To thousands of students, athletes, and friends he was known simply as “Coach Parks”.
Coach Parks grew up in Hollister, CA and is survived by his loving family, sons: Ralph Parks and Ben Parks, Jr., and daughters: Tina (Glenn) Simpson, Ronda Parks, and Geri-Ann (Lauro) Aguilar. He was the devoted grandfather of Nathan and Jordan Aguilar.
Coach Parks was known for his belief that ‘Life isn’t a choice, but living is, so why not choose to live life the right way? Why not choose to help people?’
