Obituary for WILLIAM JULIUS PARRAN

William Julius Parran (Bill) was born on October 13, 1949 in Prince Frederick, Maryland to the late Minister James Franklin Parran, Sr. and Eloise Parran. Bill was called from labor to reward on October 3, 2015 at 6:25 a.m. at his home with his family and friends.

At the early age of 13, Bill was baptized in the name of Jesus and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. He was a member of Bibleway Church under the leadership of the late Bishop Henry and Minnie Brown where he was active in the youth ministry.

Bill married the love of his life, Marline Thomas on April 15, 1972. From this union, they were blessed with four children and four grandchildren.

He attended Calvert County Public Schools and later completed trade training at Charles County Community College. Bill was employed with Washington Suburban Sanitary for seven years and was a well-decorated employee for the Maryland State Highway Administration for 36 years as a certified mechanic and welder. He retired from the State Highway Administration in 2010.

Bill was a man of many talents; an avid fisherman, skilled gardener, metal fabricator and an inventor holding many patents. He was known to be a serious man but he always had a good joke to share. Bill loved spending time with his family, friends and neighbors. The Dares Beach area held a special place in his heart.

Bill leaves to treasure his memories, his loving and devoted wife of 43 years, Marline Thomas-Parran; children: Marline O. Parran, Julius Maurice Parran (Colleen), Nicole Inez Parran, Brian William Parran, and Lynn Brooks (just like our daughter); grandchildren: Amalia Aurora Parran, Alexandra Sadie Parran, Brandon Nicholas Harrell, Kylie Eloise Parran; siblings: Julia Parran, Ernestine Chew, Sara Parker (Nathaniel), Mary Francis Parran, Maggie Jones (Larry), Calvin Parran (Yvonne), Joe Parran; in-laws: Mr. & Mrs. Lowell Thomas Sr., James Thomas (Karen), Amelia Stewart (Sterling), Shirley Matthews (Thomas), Alice Dunn (Jessie), Lowell Thomas Jr. (Phyllis), Brenda Thomas, Sharon Boone (Carlos); special cousins: Hamilton Parran Jr. (Lula), Ralph Parran Sr., (Eleanora), Joseph W. Parran (Marine), Carolyn Gray (late Therman Gray), Kenneth Gross (Margo), Vashawn Gross (Dashawn), and a host of nephews, nieces, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Lillian Freeman and brother, James Franklin Parran, Jr.
