Richard “Rick” Parchman

January 9, 2021, 55, Pikeville –

Richard “Rick” Parchman, 55, was welcomed into Heaven with open arms on January 9, 2021.

Born in Phoenix, Arizona, he was the son of the late Kenneth Parchman and Myrtle Siptak Parchman. Rick was a construction superintendent with Group W. He attended Pike’s Crossroad’s Pentecostal Holiness Church.

Rick was an avid outdoorsman. He felt most comfortable being in the woods with a gun or feeling the pull of a fish on the other end of his line. Rick was known as a “Jack of all trades.” If there was anything that needed to be fixed, Rick was your guy. An intelligent man, he was known to “MacGyver” himself through many situations.

Family was paramount to Rick. His love for his family was evident in his everyday life. He was a faithful husband, loving father, and known as Bubby to his granddaughters. Rick never let an opportunity slip by where he could pull off a prank on those he loved.

At Rick’s request, a service will be held at a later date.

Rick is survived by his wife, Jackie Parchman; sons, Kenny Parchman and wife Nikki, and Joey Parchman; granddaughters, Autumn Parrish, Annalynn Parchman, and Maggie Parchman; brothers, Robert Parchman and wife Charlotte, and Wayne Parchman and wife Jan. Rick is also survived by several nieces and nephews, but one special niece, who was the apple of his eye, Brittany Brown. Rick is also survived by a brother-in-law, who was his partner in crime, Bobby Barfield.

In addition to his parents, Rick is preceded in death by a sister, Sherri Parchman, and a grandson, Bo Parchman.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest memorial donations be made to Limbs for Life, 9604 N. May Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73120 in honor of Rick.
