Funeral services for Roy Edward Parr will be held Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. at Ibert's Mortuary in Franklin with a gathering of family and friends beginning at 10:00 a.m. Following the service, he will be laid to rest with Military Honors in the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Baldwin.

Roy had many facets to his personality. His determination was a strength that served him well throughout his life time. He completed a carpentry course in trade school during time off from a seven and seven offshore schedule. Skills learned there helped him to read blueprints during his time with Exxon and to completely remodel his entire home over his 62 years of marriage. He built stunning, one of a kind cradles for each of his children's' first born, crafted model pirogues and canoes, created handmade frames for his wife's paintings and even built a stable for the Holy family at Sacred Heart Church to name a few. He was a jack-of-all trades earning him a problem solver persona. Roy's Cajun ingenuity was like no other! Share your dilemma and he always found a fascinating way to overcome the obstacles.

Roy's mentoring reached far and wide as a husband, father, brother, cousin, uncle, boss, and friend! He dedicated his life to striving for a better future for himself and his family. Through exceptional financial planning he retired at the age of fifty-five and never looked back. He lent his experience to the building of The Center of Hope and participated in The American Legion. He enjoyed some traveling throughout the United States and documented a lifetime through photos and stories. Roy loved history and was proud to share his vast knowledge of everything historical! His stories will be missed!

Survivors include his four children, Chuck Parr and his wife Anne Resweber, Pam Parr Pacetti and her husband Rodney Pacetti, Bonnie Parr Trahan and her husband Michael Trahan, and Lori Parr Smith and her husband Curtis Smith; ten grandchildren, Katy Parr Orbeta and her husband Larry, Lisa Parr, Jake Parr and his wife Jolynn, Amy Parr LeBlanc and her husband Jake, Adam Pacetti and his wife Loretta, Emily Pacetti Whitaker and her husband Matt, Carly Trahan Moss and her husband Seth, Scott Trahan, Tyler Smith, and Micah Smith; eleven great grandchildren, Ian Orbeta, Wayne Lee Parr, Alex and Kyle Siddle, Lela Lacombe, Gabby, Gwen, and Cade Pacetti, Emmy and Brayden Moss, and Theia Whitaker; one brother, George Parr and his wife Nancy; one sister, Ann Parr Caro and her husband Louis; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Victoria "Vickie" Landry Parr; one son, Wayne E. Parr; one great grandson, Ellis Cook; his parents, Edward Joseph "Blackie" Parr and Ione Rochel Parr; and one brother, Bennett Parr.
