliative Care Unit for all their friendliness, support, caring and smiles while taking care of our father and husband. Many thanks also to our many friends for their support and encouragement in this difficult time. A private family graveside service for Doug will be held at the Crawford Cemetery, Perth on Saturday, December 3rd, 2011. In memory of Doug, a donation to the Ottawa Heart Institute or to the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital Partners in Caring Foundation would be appreciated by his family. Arrangements in the care of the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel, 50 John Street North, Arnprior.
