Bob Parr went to his heavenly home on November 8, 2017. He was born in Ballinger, Texas, on April 8, 1927, to Ed and Gladys Parr. He served in the US Navy during World War II. After returning, he and his father started Parr Marine Sales in San Angelo. They manufactured the first drive-on boat trailers and first automatic water ski reels. During the drought in the early 1960s, Bob started Trend Furniture. This third-generation legacy continues today at Trend Furniture with owners, Bob’s daughter Kristie and husband Russell and their son Bobbie. Bob left San Angelo in 1992 and moved to Orlando, Florida, with his wife Dorothy to open La-Z-Boy stores. He later retired and moved to Keller, Texas, where he was a member of First Baptist Church.
He is survived by his loving wife Dorothy; daughter Kristie Reed and husband Russell; daughter Pam Wood and husband David; stepsons David Odom and Robert Odom and wife Rhonda; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
