Melvin Edward Parks, 93, of Kansas City, Mo passed away on Wednesday, September 27th, 2023. Melvin was born on December 15th,1929 in Norborne, Missouri.
Melvin was retired, but spent most of his career serving in the United States Army. He loved his country and was proud of his military service.
After he retired from the Army, Melvin, never wanting to be idle, worked for the United States Postal Service. He worked there for two decades before retiring again.
Melvin was well known for his love of animals and the outdoors. One of his favorite pastimes was sitting on his porch watching the neighborhood and feeding any cats, squirrels, birds, or opossums that happened by.
One of his greatest joys was his Schnauzer, Nora, who followed him wherever he went.
Melvin was also notorious for his love of sweets; his family would lovingly tease him for his favorite snack, a glass of milk, a slice of cake, and a Jello cup. If cookies or candy went missing around the house, everyone always knew who the culprit was.
Melvin is survived by his wife, Donna Parks, 6 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. He was loved by all his family ad friends and will be greatly missed.
