Parks, Austin William(Bill) 70 of Dartmouth born in Sheet Harbour Nova Scotia. It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Bill on Dec 28th 2020, after a brief illness with cancer. The son of the late Guy Lionel (Darby)and Emma (Frost) Parks. Bill was a welder and retired from RKO Steel where he worked for 28 years, he also worked for the Halifax Ship Yards and the Halifax Metal Workers. He was a 43 year member of the Corselette Branch 58 Legion of Sheet Harbour. He loved to garden, his vegetables and his flowers were his pride and joy. As well as his beloved Homestead in Lochaber Mines, where he and Jenny worked tirelessly keeping it looking beautiful. Survived by his partner in life of over 30 years Jenny Hardy, his sons Benjamin(Dawn) and Jeremy, step Sons Rick(Lisa), Geoff (Tanya), grandchildren Micah and Cameron, step grandchildren Shawn, Kailey, Kylie, Chelsea and Makayla, great grandchildren Kohen, Kaysen, Ni'all and Benjamin, brothers; Steven(Sherry), Gary, Andrew, sister Caroline and many nephews, nieces, great nephews and nieces. Pre deceased by his brother in law, Wilfred Bond. The one thing Bill missed the most was not being able to meet with his coffee buddies where he had a lot of great laughs, especially at the expense for his love of the Oak Island Mystery which he watched religiously. A special thanks to the staff of the 3rd floor and the ER staff at the Dartmouth General Hospital. Cremation has already taken place and there will be a private service at the St James Church cemetery. Donations can be made to the Cancer society or to St. James Church in Lochaber Mines, Nova Scotia.
