Kenneth Ray Parrish, 80, of Ocean Isle Beach passed away Tuesday, June 26, 2018.
He was born in Miami on Aug. 17, 1937, a son of Clyde Charles Parrish and Mary Rebecca Warner Parrish. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy. He was happy when he was on the ocean. Not only was he a world-class fisherman, but he also was a fabulous cook and made the best fish tacos around. But his greatest joy was his family and especially his grandchildren.
Helen, his wife of 59 years, preceded him in death. In addition to his wife and parents, his siblings, Chester, Clyde, Edward, Carey, David, Mary Parrish and Nina Williams preceded him in death.
Surviving are his son, Kenneth Lee Parrish (Kathy) of Oregon; daughter, Elaine Renee Parrish of Ocean Isle Beach; sister, Sarah Scott of Ocean Isle Beach; grandchildren, Reanna, Amanda, Nicole (Nick) and Aaron; and great-grandchildren, Gwen and Oliver.
