Barry Michael Parks, 72, of Sandy Springs, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 28, 2013.

Candle 2Born to Eleanor and Sidney Parks, of blessed memory, he grew up in Atlanta. Barry graduated from Grady High School and then from the University of Georgia in 1963, before embarking on a 50-year career as a CPA.

A gentleman who enjoyed simple pleasures, he was dedicated to his clients and demonstrated high levels of trust and professionalism – traits he instilled in his family, which he treasured dearly.
