Robert Lee Parks passed away suddenly on August 12, 2021 in McKinney, Texas at the age of 68. He is survived by Kathleen, his wife of 39 years, loving father of Robert (Jena) and Megan, and proud grandfather of Ella.
Growing up in El Monte, CA “Captain Bob” earned his wings at the age of 17. His passion for aviation evolved into a 38 year career as a Corporate Pilot, ultimately achieving Senior Captain status with Kimberly Clark. In this position, Bob was able to travel around the world where he accumulated many fond memories and lifelong friendships. Bob was an active member of AOPA, EAA, QB, and the Cessna 120-140 Association. He especially enjoyed the time he spent with his aviation friends and family.
The family will be announcing the details of the Memorial Services to be held in Dallas and Atlanta as soon as the arrangements are finalized.
