On June 12, 1949 in Harris City, Georgia, Neal Parks was born to the late Jessie Parks Sr. and Ruby Clements Parks Harris. After living an impeccable life of service and fortitude, our Heavenly Father dispatched his angels to LaGrange, Ga on the evening of July 7, 2020 to accompany the soul of Bro. Neal Parksto its heavenly abode.

Neal was raised in Greenville, GA where his stepfather the late Will Harris played a pivotal role in Neal’s life. He was a lifelong member of Greater Siloam Baptist Church in Harris City, GA where he served faithfully. Neal graduated from the Greenville Consolidated School in 1967. In 1969, Neal was drafted by the United States Army and served his country until 1971. Neal was gainfully employed as a welder at Bonnell Aluminum in Newnan, GA for 36 years. Upon his retirement, Neal was employed by the Meriwether County SchoolSystemuntil his passing.

On July 13, 2002 Neal and the love of his life, Sherell Crowder were united in holy matrimony. He was the father of two children, Sheneal and Rodney. Neal was a man who loved his family, friends and community. His heart was just as big as his personality and flair. Simply put, Neal Parks truly enriched and inspired the hearts and minds of those who knew him. Especially his beloved family.

Besides his parents, Neal was preceded in death by his brother Jessie Parks Jr.

Neal leaves to cherish his distinguished memory, a loving and devoted wife of 18 years, Sherell Parks; one daughter: Sheneal (Juan) Flute; one son: Rodney Parks; four grandchildren; five great- grandchildren; three sisters: Jewell Caldwell, Rosa McKee and Mary Murphy; three brothers: Albert Parks, Eddie Parks and Leroy (Patricia) Parks; five sisters-in-law: Bettye (Cornelius) Rivers, Elaine (Floyd) Lyons, Judy (Alvin) Johnson, Brenda Moreland, and Veronica Farley; four brothers-in-law: Render (Jeannette) Crowder, Dewey Crowder, Kenneth (Brenda) Lakes and Alexander (Vicky) Lakes; a hostof nieces, nephews, cousins,friends, and co-workers.

Another tragic shock to our community . . . Neal was the "go to" man when we needed something done. He has helped me often, as well as the city and others around him. I am sure he will have the hedges trimmed and groomed in heaven when we all arrive. Rest well Neal, you have earned it. Love and prayers to the family. Sandy
