Collingwood historian Don PARRISH dies
PARRISH key in implementing Harbourland project
By John EDWARDS, Page 3
Well-known Collingwood resident Don PARRISH died on February 12, at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket.
He was 77
PARRISH worked at the Collingwood Shipyards for more than 40 years and was an avid historian.
According to Deputy Mayor Sandra COOPER, who knew PARRISH all of her life, he often volunteered at the museum and was an active member of the Harbourlands committee. COOPER said PARRISH was instrumental in putting together the path of hull plates from Huron Street to the harbour.
Former Mayor Terry GEDDES, who gave the eulogy at PARRISH's funeral, said he will be sadly missed.
"When he died, not only did a piece of his family die, but so did a piece of Collingwood," GEDDES said. "It's the Don PARRISH's that made Collingwood the community it is."
PARRISH was an avid sports fan, having played hockey for the Stayner Royals and was regularly seen at Collingwood Blues games. He was a fan of the Boston Bruins and Red Sox.
"You'd always see him with a Boston ball cap on," she said.
He was married to Yvonne and was a father to Stephanie, Donna and Brenda and grandfather to Nathan, Brandon, Kayla, Becca, Ryan and Lexi. He is predeceased by his brothers Gordon and Gary.
