It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Gregory Roy Parks on June 15, 2015 at 48 years of age. Greg passed away peacefully with loved ones by his side.

I consider myself and many others fortunate to have played with Greg at Bowling Green. We collectively experienced great moments together on and off the ice. Parksie was a tremendous competitor and leader who you wanted on your team.
