In Loving Memory

Blanton Horace Parrack

07/25/1934 - 09/08/2017

B.H. Parrack went home to the Lord on Friday, September 8, 2017 after a hard fought battle with lung disease, he was 83 years old.  He lost his wife and best friend Nancy Parrack just 16 days earlier.  The two of them were married right at 63 years and are now together again eternally.  B.H. was born in Ganado, Texas on July 25, 1934 to Henry Alexander and Alta Lee Parrack. He was preceded in death by his brother Bill Parrack, and is survived by his sister Norma Scott.  Raised in West Columbia Texas, B.H. was known as an avid outdoorsman who loved being in the woods and on the water.  He was a quiet believer in God, and spoke that “God doesn’t hold lying against you as long as it is about huntin or fishin.” He had a wonderful sense of humor to the very end.

He was a family man who raised 4 children, had 16 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.  B.H. lost his oldest son Gregg in 2015 who was survived by wife Bonnie.  Living are daughter Debbie McCormack and husband Bob, son Brian Parrack and wife Marlene, and son Chris Parrack and wife Aleta.

To the younger family members he was called Pa.  His grandchildren were Spencer McCormack, Mandy McCormack, Candace McCormack, Caroline Reed, Katie Frausto, Bobby McCormack, Jordan Parrack, Leah Parrack, Roy Knight, Deena Russell, Danny Parrack, Drew Parrack, Deborah Parrack, Julia Parrack, Christopher Parrack and Colton Parrack.  Great grandchildren were; Taylor McCormack, Kaci Parrack, Jana Rudy, Nolan Rudy, Landon Roeker, Maverick Parrack, Sydney Parrack, Norah Parrack, Haddie Parrack, Winnie Parrack, Etta Reed, Louise Reed, June Frausto and Raegan Russell.  

B.H. worked many jobs in his younger years. He got his first paying job at 13 years old driving a truck delivering live chickens to the packing house. To provide for Nancy and his young family, he was a hunting and fishing guide, construction worker, alligator hunter and eventually ran a corporate hunting and fishing club for Tennessee Gas Company.  He moved his family to Friendswood in 1973 and began the last phase of his career where he sold welding supplies well into his 70’s. He knew everyone from the welder’s helper’s to the CEO and treated them with equal respect.  B.H. had many friends who always had a good story to tell about his quotes, or things he did as a young man.  He was the cause of a lot of laughter in his lifetime.

A casual Celebration of Life for B.H. and Nancy will be held from 1 to 4pm Friday September 15th at Joe’s Banquet Hall next to Joe’s BBQ in Alvin, Texas.  Lunch will be served. 

Condolences may be sent to the Parrack family in care of Jeter Memorial Funeral Home at www.jeterfuneralhome.com.
