Obituary for Harold William Parsons
The Inter-Mountain - Nov 29, 2005

Harold William “Pappy” Parsons, 91, a resident of Parsons and more recently a resident of the Cortland Acres Nursing Home of Thomas, departed this life Saturday afternoon, Nov. 26, 2005, at the nursing home. He had been in declining health and death was attributed to congestive heart failure.
     He was born Wednesday, April 15, 1914, at Parsons, a son of the late James William Parsons and Nancy Lee Long Parsons. He was married to the former Lessie Fitzwater, who preceded him in death.
Surviving are one son, James M. Parsons and wife, Joyce, of Eglon, WV; two grandchildren, Kimberly Ann Winkler and husband, James, and James William Parsons and wife, Robin, all of Pennsylvania;
and three great-grandchildren, Dean Pistorius, Ryan John Parsons and Tara Adele Parsons, all of Pennsylvania.    
     He was the last surviving member of his immediate family, having been preceded in death by one infant daughter, Carolyn Jane Parsons.
     He was a graduate of Parsons High School with the class of 1933, where he was on the football team. He was inducted into the Parsons High School Alumni Hall of Fame. He attended Fairmont State College and received his master’s degree in education from West Virginia University.
     During World War II, he worked in the shipyards at Baltimore, Md. He was a schoolteacher at Thomas High School and Parsons High School, teaching American history, social studies and drivers education. He was the truancy officer in Tucker County. He was a life member and elder at Parsons Presbyterian Church at Parsons.
     The family will receive friends at Lohr & Barb Funeral Home of Parsons today from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Final rites will be conducted at the funeral home parlor Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 11 a.m. The Rev.
