I knew Junior for many years when I worked with him at Dillon Floral. He was a great guy and an extremely talented electrician and repair man. Always pleasant and happy to help wherever he could. He was part of the incredible Parks family and like all the Parks he was always ready and willing to help anyone that needed them on a moments notice.
