Bruce Parrott

April 25, 1934 — November 28, 2017

Bruce Roger Parrott went home to be with the Lord and his loving wife on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. He was born April, 25, 1934 to Elsie and Alfred Parrott. He attended school in Twin Falls, Idaho. He married Adeline Marie Dickson on October 31, 1953. They raised seven children and fostered many others.

Dad worked in the meat cutting industry for nearly 20 years after which he and Mom embarked upon a journey of being in business for themselves running Bruce’s Towing and wrecking yard. That’s where many of their grandchildren grew up riding the wrecker, following him through the yard and meeting customers. Dad and mom opened their house and table to anyone who needed to eat, rest or just have a cup of coffee. Many friends were made over the years through the business.

Dad loved fishing, camping, painting and family. He had a passion for feeding people. He solved all of life’s problems with good food, hot coffee and well-meant advice.

Dad was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years; daughter, Cindy Nathan; and son, Eddie. Also preceding him in death were his mother and father; his brothers, Fred, Pat, Jerry, Larry and Danny; and sisters, Ruth Marie and Jewel.

He is survived by daughters, Ruth (Marten) Vonk; Sherry (Andy) DePew; Shawna (Terry) Harbaugh; Gina (Mike) Ordaz; and Holly Parrott. He is also survived by grandchildren Jon, Kate, JoAndi, Teneale, Dennis, Emily, Nick, TJ, Josh, Matt, Megan, Jennifer, Mikey, Kelsey, Mallory and Ali; and 16 1/2 great grandchildren.
