Lester Dale Parsons, 95, of Westminster, died unexpectedly Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012, at Carroll Hospital Center.

Born April 29, 1917, in Davis, W.Va., he was the son of the late Peter and Bessie Reed Parsons. He was the husband of Virginia "Ginny" Parsons, his wife of 72 years.

He was retired after 40 years of service with C&P Telephone Company. He was a veteran of World War II, serving in the Army Signal Corps.

He was a member of the VFW Post 467 of Westminster, Telephone Pioneers of America, and The Garrison Rifle and Revolver Club of Maryland. He enjoyed going to the Canaan Valley and Blackwater Resorts. He had composed a couple of songs about them for his own pleasure. Hunting and fishing were both a joy for him, and he particularly enjoyed growing tomatoes.

Per his wishes he was cremated and no service will be held at this time.
