Mr. Thomas Ray Parks, Sr. of Wachapreague

Mr. Thomas Ray Parks, Sr., devoted husband of the late Maureen Flynn “Penny” Parks, and patriarch of the Parks family, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at his home. A resident and native of Wachapreague, VA, and a former longtime resident of Onancock, VA, Thomas Ray was born May 3, 1933 to the late Wilson A. Parks and Annie Landon Parks.  He retired from the Accomack County Public School System, where he was a teacher and devoted football and basketball coach, enthusiastically inspiring both his students and players, over many years.  Following his school career, he was an inspector with the Virginia Department of Agriculture, Weights and Measures Division.  Thomas Ray accepted a retirement incentive from the state of Virginia that he couldn’t refuse, enabling him to enjoy many quality years enjoying what he adored most:  being with his children and their families.  He greatly cherished these times, and they were the favorite and most comforting of his life. Thomas Ray graduated from Lynchburg College; served his country in the United States Coast Guard; was an avid golfer and hunter; loved gardening and especially looked forward to sharing the fruits of his labor; and enjoyed attending local high school football games. Survivors include his nine loving children, Thomas Ray Parks, Jr. and wife Mary Jane, of Exmore, VA, Patrick M. Parks and wife Kim, of Chesterfield, VA,...

Frank W. Blake II of Parksley

Sgt. Frank William Blake II, also known as Frankie Bill, 75, prideful owner and resident of “Pussy Hotel”, in Parksley, VA, walked graciously into the arms of his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Born May 4, 1942 in Philippi, WV, he was the son of the late Reverend Frank William Blake and Beryl “Maxine” Lawhorn Blake.  Frank proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps, owned and operated Blake Water & Sewage, and became notorious for his talents as a private investigator. With a mind that was always moving, there were few times you’d ever see Frank idle, and never without a funny joke or an entertaining story to share.  He enjoyed spending his days working in his garden; walking the fields of Sterling Farm searching for shards, arrowheads, and old bottles; deer hunting; watching sunsets and wildlife from his kitchen window, especially the otters, herons, and bald eagles; saving turtles along the back roads; browsing Pinterest; working on his beloved Nicorette sculpture; visiting his dear friends, Walt and Linda Wessells, Kenny Roberts, Ben and Suzanne Justis, and Sam and Linda Brown; and last but not least, the day was complete with his nightly ritual of dinner (which often included fresh sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, and vanilla ice cream) during his favorite shows, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.  Frank’s green thumb yielded...
