Jerry Keith Parish, 45, departed this life for his eternal home on Friday, April 22, 2022. Jerry was born April 11, 1977 to Jerry and Janie Parish of Mansfield.
Jerry was a 1995 graduate of Mansfield, a proud uncle, beloved son and brother. He had an amazing heart, sweet spirit and gave teddy bear hugs. He was a quiet man, much like his father whom he lost at an early age.
Bub, as he was so lovingly called, was diligent to call daily to check on his mother who resides at Pink Bud Nursing Center in Greenwood. He visited her as often as he could.
He spent many summers babysitting his niece and nephew, simply to ensure he was as much a part of their lives as he could be. Jerry enjoyed the company of his family, especially the morning hugs from his great-nephew. He also enjoyed the company of his cousin, Mike Parish, who was always faithful to help in any way.
He is survived by his mother, Janie Parish; a sister and her husband, Joy and Kevin Jolley; two nieces, Tiffany Gateley (Michael) and Harper Jolley; a nephew, Cody Jolley (Emily); a great-nephew Conner Reed Jolley; Cousin, Mike Parish and a host of family, and friends.
He is preceded in death by his father, Jerry Parish and a brother, Gary Parish.
The Celebration of Jerry's life will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, April 30, 2022 at the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home Chapel in Waldron, Arkansas with Bro. Justin Weaver officiating. Arrangements and cremation are being entrusted to the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home & Crematory in Waldron, Arkansas.
