W Frank Parr Obituary

W Frank Parr was born on April 26, 1940, on a farm bordering the Snake River near the small town of Nyssa, Oregon.  Frank passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon, December 10, 2023, at Garrison Nursing Home in Garrison Texas with Marilyn Parr and Ramsey Parr at his bedside.

Frank is survived by his wife of 47 years, Marilyn Parr, his son Ramsey Parr, Daughter-in-Law Carmen Parr and grandsons Raeden and Darian Parr.

Frank was preceded in death by his Father Frank C Parr, Mother Thelma E (McNall) Parr and his sister E Jane Fonda.

Frank served in the Air Force and graduated from Oregon State University, Home of the Beavers, with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.

Frank was not destined to stay on the farm.  He was tired of chickens, pigs and working in the sugar beet factory and headed for the big city.  He spent time in San Francisco, Detroit and Tampa, Florida where he met his wife, Marilyn. Frank and Marilyn lived in Tampa Florida, Boise Idaho, Orlando Florida, Palm Bay Florida, and various cities throughout the Dallas Texas area before they retired to Nacogdoches Texas.

Frank was a wonderful husband and father and well known for his ability to make people laugh. Just as I am sure he is doing that in heaven right now.

A private service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made in Frank's memory to Nacogdoches Treatment Center at 119 Hughes Street, Nacogdoches, Texas 75961.
