Donnie Parrott
Donnie ParrottJohn Deere Logo OldDonald Gwynn “Donnie” Parrott, 50 of Magnetic Springs, passed away unexpectedly Friday morning, April 28, 2017 at the Memorial Hospital in Marysville.

He was born November 9, 1966 in Kenton to William and Sally (Sanders) Parrott, and they both survive.

On February 24, 1990, he married the love of his life, Connie Colvin in Marysville, and she survives.

Donnie loved life, it’s as simple as that.  He instilled into his children how it was to truly live and enjoy life to the fullest with no regrets and with hearts full of adventure. He enjoyed taking annual hunting trips to Wyoming with his father.  He was a man who never met a stranger; those who didn't know him knew of him and how truly great a man he was. He loved his wife and kids unconditionally and was truly at home when they were all together.  He enjoyed coaching his kids in their various activities, including North Union Junior Football.

He was a lifetime member of Magnetic Springs United Methodist Church where he had served in various leadership positions.  A 1985 graduate of North Union High School, Donnie earned his Bachelor’s Degree from Wilmington College before returning to Richwood in 1989 to join the family business, Parrott Implement.  He started at the bottom, learning every aspect of the business, working his way through the ranks to presently successfully managing the company.

He was a very active member and supporter of various clubs and associations in the community, especially, North Union Ag and sports.  Most notably, he and his family have been instrumental in organizing and supporting NUAC, which benefits athletic facilities at North Union.  Donnie was the guy who made things happen.  He was a member of The Eagles and The Elks of Marysville. He truly enjoyed spending time with his many friends, golfing and genuinely enjoyed his time with them. Donnie truly understood how precious and special time was when spent with those that he loved.  He went above and beyond in any endeavors that he would tackle, not to mention being a great salesman, a "social" golfer, and farmer.

Donnie was born and raised in Magnetic Springs south of the creek, which is where he learned the values and morals of being a selfless person willing to help anybody without a question asked. He will truly be missed as not only a loving husband, phenomenal father, and the best friend that anyone could be lucky enough to have. Donnie had hundreds of sayings that people enjoyed, but many will remember Donnie saying with a wink and a smile, “You used to be fun.”

Besides his wife and parents, he is survived three children, Billy Parrott, Columbus; Sydney Parrott, Magnetic Springs; Sawyer Parrott, Magnetic Springs; three sisters, Jean (Nevin) Smith, Marysville; Rita (Jim) Monroe, Essex; Anne (Damon) Crabtree, Marysville; a brother-in-law, Tim (Beth) Colvin, Dublin; his mother and father-in-law, Lew and Pat Colvin, Marysville; and his best friend, Tommy Guy.

Funeral services will be Friday, May 5, 2017 at 11:00 AM at the Richwood First United Methodist Church,  with Pastors Judy Cramer and Joe Rhea officiating.  Burial will follow in Claibourne Cemetery.  Friends may call on Thursday, May 4 from 2 to 8 PM at the North Union High School Gymnasium 401 N. Franklin St. Richwood, Ohio 43344.

Memorial gifts may be made to NUAC, C/O Jean Smith, 23560 State Route 4, Marysville, OH  43040; Magnetic Springs United Methodist Church, 113 Olive Street, Magnetic Springs, OH 43036; and Alzheimer's Association, 1379 Dublin Road, Columbus, OH 43215.

May God lift you and comfort you now and the days to come.  Donnie was one of my favorite people on this earth..to say he will be missed is an understatement!  Always looked forward to his goofy grin and his bear hug followed by "hey good lookin'" and a peck on the cheek. I hope the memories that he left each and every one of you help give you peace, he loved his family dearly!
Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy,

To the Parrott family! Growing up with Donnie was such a great honor to have such a great friend. We did a lot together through the years from basketball, baseball, football and just hanging out baling hay and all the crazy things young boys would do. I remember being in the car ordering Wendy's to go and as we pulled away the girl he just met. He said I'm going to marry her some day!! Lo and behold he did! He was a man of faith and of integrity who showed me a lot. There's no doubt I'll see him again love and prayers sincerely Jim Bayes

To the Parrot family, my heartfelt condolences. Donnie, was a wonderful man, who I will remember with great respect.  
Not only was he hugely involved with so many wonderful community projects,  he purposely went out of his way, to comfort me with kind and sincere words, when my son passed away a year ago.  He had coached him  in baseball and junior league football.  Even though it had been years ago, he did not forget.  He always reminded me of what a truly great man, should be like.
I pray for the entire Parrot family during this horrific time. May God watch over you all.

After conversing with Donnie for awhile he made his decision that he could help his teammates and have lots of fun too. Donnie performed his duties admirably. As a teacher/ coach of 30years I have never met such a young man that had it all... love for family, friends, and fellow mankind. I shall miss him so much . Condolences to his entire family.

To me Donnie was like the older brother I never had. He taught me how to ride mini bikes on the farm, drifting snowmobiles down the fence lines, working hard bailing hay, playing basketball and fishing on the farm pond. An early memory was a sleepover at his house when Aunt Sally made us a whole batch of Buckeyes that we quickly polished off, way too much for me and the reason I haven't eaten them since!  I always looked up to Donnie; he was a senior when I was a freshman at North Union High School where he led the school on and off the field.

To all of us Donnie was a great leader and friend.  He took on the hard challenge of living up to his namesake, our grandfather Donald Parrott, by successfully leading the family business as the third generation after his father, my uncle Bill.  He carried on the legacy of community involvement around Richwood that our grandfather instilled in us early on.  Donnie was a great family man who together with Connie raised their three children on the same farm we grew up on.  I am so proud of my cousin for advancing our family legacy although his untimely departure leaves a huge void in our generation that only Donnie could fill.  I miss you.

Prayers and heartfelt sorrow from us to the Parrott family... we have lost a great friend, true Gentleman, genuine person and mentor. I met Don in kindergarten, played baseball, basketball and football throughout our school years together, we hunted , rode snowmobiles, baled hay,shared other farm chores together, but always had fun, I only got to see Don once a year or so, we didn't talk every day, I would text him happy Birthday, or when in Ohio stop by to see him, Don was a great friend, true Gentleman, funny story teller... and relevant in his application... he will be missed by many... I am privileged to have know him and shared so much of his life.... God bless,  love you Brother... thank you for your time ... Amen

I can't find the words to express our sympathy to Connie and family, Bill and Sally and families, Lou and Pat Colvin and family... Our hearts are aching as well as those in this wonderful supportive community we live in.
The "Mrs. Wiley" -Junior Class advisor- remembers first dealing with Donnie.  The ornery teen that would  skip class to decorate for Prom and then not show up.  Prom night he showed up with a rose as a peace offering.  He made me cry!  
He made me cry again this past week-- tears of sadness-- tears of joy-- tears of laughter-- tears of sorrow.  Psalms 56:8 says that God collects our tears and feels our pain.  
We have great memories of this wonderful, caring, compassionate young man -- his smile, his humor, his hugs, his caring for family, friends, & community. He touched so many lives and will never be forgotten. RIP Donnie --you're one special person. God gained another angel.

When God calls us to Heaven while we are still young, He is selfish to have us closer to Him.  Selfishness is completely understandable, because we all want to keep our loved ones as near and as long as possible. It is so hard to let them go. Our selfishness allows us to keep alive all the great memories, accomplishments, and stories through the generations to come. How can anyone forget Donnie?

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"
--Author Unknown

My thoughts and prayers are with The Parrott Family as you move through the grieving process.  Donnie was such a good guy in so many ways.  He was filled with love for his family and friends.  He was always very respectful and friendly.  He had a "glow" about him which came from his beautiful, loving soul.  Rest in peace, Donnie.  You will never be forgotten.  God bless The Parrott Family - you did a fine job of raising a beautiful human being.  <3

Our deepest sympathy. Donnie could light up a room with just a smile. He was truly a remarkable man. He was a mentor, a friend, and a counselor by just listening. His life was truly lived to the fullest. There are very few people we meet in our lives, that have the positive impact that Donnie made on so many. He truly had Christlike qualities. Our prayers are with his friends, family and work family.

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
