According to the report filed by Virginia State Trooper J.J. Kempo, around 9:30 Sunday morning Parrish’s 2003 Cadillac ran off the road to the left before striking a tree and a fence. Parrish died at the scene.
The exact cause of the accident is unknown, and no charges are pending.
Parrish, who lived in Skipwith with his wife Catherine, was a Vietnam War Army veteran. He was retired after working 30 years for Verizon Communications.
Parrish will be buried April 20 with military honors.
CommentsI'm sorry that he passed away. I heard that some high school students are responsible and there was some road rage on their part that hurt Mr. Parrish.
