Jim Parnell
Jim Parnell, 75, passed away Dec. 2, 2011, at  his home in Brookings after a lengthy illness.

Jim served in the  U.S. Navy and was mainly stationed in Guam. He then enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard and served in Alaska and Florida. 

He enjoyed traveling, restoring trailers and woodworking in his shop. He made some beautiful myrtlewood lighthouses.

Jim loved his family and friends, and will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his loving wife Verna of Brookings;  his two sons Bob (Cindy) and Tony; four grandchildren: Ciara, Michel, Melissa and Christina; three great-grandchildren: Estee, Damien and Sophie, all of Washington. He is also survived by his brothers Don (Nan) and Dilbert (Helen); his sister Dru. Also surviving are many nieces and nephews,  sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.

Jim was preceded in death by his first wife Margaret and six brothers: Eugene, David, Roger, Bob, Nelson and Lee.

A get-together will be from 2 to 4 p.m Friday, Dec. 9, at Chetco RV Park recreational center, 16117 Highway 101.  All friends are invited to come by.

Jim’s wish was to be cremated and have his ashes buried in Mount Vernon, Wash.

The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers of Coastal Home Health and Hospice for all their help and loving kindness.
