Obituary

Coy Parks was born on August 14, 1936 in Zwolle, Louisiana to Ruby Ebarb Parks and Robert Scott Parks, Jr.

He joined the Air Force in 1955 after finishing high school, and was stationed in Cheyenne, Wyoming when he met the love of his life, Ruth Bindel, in Greeley, Colorado. Upon returning from his deployment in Japan, he married Ruth on April 14, 1958. Coy and Ruth were happily married for 61 years. He was proud of his Native American heritage as an elder in the Choctaw-Apache Tribe of Ebarb and of his ancestral lineage Clan Scott of Edinburgh Scotland.

He worked in the auto industry starting as a mechanic and advancing to owning a VW dealership. He forgot more about fixing VW’s than most people will ever know. He loved camping, traveling and spending time with his family.

He is survived by his wife and 7 children: Terri (married to Jim Stiles), Ronald (married to Kathy Kuminski), Julie, Ricky (married to Linda Leavitt), Sharon (married to Bill Kunzman), Donna (married to Brian Dellek), and Kimberly. He is also survived by 16 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his daughter Debra, and his brothers Robert Scott Parks III and John Richardson.
