Brooker

Mr. Winston “Wayne” Parrish, age 78, of Brooker, passed away peacefully on August 21, 2022, at his home surrounded by family. Wayne was born on September 8, 1943, in Brooker, to Robert Guy Parrish and Nona Whitehead. He was a lifelong resident of Brooker and a graduate of Bradford County High School. Soon after school, Wayne went to work for DuPont for several years before working for Florida Gas Transmission in Brooker. After 47 years of work, he retired in 2012. When he wasn’t at work, Wayne was working on the farm. He enjoyed planting row crops and working with cattle, but most importantly, he loved being around his family and his grandchildren. He was a lifelong member of New River Baptist Church. He was preceded in death by his parents.
