Below is the George’s obituary:
George Parks, 94, of Yorktown Heights, NY passed away peacefully on April 20, 2018 with his family by his side.
Mr. Parks was born on January 24, 1924 to the late George and Clara Parks, in White Plains NY. On November 1, 1952 he married the love of his life Sandra and together they were blessed with a loving daughter Deborah.
George proudly served his country during World War II actively with the US Navy and was a proud American. Before he retired Mr. Parks was a talented self employed carpenter who had an extraordinary amount of pride in his work and a fine eye for detail and perfection in everything he did. He truly lived life to the fullest enjoying golf in his spare time. Although George was an avid golfer and loved his work, his family was his true passion in life. Mr. Parks was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and a friend to many. He will be dearly missed by all who had known and loved him, yet his legacy of love and devotion to family, friends and country, will continue to grow in our hearts.
