Clifton Evert Parks, born September 12, 1951 in Dallas, Texas, passed away May 16, 2022 in Hico, Texas at age 70.
“Cliff” was loved by everyone, never met a stranger, and always enjoyed laughter and making others smile. He loved the Hico Nursing and Rehabilitation staff and kept them entertained. Cliff had a great memory and enjoyed reminiscing with his siblings of their childhood and life on the farm. When they forgot something or someone’s name, Cliff would have the answer! He loved having visitors at the nursing home, and family time on the farm. He was the best brother in the world and will always be loved.
Preceding Cliff in death are his parents, Cecil Parks, Sr. and Lola Mae “Shine” Parks, and one brother, Cecil Parks, Jr.
Surviving Cliff are his sisters, Sharon Calaway, Joan Yankie, and Laverne Bales; and his brother, Bill Parks. Also surviving are his devoted nieces and their families: Laura Ewing (Kyle, and Caleb, Coy and Caela), Lisa Hardin (Sam, and Caroline and Claire), and Robin Cortez (Danny, and Jake). Cliff also leaves behind a host of other family and friends.
Graveside services, 10 a.m., Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at Fairy Cemetery, with Rev. Dace Clifton officiating.
