William H. Parsons passed away peacefully on August 2, 2023. He was 93. Bill of Eagleville, PA, was born and raised in Philadelphia and was the son of the late Earl and Helen Parsons. He was proceeded in death by his loving wife, Marjorie, brothers Earl and Donald, and sister Marian.
Bill attended Olney High School then Lafayette College, where he earned a Bachelors of Engineering degree. There he was a member of the Acapella Choir, which began his long singing career (tenor). He sang in many church choirs and choral groups, some of which traveled overseas. By day, he was a manufacturing engineer for many years and later a consultant for The Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania. In his second retirement, he constructed quite an elaborate model railroad. You require an engineering degree in order to run it. He was also an avid sports fan, including the Phillies, Eagles and many of the local college football/basketball teams.
