Memorial Services will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at First Baptist Church in Grass Valley. Reception will follow at Penny’s Diner.

Jack was born on November 27, 1934 in Sonora, CA to Cora and George Parman. He served in the Air Force as an airplane mechanic before being honorably discharged and became a police officer with the Grass Valley Police Department. After five years, he resigned to enter the California Highway Patrol Academy, where he served until he retired in 1990. He married the love of his life on November 5, 1958 after only two months of dating. He also served as an Elder at Calvary Bible Church, a volunteer fire fighter, served on the NUHS School Board, served on the City Council where he was appointed Mayor, and ran for sheriff.

His number one priority in life was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Second was his family, which includes four children and 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He also loved riding his motorcycle and in more recent times, having lunch and visiting family and friends at his daughter’s restaurant.

He will be missed by all.
